Tiki Barber Trades His Escalade for a MetroCard
In a segment on NBC’s "Football Night in America" last night, the network’s NFL desk anchors and commentators were asked what they’ve done to "green their routines." While Jerome Bettis uses the cold setting for laundry and Keith Olbermann forgoes bottled water, Cris Collinsworth said he is walking to the studio every Sunday, and former New York Giant and Cadillac Escalade pitchman Tiki Barber announced that he has taken to transit.
From the NBC web site:
Tiki Barber: Doesn’t drive anymore, and no longer takes taxis. When he travels for
work, he rents a hybrid vehicle. Relies on mass transit while in New
York City — buses and the subway. And he’s found that taking mass
transit is more efficient than driving or taking a cab.
