Girlfriends are expensive.

Former NBC head Jeff Zucker once called Tiki Barber “one of those rare personalities who appeals to virtually every audience imaginable.” Now the 35 year-old running back is attempting an NFL comeback following a four-year retirement. In the years between Barber’s promising broadcasting career fizzled out. He was never terribly interesting on camera, then he sealed his fate by stepping out on his extremely pregnant wife with a 23 year-old intern. Today show viewers hate that kind of thing.

Now he’s left attempting this ridiculous comeback in an effort to re-enter the public’s consciousness. After this falls flat he’ll be forced to develop a coke problem and shack up with Bree Olson.
