Tiki Barber works out with soldiers

By JOHN NADEL, AP Sports Writer

February 7, 2006

KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) -- Tiki Barber's young sons woke him around 5 a.m., understandable considering the five-hour time difference from the family's New York home.

In essence, 3 1/2 -year-old AJ and 23-month old Chason were serving as an alarm clock for their father, who was out the door shortly thereafter for a special workout that had nothing to do with football.

Barber, in Hawaii for Sunday's Pro Bowl at Aloha Stadium, went through a physical training session Tuesday morning with more than 100 soldiers who will be deployed Wednesday to Japan before going to Iraq next summer.

The New York Giants' star and two law enforcement friends from New York had a chance meeting Sunday night with U.S. Army Capt. Rob Wolfe, who invited the trio to participate in physical training with his troops.

"We play this game and it's entertaining. Ultimately, it's self-serving," Barber said. "I'm proud and inspired they do what they do for freedom. These kids are doing their job. Good kids, too."

Included in the workout was a three-mile run that Barber said "kicked my butt."

"It was just a jog for them," Barber said with a smile.

Barber spoke to the group, as did one of his companions, New York City detective Kenny Cardona.

"He told them, `We got this covered on the home front. You guys do it overseas,"' Barber said.

Wolfe expressed his thanks, saying: "That hour-and-a-half or so will last these guys a lifetime. They are like a bunch of giddy girls today. To have someone like Tiki Barber come and see them is huge."

A few hours later, Barber practiced for the first time with his NFC teammates, including twin brother Ronde, a cornerback with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"This practice is a joke," Tiki said with a smile in comparing it to his workout earlier in the day. "This is vacation."

didn't see this posted either thought it was a :thumbup: type article

 
:thumbup:

Tiki is one of the better people in the NFL.

Another :thumbup: Because I know (or at least knew, fell out of contact with) CPT Wolfe.

But - the 3 mile run kicked his butt? Seriously? I guess it's a different workout, but I thought NFL players had to have better stamina than that.

 
another reason to hate tiki, I hate the ####### in the army, if he wants to workout with people who actually do something productive in this country work out with marines

Tiki could probably kick their asses in windsprints. But I'm willing to bet that if he has run three miles lately, the last time he did it was in training camp. The soldiers don't just jog the three miles, they run it. Even if you're in "football" shape, you'd have a hard time keeping up with them.

I'm pretty well aware of how soldiers conduct PT. One of two things happened in this PT session.

One (IMO, the more likely) the commander called a company run, which as a general rule aren't your toughest PT sessions. Most of the company runs I participated in were set at about a 8-8:30 pace. Not exactly the toughest runs if you're in shape.

Or two, the CO wanted to show Tiki how soldiers are athletes, and he called a release run, everyone went all out to beat Tiki. A release run, where Tiki is trying to keep up with the young studs, would wear most people out.

I'm fairly certain Tiki would win in wind sprints against most soldiers.

Too bad you can't get drafted into the army
I'm thankful that this isn't the case these days.

There will never be another draft, the draft is worthlessmarines do so much more than the army, it is a shame that some have had to put their lives on the line to try and save the ####### in the army, I just wish that tiki would give respect to some more worthwhile people

That's one of the weakest fishing trips I've ever seen. The logical conclusion that follows is of course that this is posty - but even he's not in the habit of trashing the military. Either he's hit new depths, or.....it's somebody lamer than posty. Wow.

I suggest this thread be archived or a "sticky" or something either way - whoever this is, he's one sad little attention ho, so give the poor guy the attention he's so desperate for and keep bumping this up folks! Consider it sort of a donation to charity. :thumbup:

Ps and oh btw, don't mean to sideline all that, but :thumbup: to Tiki.

Support for the troops. Way to go Tiki. We all want peace. Tiki did a special thing to show support for people risking their lives to do the bidding of our representatives. I like to see the support for our armed forces team even if it isn't specifically for my personal favorite. ;)
