Tiki Barber Compares his "Plight" to that of Anne Frank

Former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber is becoming the Lindsay Lohan of the NFL when it comes to image management. He doesn't need a publicist, he needs a whole team of public relations handlers.

He came under heavy media scrutiny for leaving his pregnant wife to take up with his 23-year-old girlfriend, Traci Lynn Johnson. (pictured above, and below, any time it's reasonable to post a Traci Johnson pic, you got to do it) And leaving your wife Ginny of 11 years for a hot NBC intern piece of ass- that's a very "Lance Armstrongian" move there- dig up the history of Armstrong's personal life to see what I mean)

From Shutdown Corner

Now Barber told L. Jon Wertheim of
Sports Illustrated that he moved into the attic of his agent, Mark
Lepselter, to escape prying eyes.

"Lep's Jewish," Barber allegedly said, "and it was like a reverse Anne Frank thing."

Wow.

That's pretty bad. I never underestimate the ability of egocentric
and clueless celebrities to play the victim card, even when they have
all the money, fame and sexy babes in the world, but this still shocks
me. Barber is really effing stupid, immature and oblivious. A icon to
football fans everywhere comparing himself to a teenage Jewish Holocaust
victim who was eventually found and exterminated in a concentration
camp.

Tiki Barber and Ronde Barber may be twins,
but I think we know which one is the evil twin and which the good twin.
If Tiki his serious about a NFL comeback, he needs to better monitor
his public persona.
