... oh, that's simple: Come on down, Herbert Alex Simpson, you're living the dream!
PHILADELPHIA - Federal investigators have charged a Philadelphia man with trying to blackmail New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin by sending him letters threatening to expose a fictitious sexual tryst with two women.
Herbert Alex Simpson, 30, is accused of sending Coughlin two letters on July 30 and July 31, allegedly from women claiming to have had a sexual encounter with the coach in December when the Giants were in Philadelphia.
The letters demanded the coach pay $20,000 to $30,000 or his life would be made "a living hell by doing something to (his) family," according to court documents filed Thursday.
Investigators interviewed the women named in the letters, who said they knew nothing about them and never met Coughlin. The women also identified the handwriting as belonging to Simpson, a former co-worker who they said had written threatening letters to others in the past, authorities said.
Just one thing, H.A.S.: Have you ever seen Coughlin? And if so, you really think he's pulling strong?
