Super Bowl XLV
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’re not the only ones who think the Green Bay Packers might have a Super Bowl hangover. Former New England Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi, a three-time Super Bowl champion, called out the team’s leaders after receiver Donald Driver said the players have no plans to hold organized workouts.

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 […]
We’ve all made stupid bets.
Usually it’s because of that sonofabitch called pride, which needles you in your side just as soon as you’re forced to defend your home turf. A wise man once told me never to bet with your heart unless it’s a lead-pipe cinch.
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 […]
