Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Ronde Barber has lined up a side gig as an in-studio NFL analyst… for The Onion‘s upcoming Comedy Central series “The Onion Sportsdome”
Barber will serve as an “OSN analyst” for the series when it debuts January 11. Suffice it to say his appearances have been pre-taped.
In a clip released by Comedy Central, Barber talks to OSN anchor “Mark Shepard” about the surprising revelation that former New England Patriots safety Rodney Harrison went his entire career without realizing he was playing an organized sport:
Ronde’s twin brother Tiki Barber has made a name for himself (and not always in a positive way) as a TV analyst, so it would make sense for Ronde to make the jump as well, especially as he hits his late 30′s.
Is a fake sports news show the best way to make that career change? We may find out soon enough…
