Tiki strikes again! Remember those videos from the holiday weekend of New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara getting down at some bar mitzvah? Turns out it was none other than former Giants running back/current New York pariah Tiki Barber who was behind it all. From NJ.com:
TMZ spoke to Amukamara, who said he was joined by fullback Henry Hynoski, cornerback Walter Thurman, as well as ex-Giants including running backs Ahmad Bradshaw, Ottis Anderson and wideout Stephen Baker. The site noted Barber runs a site called Thuzio, where anyone can hire current and former athletes to make appearances for a price (Amukamara is listed at $6,250, for example, but lunch or dinner with him will cost just $3,750).
It sounds like Barber makes some good coin running this Thuzio site, but come on: is this not the most Tiki Barber thing ever, especially in his post-"Today Show" days?
The Giants held their annual golf outing Tuesday at Canoe Brook Country Club in Summit, N.J. and a few highlights made their way on line. We'll see if we can track down more throughout the day.

As Ed wrote about Monday, the Dallas Cowboys lost Sean Lee for the season due to a torn ACL in his left knee. Even for an intradivision opponent, this is a bummer, especially on the first day of OTAs. NFL.com has some reaction from Dallas head coach Jason Garrett, as well as video of the play, which shows that the injury wasn't really of the non-contact variety.
More unfortunate Giants news: Domenik Hixon's career is over after his third torn ACL.
SB Nation's Dan Kadar has a watchlist of 2015 NFL Draft prospects that's 65 deep.
The Post has five questions as the Giants begin OTAs. For me, it's how much will the Giants turn their rookies loose? In my opinion, Jerry Reese & co. did a fine job with this draft class, and I'm always eager to see the rookies get early playing time. I love what Weston Richburg could bring to the interior offensive line, and I'm hoping Andre Williams gets a shot to bolster the running back group.
NJ.com's Connor Orr has a Giants mailbag with some solid questions.
Also on NJ.com: a film breakdown of undrafted free agent signee Xavier Grimble, the tight end from USC.
ESPN New York's Dan Graziano asks an interesting question as OTAs begin: what's the Giants biggest remaining hole?
Dan Salomone of Giants.com has more questions in the vein of what we don't yet know about this year's team.
