Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora has, for several years, wanted more money. But he’s willing to spend some of the money he already has on something that the son of Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor is selling: L.T.’s ring from Super Bowl XXV.
So Umenyiora has made an offer on his Twitter page: If he gets to 500,000 total Twitter followers by 10:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, he’ll buy the ring and give it back to Taylor.
Umenyiora made the offer earlier today, with an initial threshold of 1 million Twitter followers. He has since cut the goal in half. (It won’t be easy; as of this posting, Osi has fewer than 40,000 followers.)
If he makes it to the half-million goal and buys the ring, a random Osi follower will do the honors of giving the ring to L.T.
Maybe they can do it on June 17, and Osi can wish Taylor a Happy Father’s Day.
