One fine summer at the semiweekly newspaper, we got a call that Lawrence Taylor was playing golf locally during a high school's booster club tournament and were invited out to interview him.
Once at the clubhouse, a booster club mom started telling me what Lawrence Taylor was wearing, at which point I said, "I think I'll probably be able to pick him out."
We drove around til we found LT's quartet, which also included Nick Van Exel for some reason. At first, we were mistaken for being the drink cart, but then we explained we were from the local rag and could we ask a few questions.
LT's response was (clean version), "I'm not answering no mo-effing questions from no mo-effing newspaper when I'm out here trying to play some mo-effing golf." He then lit a cigar and stalked off.
Slightly taken aback, we stood there a moment while one of his companions told us, "Sorry guys, I'll talk to him." He then exchanged hushed words with LT, and we were told after LT's next tee shot, we would be granted 2 minutes to talk to him.
After his next drive, the 2 minutes commenced. I asked what brought him to town and he said a football camp for a real good friend of his "Corey somebody", who had gone to high school in Houston. Most of the two minutes were spent with LT trying to guess Corey's last name, finally deciding it was "Raven", at which point I harbored the idea that it was actually Corey Redding, who had played for the Ravens. That turned out to be true.
The next question was about his opinion of the NY Giants victory over the previously undefeated New England Patriots in that year's Super Bowl. LT's response was that "the Giants had done him proud and finally shut that b**tch-ass cracker Brady up."
