As you have probably heard, Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl 25 championship recently sold at auction for a whopping $230,000. If you thought it was strange that L.T. would sell his ring, you probably thought it was even more bizarre when you found out that it was his son T.J. who had put it up for auction and that Taylor supported the decision. You ain’t seen nothing yet.

According to Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer, Taylor and his agent Mark Lepselter were told on Wednesday night that it was actor and certified nut job Charlie Sheen who placed the winning bid for the ring.

“Got no idea if this is true but if (it) is it’s hilarious,” Glazer wrote on Twitter. “Lawrence Taylor and his agent Mark Lepselter were told last night winning bidder for LT’s Super Bowl Ring was none other than Charlie Sheen!!!”

Glazer spoke with Lepselter who confirmed that him and L.T. were told it was Sheen who bought the ring, but that they have yet to confirm it with Sheen’s people.

If this turns out to be true, not even the most well-read psychoanalyst in the world could understand Sheen’s reasoning for dropping $230K on L.T.’s ring. What we do know is that nothing represents the concept of “winning” quite like a piece of jewelry from a Super Bowl championship team. That’s one theory. Another could be that one of Sheen’s pornstar girlfriends just had to have it. Then, there are moments like these that show us Charlie is a big sports fan in general. The possibilities are endless.
