Talk about blitzes! Asked by his five-year-old daughter, Paula, to sell cookies, candy and other goodies to benefit her school, New York Giant linebacker Lawrence Taylor outdid himself by raising more than $3,000. Even parsimonious and portly general manager George Young bought $50 worth of cookies, which should be about a week's supply. Co-owner Bob Tisch visited the locker room to place an order. Linebacker Carlton Bailey, like Taylor a University of North Carolina product, spent $200 ("He's the 'backer with the biggest contract, so he has to buy the most," said Taylor), and another former Tar Heel linebacker, Tommy Thigpen, purchased cashews even though he doesn't like them. Taylor made a new buddy when he approached rookie offensive lineman Greg Bishop. "Mike," he began. "It's Greg," corrected Bishop, who bought mints, gingersnaps and wrapping paper all the same. "I just thought it looked like some good stuff," said Bishop.

O.K., would you say no to LT?
