Putin Says He Didn't Steal Super Bowl Ring

Putin Says He Didn't Steal Super Bowl Ring
Posted June 17th, 2013 @ 5:08pm by KFBK News

Putin insists he didn't steal the New England Patriots owner's Super Bowl ring, but offered to buy Robert Kraft another one as a gift. Kraft claimed in a speech last week that when he met Putin and showed him his Super Bowl ring a few years ago, Putin looked at it, admired it and put it in his pocket and walked off -- along with several KGB officers. Kraft said he was told by White House officials *not* to try to get the ring back but say it was a gift to keep things diplomatic. Putin says Kraft gave him the ring as a gift in 2005.  A spokesman for Putin says the ring is now on display at the Kremlin's library.
