I had not noticed this tidbit in any other story except Yahoo’s version:
“Sharpstein said Taylor’s girlfriend told him the couple was awakened by loud noises, and Taylor grabbed a machete he keeps in the bedroom for protection.”
I know it isn’t entirely appropriate to talk about this, but forgive me. I use humor as a defense mechanism. Thank god that Sean Taylor wasn’t a step faster, because as a Redskins fan I’d much rather read the headline, “Sean Taylor recovering well from being shot in his home” than the headline:
SEAN TAYLOR HACKS MAN TO DEATH WITH MACHETE, CLAIMS SELF DEFENSE
How many games does Roger Goddell suspend you for that?
