The Return Of Tiki Barber

Former NFL star Tiki Barber had it made. After retiring from football, Barber began a broadcasting career, picking up a cushy gig with NBC as a correspondent for “Today.” That all came to a screeching halt when it was revealed that Barber had an affair with an NBC intern, and he left his wife to be with the young woman, to whom he is now married.

His media career evaporated, and he would go on to compare himself to Anne Frank, among others.

In the last few months, however, Barber has been making something of a TV comeback. he has appeared no fewer than sic times on CNN since June, talking sports, athletes and other topics, and he has made a pair of appearances on Fox News.

Is Tiki trying for a TV comeback? It sure seems that way.
