Barber Shop 2
Tiki Barber is on the lose again, hold your head. After four years of trying to make it as a sportscaster and not having the kind of impact he thought he would have, Tiki is returning to the NFL. Well, we can only wish him luck.
At the peak of his career Barber decided to walk away from football, supposedly at the top of his game. It was rumored that he did not like the coach. The irony of the situation is that as soon as he leaves, the NY Giants win the Super Bowl. The same coach and the same quarterback whom he said could not win, won the superbowl without him. He still does not have a ring. I don’t know about other people, but I certainly was not impressed with his analysis of the games nor his interviewing skills. I think he is a better football player than he is a broadcaster or sportscaster. Hopefully for Tiki, “Barber Shop 2″ will be much better and he will find a team willing to put up with him.
The NY Giants have already indicated that even though they still hold the rights to his services, as soon as they can release him they will do so. That is such a contrast to what they are saying about Plaxico Burress. Maybe Tiki will go and play with his brother in Tampa. Comebacks are never easy- not in life nor in sports. Already, in less than 24hrs of his announcement, Tiki is in a lot of conversations. The thing about making a comeback is that it is all up to you.
You know better than anyone else what you are capable of. As long as you are prepared for the doubters and naysayers, then go ahead and announce your comeback. Life is about making not just one or two, but several comebacks.
Good luck, Tiki.
