Warren Sapp Challenges Michael StrahanJanuary 30th, 2014
So far, the two biggest stories to come out of New York this week in relation to the Super Bowl have been Marshawn Lynch’s talking/lack of talking, and the brewing fisticuffs between former Bucs great Warren Sapp and former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan.
Sapp, hardly a bashful soul, went off on Strahan in front of the assembled Gotham press corps Tuesday saying in no uncertain terms Strahan is not yet worthy of being elected to the Hall of Fame, in no small part because he took advantage of a Brett Favre dive to gain a single-season sack record, which galls Sapp to this day.
Strahan, hearing Sapp’s words, became unglued calling Sapp a “sheep” and later, a “coward.”
As this tennis match continued, the ball was in Sapp’s end of the court when the NFL Network analyst took to the “Jim Rome Show” Wednesday and challenged Strahan to a throw-down for calling Sapp a coward. In talking to Rome, Sapp insisted this battle of the former NFL stars is not about Strahan’s dental structure nor Strahan’s lisp.
Joe thinks this would be wonderful theater if the two got into a hassle on either Strahan’s syndicated show with cutie Kelly Ripa or, better yet, on NFL AM on NFL Network.
