Michael Strahan is announced as NFL’s Pro Football Hall of Fame member of class of 2014 at the 3rd Annual NFL Honors at Radio City Music Hall on February 1, 2014 in New York City
*After Michael Strahan was announced as one of seven players elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, Warren Sapp claims he apologized to the former Giants linebacker for comments he made four days earlier questioning his Hall of Fame eligibility.
Sapp, a 2013 Hall of Fame inductee who currently works as an analyst for NFL Network, said he approached Strahan on Saturday night to apologize.
“I hugged him and wouldn’t let him go,” Sapp said Sunday on NFL Network. “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.’
*Warren Sapp doesn’t think Michael Strahan belongs in the NFL Hall of Fame – and has made his sentiments public.
Strahan, who has achieved fame on a level few former NFL stars ever have since his retirement from football, says he could care less what Sapp thinks.
“Football was part of my life, but it is not my entire life,” said the former New York Giants defensive end, who’s one of 15 finalists for Saturday’s Pro Football Hall of Fame election. “So for some guys, maybe that’s their entire life and that’s all they have to hold onto. Playing football, sacking quarterbacks, that was part of my life, and I did it and I moved on. The tiger does not pay attention to the opinion of the sheep.”
*Didn’t mama tell you not to go sticking your business in every girl’s … um, er, you know the rest? Well apparently former NFL star Warren Sapp didn’t listen, so he’s paying now.
After being reduced to a monthly child support paycheck among his five baby-mama’s, the athlete is begging the court for some relief.
Currently he’s dishing out $2,500 for at least one of his children. But now he’s saying he’s running low on dough.
Um, he’s either lying terribly, or he’s like all those other irresponsible rookie players that spend all their money in a year.
Sapp earned $36.6 million over a 7-year period, says TMZ – that is $14,000 a day. So that $2,500 a month for one kid should be chump change, right?
Well, he did file for bankruptcy protection after he blew his money on sneakers and things.
Now he’s pulling at the court’s coattail, asking for a ‘sentence’ reduction; while he’s stacking up back child support with four other mama’s knocking on his door for their share of owed money.
*We know former NFL player Warren Sapp is breathing a sigh of relief today because a federal judge wiped out a large part of his overwhelming debt by discharging him from his bankruptcy case.
TMZ broke the story — Sapp filed for chapter 7 back in April, claiming he owed more than $6.7 million to creditors, but only had $6.45 million in assets … which included 240 Air Jordans, a lion skin rug and a boxing glove signed by Muhammad Ali.
A Florida judge decided Sapp’s financial house was in order … and discharged him from bankruptcy on September 24.
But the NFL star’s not completely out of the woods — he’s still on the hook for hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax debt, child support and alimony … which was NOT covered by his Chapter 7 filing.
Either way, it’s a giant load off his shoulders. Now he can make a fresh start.
*Warren Sapp is attempting to clean up a mess – whether or not it’s his is besides the point.
The former athlete says he was misquoted and his comments were taken out of context in a recent New York Times article.
The writer says Sapp believes Chad is “taking the rap” for the whole incident and that men don’t head-butt in fights.
So, during an interview Tuesday morning on “The Dan Patrick Show,” Sapp claims he said nothing of the sort (or he didn’t think it would get printed).
It’s questionable the interviewer would turn the Times into a tabloid, right?
Or could his made-up quotations really tell the real story.
Evelyn has been trying to move forward and heal from the incident, but her website offers a different perspective.
The reality television star’s website still has photos of the couple plastered everywhere. An oversight?
File under “interesting” and “curious”
*Ex-NFLer Warren Sapp’s bankruptcy loss could be your gain if you’re looking for some rare Air Jordans because Sapp’s entire collection is up for sale according to TMZ.
The collection is INSANE — a total of 240 pairs of Jordans … some worn, some untouched.
As EURweb already reported, Sapp filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy earlier this year. The former footballer claims he racked up millions of dollars in debts since he retired from the NFL. We can only conclude that Warren’s expensive shoe habit probably didn’t help the situation.
But now, Sapp’s loss is your gain because the entire collection is now up for auction with all proceeds going towards paying back Warren’s creditors.
