Christian Fauria loses (and finds) his Super Bowl rings
|07.22.14 at 9:02 pm ET|
It was revealed on Tuesday’s edition of Middays with MFB that Christian Fauria is almost irresponsibly casual about being the owner of two Super Bowl rings.
Fauria, who won Super Bowl XXXVIII and XXXIX with the Patriots, admitted Tuesday that he regularly misplaces his prized rings and didn’t know where they were for months until finding them Tuesday in a backpack with a broken zipper.
“It’s happened before, and whenever this happens I know that nobody stole them,” Fauria said. “I know that they’re somewhere in the house and it’s going to be a matter of time before I accidentally bump into them, and sure enough, there they are.”
Fauria said that he has a case for the rings, but that he keeps his watches in that case. The Super Bowl rings had been in an old backpack he brings to work, with Fauria saying they were there since January at the earliest. They were in a pouch where he keeps his pens and pencils, but didn’t realize it until Tuesday.
“I didn’t lose them; I just wasn’t sure where they were,” he said.
With his co-hosts giving him grief for keeping something so important in an old backpack, Fauria said he likes to have the rings with him.
“You never know when you’re going to need a Super Bowl ring,” he joked. “Maybe you can’t get into a restaurant, maybe you’ve to get into a club, maybe you’ve got to talk your way out of a ticket. You pull out a Super Bowl ring, you get into the club, you get the first table, you get out of the ticket.”
Replied Lou Merloni: “So you bring a backpack to the club a lot?”
