Tom Benson Shows Off His Super Bowl Ring to Herr Pope

By 05.12.11

He told Benedict that he and Gayle were from New Orleans. Benedict responded warmly. He was pleased, attentive; his English was good.

Benson was wearing his championship ring from the Saints 2009 Super Bowl season, the big one with the diamonds and the fleur de lis — the one that, in its way, symbolized the resurrection of New Orleans.

“I said to him I’d like to show you my ring,” Benson recalled Wednesday.

A Vatican picture captures the moment, with the leader of 2 billion Catholics bending slightly to examine the proffered Super Bowl ring. A couple of cardinals are close by.
“I told him what it was, you know? It’s a Super Bowl ring. And he understood that, right, darling?” Benson said to Gayle in an interview at Saints training camp.

I have to say, that takes balls. Creole crawfish balls.
