As you may have known, Miami Dolphins DE Jason Taylor was married to LB Zach Taylor’s very hot sister (that’s not her pictured). I remember a couple of years ago, there was an absolutely glowing article in ESPN Magazine about how much Taylor and Thomas love each other, about how Taylor was the only guy Thomas would’ve trusted to marry his sister, etc. It was straight off of the Lifetime channel. Touching, really.
Not so much, as it turns out. Katina Taylor has filed for divorce. I don’t know why, of course, nor should I. But, the concern from a football standpoint is that that it will affect the relationship between Taylor and Thomas in the locker room. Jason Taylor says it won’t, because they’re both professionals, they just want to do their job, they respect each other, blah blah blah… but it’s the man’s sister, and you did something, somewhere along the line, to make her cry. Huge, testosterone-filled, football-playing, linebackers tend to not react well to that sort of thing. And there are kids involved, too.
I don’t believe for a second that Uncle Zach isn’t fuming. In about Week 7 when Jason Taylor goes on the DL with a mysterious injury that no one saw occur, it’s probably going to be because Uncle Zach shanked him in the shower and beat him unconscious with with one of the seven blenders they got as wedding presents.
