    Does this mean he's headed to Dachau?

    Well, to Tiki's credit, most NFL running backs have never heard of Anne Frank. :D

    I think George Bluth would have been a more apt comparison.

    I wonder, when Peter King wrote that he wasn't really moved by his visit to Anne Frank's attic, maybe he was actually at Lepselter's house looking for Tiki?

    Or defensive backs.

  10. Re: the quote, Jon Wertheim couched it perfectly in his SI story:

    "Here is Barber writ small: He has the wit and smarts to make an Anne Frank allusion and the artlessness to liken himself—an adulterer trying to elude gossip columnists—to a Holocaust victim."

    That's an actual quote from Crowder, btw.
