Putin Denies Stealing Superbowl Ring

It's a case of he said-he said. Russian President Vladimir Putin says he did not steal a Super Bowl Ring from New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. However, Kraft maintains that during a 2005 visit to St. Petersburg he showed the ring to Putin, but never intended to give it to the Russian leader. “He put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out,” Kraft said, according to the New York Post. Kraft also said the White House called him and told him it would be in the country’s best interest to say it was a gift and he was happy to play along. The 4.94-carat ring has 124 diamonds and is worth an estimated $25,000. It has been sitting in the Kremlin library, according to a spokesman.
