Ninety-nine Things About Warren SappNovember 11th, 2013
It will be a special night tonight at the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway, when at halftime, Bucs icon Warren Sapp will have his number retired and enter the Ring of Honor.
No one will ever wear No. 99 again for the Bucs, as it should be. Mentioning NO. 99, Joey Johnston of the Tampa Tribune has a list of 99 things you may or may not know about Sapp (get it, 99?). One that jumped out is the following.
14. Failed one class at UM — Public Speaking. It began at 8 a.m. He rarely showed up, but said he was given an “F” despite successfully completing all assignments.
What?! If there has ever been a born public speaker, it’s Sapp. The man was born to talk. Good grief, the man makes six-figures a year just to talk. Joe just cannot imagine Sapp failing public speaking. The instructor must have had a vendetta against him.
This is like the story of Michael Jordan being cut from his junior high basketball team. How?
Another nugget Joe found interesting was when Sapp was moved to defensive end from tight end, the guy who lost his starting job to Sapp is a guy better known for not playing football.
That man’s name is Dwayne Johnson. You know, “The Rock?”
