If you’ve always dreamed of playing an NFL player in flag football, or perhaps in badminton, now is the chance.
The New York Giants’ all-time leading rusher and three-time Pro-Bowl running back, Tiki Barber, is offering up his services for intramural sports…for a price tag of $1,950 per game.
According to UrbanDaddy.com, the online deal site, there are currently 11 days remaining for the opportunity to hire Barber to play “for your next game of flag football. Or basketball. Or kickball. Or pretty much whatever sport/gentlemanly activity you can think of.”
The game must be played within 25 miles of New York City and it’s “BYO equipment,” according to the site:
You’re getting Tiki Barber for an afternoon of flag football. Simply tell him your preferred when-and-where, and he’ll be on your team. Or the other team, if you feel like a challenge. [T]iki also excels at badminton and dodgeball.
Barber retired from the NFL in 2006 after nine years with the Giants. In June 2011, Barber and his agent, Mark Lepselter, were on New York-based radio station WFAN with host Mike Francesca, three months after Barber filed papers with the NFL to come out of retirement. Lepselter said in the interview that at some point, Barber will need “to find gainful employment eventually [w]ith four kids and the whole dynamic of that, he needs to have an income eventually.”
That job doesn’t look like it’s coming from the NFL. But perhaps Barber will find “gainful employment” from flag football. Or basketball. Or kickball. Or pretty much whatever sport/gentlemanly activity you can think of.
