Last week, the NFL world tracked the auction of former New York Giants‘ great Lawrence Taylor‘s 1990 Super Bowl championship ring. He had given it as a gift to his son, who apparently needed the money. The ring sold for a whopping $230,401. The estimated value of the ring was $75,000-100,000.
Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora planned to purchase the ring and give it back to LT if he reached 500,000 Twitter followers. Unfortunately he fell about 450,000 short.
However, LT and his agent, Mark Lepselter, were evidently told Wednesday night that it was actually Charlie Sheen who purchased his ring.
How awesome would this be if it is true? One of the NFL’s most vile personalities getting his Super Bowl ring bought by one of Hollywood’s most vile personalities. It truly is a match made in heaven.
Here is the tweet from Jay Glazer.
Got no idea if this is true but if is it’s hilarious. Lawrence Taylor & his agent Mark Lepselter were told last night winning bidder for LT’s Super Bowl Ring was none other than Charlie Sheen!!!
Is it me, or would this be a reason for Sheen and LT to party together? What better way to break the ice than by a gesture of good faith from Sheen, returning the ring to its rightful owner? They could then share hookers and an eight ball without a care in the world.
Check back for an update if and when this story is confirmed.
