As Snoop might say, dont hate the player. The Patriots earned their Super Bowl LI win. But in this case, it just might be ok if you hate the players jewelry.
On Friday, the NFL’s Patriots finally got their Super Bowl LI championship rings, presented at home of the team’s owner, Robert Kraft, in New England.
The massive rings were shown off during a private ceremony, but thanks to the magic of social media, we got to see quarterback Tom Brady flash a stunning set of five Super Bowl rings on one hand.
And while Brady earned every one of those rings facing stiff competition, he wasn’t stingy with the bling, letting hardcore sports fan Snoop Dogg, who performed at the event, try the championship jewelry on for size.
We don’t have the total price for the rings the Patriots gave out, but in 2015, ESPN reported that Kraft spent well over $5 million for the team’s Super Bowl rings.
According the Patriots, the new rings are the biggest Super Bowl rings ever made and feature 280 diamonds, thus ensuring that in coming years we’ll see Super Bowl rings too big to actually wear like a normal human.
