Warren Sapp Still has the Magic Touch
I guess dropping about 50 lbs gives you the right to talk as much trash as you want. Then again, when your name’s Warren Sapp, you probably feel like you already have that privilege, because the 34-year-old fossil can still dish some ish better than anyone in the league. From USA Today, speaking about the awful Raiders team in ’06:
“We knew we were in trouble two weeks into the season with (then-coordinator) Tom Walsh,” he said. “He had been running a bed-and-breakfast place, and he turned our offense into a smorgasbord. Come here for fumbles, picks, sacks or whatever. We lined that thing up and just got beat to death. I mean, my momma (Annie Roberts) turned off Monday Night Football when we were in Seattle and I was having a good night. I called my momma the next day and said, ‘I know you saw your boy clowning?’
“She said, ‘No, baby. If I wanted to see somebody get killed, I’ll watch Law and Order.’ My mom never turns the TV off when her baby is on.”
Gosh, I remember watching that Monday Night game. I was at a bar full of Raider fans. It was silent after 15 minutes, and empty by the 4th quarter. They got beat by Seneca Wallace. Seneca effing Wallace. That team was horrendous. I guess Sapp indeed has the right to say what he did. And for my money, it doesn’t get any better than that smorgasbord line of his.
