Tuck reiterates that the ring on Twitter isn’t the real thing

Peter Berg, Justin Tuck AP

When Giants linebacker Clint Sintim tweeted a picture of the team’s Super Bowl ring in March, defensive end Justin Tuck said, basically, “That’s not it.”  (Yeah, that’s an Eddie Murphy reference.  I’d embed the YouTube link, but if you click on it at work you’ll be fired before the mid-morning Fiber One bar break.)

On Tuesday, Giants punter tweeted a photo of the ring, which will be distributed to players during a Wednesday night ceremony.  And, once again, Tuck disputes the accuracy of the image.

“I’ve seen that before. It doesn’t look like that, actually,” Tuck said Tuesday at an event connected to the launch of the new movie Battleship, according to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger.  “You want to know why?  Because y’all got the wrong picture.  I told y’all it was the wrong picture [in March], and I thought I lied when I said that.  That’s not our ring.”

The good news is that the national nightmare will end on Wednesday.  Tuck also addressed the separate question of whether defensive end Osi Umenyiora will show up to retrieve his personally, given a long-simmering contract dispute with the front office.  Osi is believed to be the only Giants player who has yet to show up at the Giants’ facility during the 2012 offseason.

“You’ll find out,” Tuck said as to whether Osi will be there.

It’ll be more interesting to whether what these rings really look like.  But not by much.

UPDATE 10:10 a.m. ET:  As it turns out, there’s a Rob Lowe School of Journalism at Notre Dame.  Per Garafolo, the official ring is the ring both Sintim and Weatherford leaked.

    Who really cares what the ring looks like? The important thing is that the Giants are getting one.
    In other news….Tiki was flabbergasted that the ring controversy has lasted this long.

    I can’t sleep at night not knowing if it’s the real ring or not.

    Yet Ralph V just tweeted its the real deal. All this drama for the design? All I know is:
    “They got a ring, he got one too, he got one too….”

    I care about the quality of football on the field. Not too concerned with the rings that these guys get. But I suppose the better the ring the more it’s worth when they have to sell it a few years down the road to pay off gambling debts or medical bills.

    But but I don’t gotta ring. Come on Barack everyone should get a ring. What’s that about a fair shot? Spread the wealth.

    “The real ring makes you turn invisible when you put it on, I saw it in a movie a while back.”

    Ridiculous. Only because this involves a team from New York is this story still alive. 99% of the country doesn’t care.
