Warren Sapp and Michael Strahan continue to fight like little kids

Warren Sapp shows his abrasive (but entertaining) personality once again.

Remember when you were a kid and you were really good at something, but some other kid got a lot of praise for doing the same thing -- only worse. And you got all pissy and started insulting that kid? No? Well, neither do I. I was horrible at lots of stuff as a kid. But I'm guessing that's what Warren Sapp is doing with Michael Strahan right now.

Sapp has had some kind of weird feud going on with Strahan for as long as I can remember. Actually, ever since Strahan took the sack record in a year Sapp vowed to get it himself. Oops. At the circus that is the Super Bowl Media Day, he told Newsday.com once again that Strahan doesn't belong in the Hall of Fame. And then Strahan called him a coward, in that same story. And Sapp -- you know what, I don't even care what Sapp said.

Hey, Warren Sapp even has a bit of a point. Michael Strahan's credentials aren't overwhelming, and he did have a really bad first three years in the NFL. But he was also good enough to post the all-time single-season sack record -- even if that was inflated by Brett Favre a bit. Even with that, it's impressive.

This is some petty fighting, but that's Warren Sapp. He can be an asshole, as many Bucs fans and media will tell you, and he's blunt -- but he also tells you exactly what he thinks.
