Charlie Sheen may have been the buyer of LT’s ring

Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl XXV ring sold for $230,401 last week, and it may have been purchased by someone whose fame (and drug-fueled personal escapades) exceed L.T.’s.

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that Taylor and his agent, Mark Lepselter, were told last night that the winning bidder for Taylor’s Super Bowl Ring was Charlie Sheen.

To be clear, Glazer isn’t reporting that Sheen was the buyer — and neither the auction house nor Sheen has said anything about it — but that’s what Taylor and Lepselter have been told.

If Sheen did buy the ring, it wouldn’t be out of character for him: Sheen is a sports nut who has spent a lot of money on memorabilia through the years. Sheen once told Dan Patrick that some of the big-ticket items he has purchased in the past include Babe Ruth’s 1927 World Series ring and the contract of Ruth’s sale from the Red Sox to the Yankees. Sheen also once purchased all the bleacher seats to an Angles game to try (unsuccessfully) to catch a Cecil Fielder home run ball.

Spending nearly a quarter of a million dollars on the ring sounds like something someone would do while under the influence of a drug called Charlie Sheen.

    I’m just glad that ring didn’t end up with some random jerk.

    Anything to get his name back out in the public I guess.

    Charlie is obviously still winning.

    Charlie’s meltdown was a great couple months.

    Sheen is a donkey.

    That’s a better investment than cocaine and prostitutes.

    He’s bi-winning!

    Charlie Sheen is my hero. I’m glad the Taylor ring drama gets a happy ending.

    He sold it to him for cash?? or traded for some coca???

    Speak for yourself, lionfan419. They don’t make a condom thick enough for me to stick my Johnson into one of those skanks. What’s wrong with you?

    Go Lions! Go Badgers!

    That’s not really a bad investment. LT’s a HOF’er and his legend will only grow larger, especially if he dies relatively young… I don’t think Charlie will lose money on this one.

    Unfortunately for Sheen, Cecil Fielder never played the “Angles”…

  19. daaabears says: May 24, 2012 5:31 PM

    I’m head case.
    Sure would be more fun with all that money.

    The ring was bought by some Philly fans. Its as close they are every going to get to one!

  21. patriotera says: May 24, 2012 11:52 PM

    And people complain that athletes are over paid. Hollywood makes sports look like amatuer hour. Sheen would be pumping gas if it wasn’t for his father’s name.

    I have seen every one of Sheen’s performances in “Two and a Half Men” multiple times, and they never fail to make me laugh. Just wish he was still there. Obviously, his actions off-screen make that impossible. But, hey. If guys like Baldwin and Gibson can drag their reputations out of the trash, then their may be hope for Charlie.

    Chill you haters, Charlie is cool, y’all that think he is a loser need to realize LT is the one selling his stuff, not Charlie, and they both apparently have drug problems, but it’s LT that can’t balance his checkbook, chasing those juveniles cost money.
