http://www.boston.com/news/world/eur...ural_exchange/

What are the oods of Kraft getting it back from a former KGB operative?

I just read the same story on CNN. Quite funny, actually. The Kremlin says it was a gift.

Interesting gift.

Leave it to the Russians to say it was a $30,000 gift. Somehow I don't think Bob is that generous.

I thought Putin played on special teams, he earned the ring.

Mr. Burns: All we ask is preferential treatment because of my fabulous wealth!
[Burns holds the trillion dollar bill up.]
Castro: May I see?
Mr. Burns: Ho ho ho, see with your eyes, not with your hands!
Castro: Please, we are all amigos here!
Homer: Mr. Burns.. I think we can trust the president of Cuba..
Mr. Burns: [hands it to Castro, and waits a couple of seconds.] Now, give it
back...
Castro: Give what back?
Mr. Burns: D'ohh...

That is unbelievable, he has to give it back. Bob Kraft usually has no problem opening his mouth so he should have asked for it right then

I tried on a World Series ring, I guess I should have kept it

I tried one on at Fenway when they had the first day of the raffle. I don't know who it belonged to but it was the real deal. I could have tried Johnny's on at his booksigning , he was letting people do that but I didn't even notice. I guess I was too distracted

Now Kraft is saying he gave Putin the ring, I would think Putin would be embarrassed and give it back but I guess not. Bob Kraft is a class act.

Bob Kraft can probably get the ring replaced rather easily. It'd be expensive, but easy.

However, reading the statement that Kraft made, I can't help wondering if it was being made from some underground prison while a pistol was being held to his head...
