Kurt Warner was stopped by TMZ Sports en route to a vehicle believed to be driving somewhere when he was asked about which city and franchise he has more allegiance to: the Arizona Cardinals or St. Louis Rams.
Warner says the Cardinals and Arizona still have players from his Super Bowl run on the roster and in the front office and since his permanent residence is in Arizona, he would say the Cardinals.
It brings up an interesting question: if and when Warner gets into the Hall of Fame, will he go in as an Arizona Cardinal?
If I was a betting man, I'd say yes.
Here's the video:
Maybe Warner can take the limbo approach and go in as a team-less player like Tony La Russa and Greg Maddux are doing in this year's MLB class of Hall Of Fame inductees.
Given Warner's logic and reasoning and the fact that he was discarded like a grocery store quarterback by the Rams, I don't think this is as big a deal as others will make it out to be.
AT ANY RATE
This caps off a miserable week for the Rams. Not only is it the start of the baseball Cardinals' 6-month takeover of the city, new Rams cornerback Greg Reid went to jail for a parole violation.
And the Rams signed a wide receiver with past injury and societal problems.
Now the heart and soul of the Greatest Show On Turf says if he had to take one franchise to senior prom, he'd take Arizona.
Maybe tomorrow Stan Kroenke will buy an additional 40 acres of land out in L.A. to provide adequate space for parking to make this week even more memorable.
