The NFL ones look like they're made by Josten's. Which I think they might actually be.All championship rings are ugly at this point. Just absurdly gaudy.
They're gonna need to a dolly to move the next one.

It’s been an incredible run for the Patriots since Brady became their starter, with two of the four most successful decades in NFL history. And perhaps a year from now we’ll start to talk about how far Brady can go into a third decade.
I mean, they could almost certainly have another one made instead, but that dent is now pretty iconic. No way they're swapping that out for a "better" one.Gronk showing where he dented the Lombardi this year is one of the funniest things I'll ever see.
I know, right? Playing for the Patriots must S-U-C-K.Those guys definitely don’t look like they’re having much fun.
Yeah, their HQ is about 20 minutes down the road from where I went to high school, so they successfully used the Patriots rings as a big motivator to get class rings in the assembly. Few interesting moments that came of it:The NFL ones look like they're made by Josten's. Which I think they might actually be.

Patriots will end 2010-2019 with the best record of any NFL team in any decade
At least he recognizes that he finally got a 1-on-1 with Thuney in the TD drive, didn't do anything, and then accepted the blame.Just watched mic'd up again.
Love Aaron Donald's highlights are him watching Michel zip by, bitching about no 1 on 1 matchups, him promising a stop interwaeved with clips of Edelman catches.
Have they shown anything official? I’ve seen small clip highlights and anything longer is shitty vertical filming from cell phones.The ring ceremony was a beautiful moment for the team and Pats nation. "Celebrating what is" is this perfectly titled thread, but man, when it's also about SIX SUPERBOWL WINS, this moment of "is" is right up there with the best Boston sports celebrations ever
I wonder if it feels artificial wearing a mic? I mean are you trying for sound bites? Do you need to confess after an ineffective game like he did? Are you less natural? Edelman comes across as saying things for the mic'd up portions, especially on the sideline. Maybe these guys are so used to the fishbowl it has no effect.At least he recognizes that he finally got a 1-on-1 with Thuney in the TD drive, didn't do anything, and then accepted the blame.
I thought one of the big overlooked stories of the game was how Donald was pretty much a non factor. Great scheme, great work by the OL, or just a no show by Donald?At least he recognizes that he finally got a 1-on-1 with Thuney in the TD drive, didn't do anything, and then accepted the blame.
I mean, his numbers weren't great but he was double teamed for most of the game and his teammates did a good enough job to hold NE to 13 points. If the Pats D didn't have an A+ game, the story would be how Aaron Donald and the Rams D almost completely shut down Brady and the Pats offense.
Seriously. No one on the Rams D has anything to apologize for. They were fantastic.I mean, his numbers weren't great but he was double teamed for most of the game and his teammates did a good enough job to hold NE to 13 points.

What did Watt do against the Patriots? What did Mack do? What did Bosa and Ford and Chris Jones do in the playoffs? I think the evidence is that it wasn’t a Donald no-show.
Tremendous work by the OL, especially Thuney.
Agreed. But Mankins, if I recall, was playing on a torn ACL that day. Heroic, gutsy, call it what you want. But it certainly didn't help him slow down Justin Tuck.Tremendous work by the OL, especially Thuney.
If Mankins has played that well, we wouldn’t call it The Scottish Game.
It is better to be lucky than good, but the good also tend to be the ones getting lucky. I'm not willing to take anything away from Hekker in that game. Or rather, since Feb. I've been thinking about the same thing as SMU -- that Hekker was one of the small group of variables that blocked this from being a Pats beat down, but he did his job, for sure.Hekker got pretty lucky on a couple of those too. He had one 38 yarder that was too short for Edelman to field then it rolled 27 yards.
This is fantastic. It describes me but I unfortunately purchased one of those ugly ass things. Though it looked good with the yarn on my girlfriends finger.The NFL ones look like they're made by Josten's. Which I think they might actually be.
Which is inscrutable, because a) Snake from the Simpsons mocked them 25 years ago; and b) Even before that the shitty designs they have were enough to dissuade everyone I went to high school with from buying class rings.
We had the taste of early 1990s Mainers who idolized Cinderella and White Lion, and even we knew they were garbage back then.
Wow. Since then...
