Putin says he'll replace lost Super Bowl ring

Russian president Vladimir Putin speaks during the 'Sochi 2014 - One Year To Go' ceremony at Bolshoi Ice Dome on February 7, 2013 in Sochi, Russia.

This final note on the way out, updating an item we mentioned earlier this week.

Russian president Vladimir Putin said today if that Robert Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, is gonna keep whining about the Super Bowl ring that Putin allegedly stole back in 2005, well then Putin will just get him a replacement.

"You know, I do not remember either Mr. Kraft or the ring," Putin told the AFP. "We will craft a really good, noticeable thing, so it is clear that it is expensive, made of a good metal, with a rock -- so that this jewel is passed on from generation to generation in the team whose interests Mr. Kraft represents."
