Sapp Talks Trash About StrahanFebruary 6th, 2013
First ballot Hall of Famer Warren Sapp was humble during many interviews immediately after earning the necessary votes for the 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame class on Saturday. But it seems that Sapp is now back to his true, trash-talking self.
This morning on WDAE-AM 620, Sapp responded to a question about whether it was ever a doubt he would be a first-ballot selection.
Sapp answered, “Absolutely.” But he went on to explain that it was never a question between him and another first-time finalist, Giants DE Michael Strahan, who didn’t get elected.
“Say if I rewind this to Saturday at 12 o’clock me and you are sitting and I say, ‘It breaks down whatever and whatever and then you have Michael Strahan and me. C’mon, the menace and the media darling,'” Sapp said. “C’mon. Madness, or Good Morning America? I mean, c’mon.”
Joe really enjoyed Sapp beating out Strahan. Stories out of New York leading up to Saturday’s vote were calling Strahan a “shoo-in.” Not quite.
Sapp also went on to say Simeon Rice deserves to be enshrined in Canton, and Sapp got choked up sharing the irony of his “momma’s house” in Florida being 999 miles from George Halas Drive in Canton.
