Tiki Barber Leaves NEWS 2 This Morning

This morning on NEWS 2, Cindy Hsu and Todd McDermott said goodbye to Tiki Barber, who will be going to New York Giants training camp soon. In the studio was Tiki Barber's twin brother, Ronde, defensive back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Tiki and Ronde Barber hold the distinction of being the only twins playing in the NFL).

There was also cake with Tiki's picture on it! The NEWS 2 This Morning news director, Albert-Phillip Lewitinn, gave Tiki a bag with the CBS 2 logo on it, filled with The Price is Right and other things. Todd McDermott even put on a small New York Giants jersey, saying that Tiki threatened to quit when Todd came, who was born in Buffalo and is a Buffalo Bills fan.

They said Tiki will still be doing "Sports Rap Live!", Sundays at 11:35pm. And, that he will be back sometime (my guess would be when football is over).
