Take That, Tiki

February 10, 2008 9:00 PM

Don’t expect New York Giants’ fans to forgive and forget perceived verbal slights by Tiki Barber since he traded his Giants uniform after the 2006 season for a spot on the “Today” show couch and an opinion on NBC’s “Football Night in America.” During wall-to-wall coverage of the Feb. 5 parade celebrating the newly crowned NFL champions’ Super Bowl win along downtown Manhattan’s fabled “Canyon of Heroes,” one man in the thousands lining Broadway, identified only as “Charlie” from East Patchogue, N.Y., shouted into a microphone held by WCBS-TV sportscaster Sam Ryan: “We did it! We’re No. 1! Tiki said we couldn’t do it. You’re wrong!”
