Osi Umenyiora Makes Twitter Bet to Buy Back Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl Ring

Osi Umenyiora made an offer to Twitter nation on Saturday — spike his Twitter followers to 500,000 and he’ll buy back Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl ring and return it to him. The goal had to be reached by 10 p.m. Saturday night in order for the deal to be complete. So how far off of 500,000 was Umenyiora? Oh, only about 445,500. As of 10 p.m. Saturday night, Umenyiora finished with about 54,600 followers and as of posting time, he had 54, 967.

So you might be asking what happened to Taylor’s ring? Well he gave it to his son, Lawrence Taylor , Jr., as a gift. Taylor’s agent told FoxSports.com that Taylor was completely unaware of the auction, but was fine with his son’s decision to auction it off.

As of 10:15 p.m. Saturday night, the current bid for the ring was at $174,546.

For a guy that’s been known to complain about wanting more money, this sure seems like a bad financial move by Umenyiora. He must be both the most hated and loved guy — hated by the people trying to bid and loved by Taylor’s son — for bringing so much publicity to this auction.
