    Tiki Barber States He May Retire After This Season

    Link...
    This is kind of a surprise, he's only 31 and at the top of his game right now. He says he has other interests that he wants to pursue, and thats good, especially since alot of them are community oriented. Its a little out of the ordinary with todays athletes, especially since he'd be leaving 8+ mil on the table...
    RIP Sarah Noll~11-8-87 to 4-17-08

    For some, money isn't everything! Good for him if he means what he says and says what he means.

    I doubt he retires. Nobody that has said it in the middle of the season has left unless it was injury related. Me thinks this is a ploy for more money after having a career season.

    I really don't think so. I don't know him personally but he's from my town. He makes a ton of appearances around the city. I don't get a real cocky, money - is - everything vibe from him.

    i think that is cool!
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    With all the promotional ads and commercials he's doing, he's probably sitting on an insane amount of money! No wonder he's thinking about retiring...
