Amid internet reports that Charlie Sheen bought Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl ring, the actor went on the Dan Patrick Show and set the record straight saying, “As much as I would be honored to own such an important artifact… I had nothing to do with the acquisition.” The ring would have added to Sheen’s collection, who already owns Babe Ruth’s 1927 World Series ring.
The rumor first went viral when Jay Glazer of Fox Sports tweeted: “Got no idea if this is true but if is it’s hilarious. Lawrence Taylor & his agent Mark Lepselter were told last night winning bidder for LT’s Super Bowl Ring was none other than Charlie Sheen!!!”
The hall of fame linebacker has fallen under hard times, and last year was sentenced to six years probation for sexual misconduct and patronizing an underage prostitute. But It was Taylor’s son who decided to auction off the Super Bowl XXV championship ring with SCP Auctions, selling for $230,000
The only drug Charlie Sheen is on is Charlie Sheen, but back when the movie star filmed Major League he was on steroids. In a new interview with Sports Illustrated Sheen admits, “Let’s just say that I was enhancing my performance a little bit. It was the only time I ever did steroids. I did them for like six or eight weeks. You can print this, I don’t give a f-. My fastball went from 79 to like 85.”
The 1989 baseball satire grossed more than $50 million, in which Sheen starred as the incarcerated pitcher Rick Vaughn. Sheen stopped using when he could not control his temper. “I didn’t like the haircut because it generated so many comments in bars,” Sheen said. ”I’ve got enough of that already. Add that to the mix, and it’s a recipe for a fistfight!”
I am not sure what is more surprising, that Charlie Sheen has a temper or that he used steroids?
It was just a matter of time before Charlie Sheen got his own reality show, and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is in talks with the tiger blood bi-winning actor to do just that. Cuban confirmed the good news telling the Dallas Morning News, “You’ve got somebody that everybody has a whole lot of interest in who’s doing some interesting things, to say the least, and we always look for interesting programming by featuring interesting people doing interesting things.”
Cuban and Sheen are experimenting with the idea of Sheen’s reality show or hosting his own talk show for HDNet, but the controversial bad boy has other offers.
“We’ll do something together, but it’s not certain it will be a show. It’ll come down to what he wants do and what his situation is,” Cuban said. “We’ll just figure it out from there, but it’s a unique opportunity, I’ll say that.”
Sounds like a #winning idea to me.
A minor league hockey team is hosting a Charlie Sheen night the weekend of St. Patrick’s Day…. because they figured St. Patrick’s Day is a “holiday Charlie enjoys celebrating.” The ECHL’s Bakersfield Condors will give free admission to anyone who passes a drug test, will give out Charlie Sheen masks to the first 1,000 fans and will try and attempt to break the Twitter World Record by reaching 1 million followers. Sheen set the record earlier this week in 25 hours and 17 minutes. Condors President Matthew Riley said, ”We would invite him come up to the game and participate in a ceremonial puck drop and just have fun for the night with our fans. We’ll even give him the ticket special for dressing up like himself.”
I hope the Condors plan on winning
