Umenyiora has plans to honor LT by returning the ring to the legendary Giant—with a catch.
Umenyiora has made an offer on his Twitter to all of his followers that, should he be able to reach 500,000 followers—originally set at 1,000,000—by 10:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, he will purchase the ring and give it back to Taylor. When he has reached that goal, one lucky follower—chosen at random—will have the opportunity to present LT with the ring in person.
Deadline is 10pm tonight for the auction for LT'S Ring! Im reducing it to 500,000!!!— Osi Umenyiora (@OsiUmenyiora) May 19, 2012
Again, it will be a Random person who follows that will get to give it back, not the 1,000,000th person that follows— Osi Umenyiora (@OsiUmenyiora) May 19, 2012
With around 40,000 followers at the time of this article’s posting, Giants fans have their work cut out for them if they wish to get the ring back in LT’s possession.
So, if you do not already, follow Osi Umenyiora on Twitter and spread the news to your friends. There are only a few hours remaining before LT’s ring lands in the hands of a fanatic with an awful lot of cash to spend on elusive sports memorabilia in this economy.
