“Vlad, babes, I’m gonna need that back ya know.”

Russia’s president is fighting back: No, he did not steal a Super Bowl ring. And no, he’s not rockingthe diamond-encrusted prize on his finger, either.  President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman denied accusations that the leader kept a Super Bowl ring that New England Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft wanted back.  Both sides agree that the ring, with its 124 diamonds, changed hands during Kraft’s visit to St. Petersburg, Russia, in 2005.  “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,'” Kraft said, according to the New York Post. “I put my hand out and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out.”  Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots, says his ring was taken in 2005.  Kraft made the comments at an awards gala Thursday night in New York.  A few days after the incident occurred, amid confusion as to whether the ring was a present or was kept by mistake, Kraft issued a statement that said it was a gift.  That’s the way Putin sees it, the president’s spokesman said Sunday.  “What Mr. Kraft is saying now is weird,” Dmitry Peskov said. “I was standing 20 centimeters away from him and Mr. Putin and saw and heard how Mr. Kraft gave this ring as a gift.”  The 4.94-carat ring is in the Kremlin’s library, where all official state gifts are kept, he said.

So this is awkward.  Did Kraft give the Super Bowl Ring or did the Ruskies just take it?  I guess I’ll go with Kraft on this one.  Usually the guy giving the gift knows whether he actually gave the gift  or not.  Besides, why the hell would Ol’ Rob give his Super Bowl Ring to Vladimir Putin anyway?  Seems ridiculous.  On the other hand, we can trust the Russians now right?  Aren’t they our buddies? I mean when it comes to any type of foreign relations or foreign policy the Russian government would never take advantage of an awkward situation, just ask the peoples of Poland, Romania, and the rest of Eastern Europe.   After World War Two and Nazi occupation they definitely welcomed the Ruskies and communism with open arms…..oh wait, I think the Russians made up that version of history too babes.
