Last week, for the first time in a long time, NFL legend Lawrence Taylor made headlines for something other than prostitutes and legal troubles. Mind you, this latest development wasn't all that much better than those two things, but at least it spared him a night at the local jail. (Progress!) What was this remarkable occurrence that reminded people that L.T. was still alive?
News that he was hawking one of his Super Bowl rings.
There was a whole big brouhaha heading into this past Saturday regarding who would step up to make the big purchase, but ultimately the event came and went with very little fanfare. Everyone sort of presumed that we wouldn’t hear anything else on the matter, so nobody even bothered to check out who actually bought Taylor’s chip.
Nobody except Jay Glazer.
Per Glazer’s Twitter:
Got no idea if this is true but if is it's hilarious. Lawrence Taylor & his agent Mark (cont) tl.gd/hi03nm— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) May 24, 2012
Again, I have no clue if Charlie sheen was the actual winning bid but LT & Lepselter were told he was. If true, wow, so many ways to go here— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) May 24, 2012
Just talked to @marklepster who confirmed they were informed it was Charlie Sheen but they are still trying to confirm it by Sheen's people— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) May 24, 2012
#Winning. Except L.T., of course. That dude stays losing.
