Earlier today, Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora said that, if he gets to a million followers in one day on Twitter, he’ll buy Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl XXV ring (which Taylor gave to his son and which Taylor’s son is selling) and give it back to Taylor.
Osi later revised the limit to 500,000, with a deadline of 10:00 p.m. ET.
It’s now 10:00 p.m. ET, and Osi has less than 55,000 followers.
The good news is that the stunt allowed Osi to pick up 20,000 or so followers.
The better news (for Osi) is that he doesn’t have to buy the ring.
