Here is an example of a Super Bowl Ring that the winning players receive. This comes from the Journal Sentinel (Milwaukee) this morning.  It almost seems hideous to me - it's so gaudy! The "world" is obsessing over this football game to the point that if you want to save your sanity, you have to completely turn off the television and retreat from the world!

I couldn't help but think of this verse from St. Paul whose feast day is today - his conversion:

1 Corinthians 9:25 
And every one that striveth for the mastery, refraineth himself from all things: and they indeed that they may receive a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible one.

Love the 'six' large diamonds, over smaller ones which taken together make a 'lovely' six-pointed star :(

Am I the only one who notices things like this? :)
