The Landry Hat has launched a full investigation into Fred Brito’s claim that he has purchased at auction Troy Aikman’s 1993 Super Bowl ring.
Mr. Brito obviously doesn’t know what I do for a living, and quite frankly, that’s OK. The investigation won’t end until I can prove he has the ring, and box seats to Dallas Cowboys games. If Mr. Brito had the ring, why would he post a silly fake JPEG of it on his site? If I had that ring I would be showing pictures of it on my hand. I would be showing pictures of it all over my house. I would be kissing it. I would sleep with it.
What I find interesting from the start is Mr. Brito says he is from New Mexico, yet I do not have one visitor from New Mexico in my stats. Interesting. Very interesting.
Secondly, as one poster revealed, auctions do not make people sign confidentiality agreements. Why he doesn’t want to admit how much he paid for the ring is suspicious in its own right. The fact they cost $10,000 to make, and he claims he’ll auction Emmitt Smith’s off for $20,000 is downright odd. And then, even more interesting, is Mr. Brito, convicted criminal of lying, does not present on his Web page that he owns Emmitt Smith’s ring. He does present, however, that he owns three Kennedy rocking chairs from the White House.
Mr. Burrito has been caught lying as early as last year. Read this. Has he truly learned his lesson or paid his debt to society as he states?
Los Angeles readers will recall that Brito made local headlines in August, 2005 after he was fired from UCLA for falsifying his resume and disclosing his previous convictions for embezzlement and theft, along with a lengthy history of gaining employment using false credentials, including work as a Roman Catholic priest and other fundraising positions. At the time the LA Times printed the front page story about him, he had already found work with the American Red Cross in Pasadena, who fired him a month later for, again, falsifying his credentials and not disclosing his criminal history.
Look what Freddy says to the blogger after he made the post. Sound familiar?
