Tiki Barber takes on Michael Johnson, Jeremy Wariner

Tiki Barber sighting this morning! No, really.

Naturally, this tip came from Mrs. WatchDog, who sometimes watches "Today" and told me Tiki was going to be sprinting against Michael Johnson.

Tiki did look good bursting out of the blocks between Johnson and 400-meter stud Jeremy Wariner. They did not show the end of the race, if there was one, so all I have to go on is the start.

(NBC televises the Olympics, by the way; hence its particular interest in such sports.)

Bashing Tiki has been fashionable for the past year or so, but I think he's fine on TV, and can do it for many years if he so chooses. I just think he'll eventually decide he has more important things to do with himself.

Michael Strahan, on the other hand, was born to do TV, and I can see him doing it forever.

Which current Giant will be the next eventually to take the network TV plunge? I would not bet on Jeremy Shockey, unless it's for some sort of scary reality series aimed at the young, reckless Oklahoman demographic.

Eli? Um . . . no. Antonio Pierce is a wannabe, but I don't see it.

I've got it! A reality series featuring Tom Coughlin and Chris Snee, a cross between "Coach" and "The Mothers-in-Law" and "All in the Family" and "Patton."

If anyone comes up with a good name for the show, he or she will be a candidate for the Friday comment contest award. "Coach-in-Law?" "Father Knows Football?" "Pulling Your Guard Down?" "NYFG Blue?" I don't know. Give it a shot.

And bonus WatchDog kudos to the first person to identify No. 932 in the picture.

I have a Friday newspaper column to write now. Ssssseee-ya!
