In one of the most bizarre stories, Robert Kraft, owner of the Patriots, is no longer in possession of one of his Superbowl rings. Not because he lost in down a drain or simply misplaced it, but because Vladimir Putin stole it from him. Let me state that again, Vladimir Putin the President of Russia, stole Kraft’s superbowl ring.
For years, Kraft has continually stated that he gave the ring to Putin, but has now turned against this statement. Why is this so? Due to pressure from the U.S. government. Apparently, the government told Kraft that. “It would really be in the best interest of US-Soviet relations if you meant to give the ring as a present.”
According to Kraft this is what happened, “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.’ I put my hand out and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out.”
Kraft will continue to ask for his customized ring, but it appears that “Moscow has it now”.
