Jersey Monday: Tiki Barber

Monday Night Football Matchup: New York Giants at New Orleans Saints

One of the things about trying to get at least one jersey from every NFL team is that at some point you'll have to eventually get jerseys from teams you don't like. And usually when you do that, you end up compounding the problem by getting the jersey of a player you don't like.

That's the case with my Tiki Barber jersey. It's the only Giants jersey in my collection, from back when the Giants wore this style that's more associated with their teams of the '80s and '90s. I have no plans to update the Giants slot in my collection to their current style because there's no one on the team that rises above my general dislike for the team (like, say, a Deion Sanders on the Cowboys or a Dave Meggett on the Patriots). And I obviously have no intention of wearing this jersey anytime soon. It's among the many in boxes in my basement, and the only reason it's even getting spotlighted here is to stick with the MNF theme (I already showed off one of my Saints jerseys and I have to save the other one for their next MNF appearance to keep the order going).

Jersey Monday will continue every Monday until I run out of jerseys to spotlight. And since I’ve got more than 150 of them, that could be awhile. For the remainder of the NFL season, Jersey Monday will feature one of the teams playing on Monday Night Football.
