Warren Sapp has apparently said all he has to say about Michael Strahan, because he finally waved the white flag on Saturday night. Despite Sapp’s insistence over the last year that Strahan does not deserve to be in the Hall of Fame, the former New York Giants defensive end was inducted into Canton over the weekend. And Sapp welcomed him with open arms.
“I hugged him and wouldn’t let him go,” Sapp said on Sunday, via Anwar S. Richardson of Shutdown Corner. “I said, ‘Please forgive me.’ I said, ‘Dumb Lex Luthor came to the city of Gotham and pulled Superman’s cape. How foolish could I have been, my man? Please forgive me.
“And if he tells the story any different that, he’s lying to you, America, because I sure did apologize. I’m going to beg for forgiveness because there’s a party in Canton, and I promise you, I’m not going to miss it.”
Just last week, Sapp got so wrapped up in his war of words with Strahan that he challenged him to a fight. For whatever reason, Sapp has been dead set against Strahan joining him in the Hall of Fame and believes his sack record should have an asterisk next to it. He has apparently changed his mind.
“Welcome to the club, buddy,” Sapp said. “I’m so happy he’s there. We’re all there. This game cannot be told without Michael Strahan and Warren Sapp because Sapp and Strahan go well together.”
For the most part, it seems like Strahan would love to go without Sapp. Warren has been the one attacking him for seemingly no reason. Both players are two of the best defensive linemen to ever play the game. Sapp should have stopped talking sooner.
