Super Bowl Bling

This is what every player talks about. They all want to “get a ring” before they retire. One team playing on Sunday will be designing theirs soon. We especially like four of the rings shown above. Be sure to check out the Minnesota Vikings’ rings… oh, that’s right… they don’t have any.

From the Green Bay Press-Gazette:

Wherever in the world Jerry Kramer's Super Bowl I ring has been, it's back where it belongs.
The ring, which Kramer, 70, lost on an airplane 25 years ago, was returned to him during a ceremony Tuesday at Lambeau Field that left the Lombardi-era Packers guard with a broad smile. ...

On a flight in 1981, Kramer removed the ring while washing his hands. He returned to his seat and two minutes later realized he left the ring behind. By then it was gone. Announcements on the plane did not recover it. Kramer was crestfallen and not a little bit angry. He was mad at the person who took and refused to return it, and at himself for losing it in so casual a manner. "It isn't just diamond and gold. It's a collection of memories and moments," he said.

On April 21, Kramer learned from a friend in Canada and from John Nitchske, son of Kramer teammate Ray Nitchske, that the ring was for sale on the Mastro Auction Web site. ... Mastro bought the ring and returned it to Kramer on Tuesday in front of the Vince Lombardi statue at Lambeau Field. Kramer viewed it for the first time 30 minutes earlier. ... Kramer said he appreciated the efforts of Mastro and the offers from friends, which he refused, to buy the ring for him.

Where the ring has been for 25 years is unknown, though Kramer invites anyone who knows something to leave the information at his Web site. "I don't know if we'll ever find out where it's been or how much fun it's had, but I'd like to know," he said.
