Former New York Giants star turned Today broadcaster Tiki Barber lost quite a few fans when he left his pregnant wife to be with his 23-year-old girlfriend.
A remark he made to L. Jon Wertheim of Sports Illustrated regarding that situation isn’t likely to help the ex-running back win any back, we’re guessing.
Telling SI that he moved into the attic of his agent, Mark Lepselter, to escape prying eyes, Barber used the following, wholly unnecessary analogy:
“Lep’s Jewish, and it was like a reverse Anne Frank thing.”
Mmm. A millionaire ex-NFL star and TV personality vs. a teenage Holocaust victim. So similar. What’s next, someone likening the lockout to modern day slavery?
No harm done, you might say, and you might be right, but still, that’s a pretty asinine comment at best, especially from a dude whose image took more of a pounding over wooing Traci Lynn Johnson than his body did in 10 NFL seasons.
