You hate your boss? Wow. You must be the first.

So I haven't found anything yet deserving of a Friday Classic Video post, so I thought I'd extend a warm welcome to an old friend. (If you have any cool video suggestions, let me know in the comments or something. Thx! KBye!)

The longtime Giants running back Tiki Barber, in case you haven't heard, has been talking a lot of shit lately, now that he's safely retired and become a media hack for NBC. First, he ripped Eli, and just recently he alerted us to the fact that -- despite saying he wanted to retire before his body got broken during last season -- the real reason he quit was that he hated Tom Coughlin. In his words, "If Tom Coughlin had not remained as head coach of the Giants, I might still be in a Giants uniform. [Tom Coughlin] robbed me of what had been one of the most important things I had in my life, which was the joy I felt playing football."

So Tiki hated his boss. So he quit.

Well, in honor of Tiki's newfound fondness of whining like a little bitch, I thought I'd alert him to a new car I just saw that might be right up his alley:

I saw this pic in the comments section of East Village Idiot. Check that thing out, dumbass.

I never really liked Tiki, I thought he was kind of a bitch. A couple of years ago, though, I decided I had to give it to him that he was one hell of a back, and he was.

His recent behavior, though, does confirm his bitchood.

First of all, you don't publicly talk shit about a teammate unless they really really deserve it and that rule doesn't change just because you retire. Your more of a pussy b/c you didn't have the balls to say it when you were there.

Secondly, yes, Coughlin is a dick but let's not forget, LET'S NOT FORGET, that Tiki was a hell of a back except for crunch-time situations and inside the 'red zone' when he inevitably fumbled before Coughlin got there.

Also, I thought it was a bitch move for him to announce his early retirement last year - it was a distraction for the whole team and it seemed to me that he did it for the extra attention.

I'll be anyone $20 that Tiki is hosting 'The View' in the next five years. The only requirement is that you have a vagina right?

Yeah, Tiki was great the last 3 years, but I remember not too long ago wishing the Giants would cut him or trade him because he kept on fumbling the damn ball.

Coughlin came in, and that was the first thing he did -- fix Tiki's fumbling problem.

Then Tiki goes on to have the best three years of his career, then quits, then blames the coach who turned his game around.

That, my friends, is chutzpah.
