The impenetrable mystery of Lawrence Taylor's black button-up shirts

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
Former sack machine Lawrence Taylor renewed his running-into-trouble-with-the-law hobby this week when he was charged with third-degree rape and patronizing a prostitute after "contact" with a 16-year-old.

This is yet another sad chapter in a life in the public eye mired by repeated embarrassments.

But the thing I'm most amazed with is that LT seems to be wearing the same black button-up shirt everytime he gets in hot water.

Here he is this week:

And it sure looks like the same top he was wearing in this 2009 booking photo.
