The Indianapolis Colts got their Super Bowl rings in a private ceremony, and they are symbolic works of art.
"It's more than a fine piece of jewelry," said team owner Jim Irsay, who issued about 275 of the rings to players, coaches, other members of his organization and a few close acquaintances at a private ceremony Wednesday evening at the posh Indiana Roof Downtown. "It represents so much more."
There's the word "Faith'' on one shank, or side, of the ring. Faith "gives you the strength to have the perseverance to move forward even after many disappointments,'' Irsay explained.
"Faith," as it turns out, is also Peyton Manning's and Marvin Harrison's favorite George Michael song. They just can't believe he turned out to be gay. I mean, who saw that coming?
