Have you ever wondered why some athletes go broke, despite at one point having a bank account large enough to support a third world country? This is a prime example.

Former NFL Pro Bowl talent Warren Sapp, who’s already once filed for bankruptcy, placed a $100,000 dollar bet on Super Bowl 48 with Miami-based rapper, Rick Ross.

It all went down at Marquee nightclub in NYC … when the Hall of Famer made the bet with Rick in front of a ton of people.  They also tweeted about the wager, so neither side can try to Aaron Rodgers their way out of this one.

Here’s the tweet of their bet which features a photo of the two:

So who picked who? According to TMZ, Sapp is confident the Denver Broncos will come home with the Lombardi Trophy while Ross is all in with the Seattle Seahawks.

Should be interesting to see if Sapp honors his word if the Seahawks come out victorious considering he just had his massive shoe collection auctioned off a few months ago to pay debtors.
