I'm usually an NFL Network fan, but a segment on this morning's pre-game show was truly difficult to sit through.

Warren Sapp

threw on a Santa hat and beame "Sapp O'Claus," handing out gifts to various people around the NFL. Sapp's first gift was for

Donovan McNabb

. He built up the suspense, saying he had something for McNabb, who needed a little refresher on the rules. A woman in a Santa's helper outfit handed Sapp a gift bag, but whoever was in charge of actually putting the gifts in the bag, screwed up. The bag was empty. After a quick search, Sapp found the gift -- a rulebook, obviously mocking McNabb for not knowing there were ties.

Meanwhile,

Marshall Faulk

took the whole fake laughing thing to another level, while the host noted that this was truly a terrible segment. I would have to agree.

Sapp's other gifts were a Get out of Jail free card for

Pacman Jones

; a nerd to hang out with for

Antonio Pierce

; oversized spectacles for the referees; and a gun holster for

Plaxico Burress

.

Anyway, I'll try to provide some updates on the 1 o'clock Chargers-Bucs game. And I'll be back at 3:45 to host the
