Given the fact the Patriots’ most recent Super Bowl win came and went in low-key fashion, with barely anything about it to make you notice them then or in the months since, it figures that they’d take the subtle approach with their rings.
Or not, as the case they be.
According to Phil Perry of CSNNE.com, owner Robert Kraft passed out the rings at his home last night, and they were billed as the biggest Super Bowl rings ever, including 205 diamonds each.
Their rings from 2003 and 2004 had had 104 and 124 diamonds, respectively, for the purposes of comparison.
“I have been blessed to host four Super Bowl ring ceremonies, and just like the rings we present, we have tried to make each ceremony a little bigger and a little better than the one before,” Kraft said in a statement from the team. “Football is the consummate team sport. These championship rings represent all that the team endured and overcame together. The players on this team will forever be bound by the memories this ring represents. The presentation of the rings is one of my favorite moments. I love watching the expressions on the faces of each of our players and the range of emotions they experience when they see the ring for the first time and the pride they all have when they put it on. Tonight’s celebration is really a culmination of a job well done.”
And, of players’ and coaches’ ability in the future to look like Liberace.
