Washed-up NFL player accuses Philadelphia of poisoning his food, back when, you know, there was a chance he could actually impact the game

Warren Sapp tries to eat Donovan McnabbThis just in from the Department of Paranoid Self-absorbed Prima Donnas:

Warren Sapp has a big appetite. (In the above picture, he actually removed his helmet mid-game so he could try to eat to Donovan McNabb. ) And when something gets in the way of him satiating that appetite, he gets pissed.

Meanhwile, you don’t hear so much about Warren Sapp these days. Old age must be setting in.
Sapp insisted Wednesday his food was tampered with during his nine-year tenure in Tampa Bay from 1995-2003.

"You get your food poisoned," Sapp said at Raiders headquarters. "They don't want you out there on Sunday. You don't think about it. It just got crazy."

He pointed specifically to three incidents: Before the NFC Championship Game in Philadelphia at the end of the 2002 season, which the Bucs won en route to the Super Bowl title; before a divisional playoff game at Green Bay in January 1998; and at New Orleans, where the Bucs played a game during the 1998 season.

"I know it's real, especially in Philly, come on," said Sapp.
[…]
For example, Sapp said that about a month after the Bucs won the Super Bowl, he and a friend traveled from Philadelphia to New York to watch Michael Jordan in his retirement tour at Madison Square Garden. First, they had dinner in Philadelphia, trading plates at the restaurant after their orders came. Then, Sapp said, his friend repeatedly threw up all the way to New York.
Because the friend ate some of Sapp's dish, which the kitchen staff purposefully made gross. We get it.

Actually, on second thought, now we're inclined to believe him — Eagles fans are a bunch of immature dicks.
