The Green Bay Packers are selling Super Bowl rings — fake ones. Fans can now buy replica Super Bowl XLV rings from the team because, you know, you won the Super Bowl too. Season ticket holders and shareholders can get a 10-karat ring identifying them as such for $2,499 or a cheap-ass version for $399. [...]
Not so deep in the confines of the Hall of Fame of the most-storied franchise in the NFL, four iconic silver statues named after the same franchise’s most-famous coach stand as a testament to 13 NFL Championships. Most would say that the trophies represent the four greatest of these championships: four Super Bowl victories, champions of a [...]
The Green Bay Packers’ Super Bowl rings were made by Jostens. Here’s how they were created. (Via CheeseheadTV)
The Green Bay Packers received their Super Bowl rings Thursday night during a private ceremony at Lambeau Field. Of course, there are plenty of photos. The stats: the rings are made of platinum, with 18-karat yellow gold, and weigh 116 grams. Diamonds totaling 3.35 carats are featured.
The Green Bay Packers will hold their Super Bowl ring deal this evening at Lambeau Field. Here’s who’s invited — everyone but cornerback Josh Bell and you. Fact of the matter is, you probably don’t deserve a Super Bowl ring and neither does Josh Bell. Bell was placed on injured reserve during training camp. The [...]
We already know rules don’t apply to the NFL, especially their own. Despite a lockout that isn’t likely to be resolved until late June at the earliest, the Green Bay Packers will hold their Super Bowl ring ceremony on June 16. The league has reportedly granted the team an exemption — their second one this [...]
It’s a good thing the Green Bay Packers squared off against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. Had they faced two-time AFC Championship game losers, the New York Jets, the Lombardi trophy would currently reside in New Jersey. No, I’m serious. Jets coach Rex Ryan said so. And you know he’s not a fat, blathering, idiot who just loves to hear himself talk.
The NFL lockout has a lot of far-reaching consequences, but for the Green Bay Packers, it’s also put a hold on the traditional post-Super Bowl championship activities. The Packers haven’t even ordered their Super Bowl rings because the team wants to consult the players before doing so. During the lockout, team personnel and coaches are [...]
There was word Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson suffered an injury during Super Bowl XLV, but the extent of it wasn’t reported.
Nelson suffered a bursa sac injury in his left knee — bursa sacs are filled with fluid and act as a gliding surface to reduce friction between tissues in the body (yeah, I looked that up).
I don’t think anyone can argue that Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews is one of the best defensive players in the league.
He’s one of the NFL’s top pass rushers, he can completely disrupt opposing offenses and he has to be game planned for. That being said, he’s not the greatest run-stuffing linebacker, even on his own team.
Someone brought Giovanni Bartocci’s story to my attention last week. It disappeared into the ether until I was digging through my email last night and I laughed to myself, “Oh yeah, that crazy bastard.” Bartocci is a Green Bay Packers fan. He’s also one of those guys. There’s something not quite right about him, but [...]
