The case of the Super Bowl ring: Kraft says Putin pocketed it
Share Now on:
President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin had what’s being called a “tense” meeting about Syria on the sidelines of the G-8 summit today.
But that’s really a sidebar to what I really wanted to mention, which is a story that’s been out there for a day or two now. Putin is being accused of stealing a Super Bowl ring from Robert Kraft, the guy who owns the New England Patriots.
- It turns out that Kraft gave it to Putin to look at when they met back in 2005, and Putin just put it in his pocket.
- Look it up if you don’t believe me.
