NBC’s Football Talking Heads Take Transit, Walk to Work

BarberH.standard.jpgIn
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 Olberman 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.

Collinsworth and Barber join fellow sports stars Sean Avery (and teammates), Cliff Lee, and several Baltimore Orioles in car-free commuting. How about it, Jeter?

Note to Tiki and Cris: Streetfilms would love to film your commute. Contact Clarence if you’re up for it.
