    Robert Kraft: Vladimir Putin stole my Super Bowl ring

    Robert Kraft: Vladimir Putin stole my Super Bowl ring

    “I took out the ring and showed it to [Putin], and he put it on and he goes, ‘I can kill someone with this ring,’” Kraft said during the Carnegie Hall’s Medal of Excellence gala in New York City.“I put my hand out, and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out.”

    Were it not for the intervention of the White House, this could have gotten ugly. Kraft wanted his ring back, obviously not intimidated by Putin's alleged ability to kill somebody with it. The ring came in at 4.94 carats and was worth over $25,000, and Kraft was not amused. He said that he got a call from the George W. Bush-led White House, telling him that it would really be in the best interests of relations between the two countries if Kraft would change the story and say the ring was a gift.
    Kraft was unmoved.

    “I really didn’t [want to]. I had an emotional tie to the ring, it has my name on it. I don’t want to see it on eBay. There was a pause on the other end of the line, and the voice repeated, ‘It would really be in the best interest if you meant to give the ring as a present.’”

        No doubt. KGB asshole. The leader of a large nation ripping off a SB ring, and bragging he can kill someone with it. Doesn't give me much hope for the future of Russia lest the people take to the streets en masse.

          I wonder how we retaliated for this? There's no way we'd let this go. That's at least worth a Faberge egg.
