I guess I am in the minority but I have always found these championship rings to be tacky, gaudy awful.

No, you are exactly right.. which makes them perfect...

Not to mention the rings have been awarded for more than 60 years...which also makes them tradition.

Tacky, gaudy AWESOME!

They are supposed to be larger than life and outrageous.  They are supposed to be something you really wouldn't / couldn't wear all the time.

Don't compare it to a ring you'd buy at People's: compare it to the other GC rings over the years from other teams.  I think WFC has been nailing these designs.

The 2019 ring didn't have much to it.

This one looks pretty incredible, imo.
My wife is amazing!

SO awesome that the Blue Bomber organization decided to give the season ticket holders a replica rings !!
I was like a child at Christmas on Saturday when I picked up mine. You couldn't get the smile off my face.

Sorry ... I mean SUNDAY !!

COOL BEANS !

Someone posted a picture of the display case they put thier ring in... they used the Milt Stegal display we got after IGF opened with the old turf in it, saying

Tatum Lee@TatumLee19
So instead of ordering a case I will utilize one instead and let @MiltStegallTSN
keep an eye on it for me


To which I replied:

Ummm... that's just cruel... poor Milt never got a ring... and now you're going to make him "keep an eye on" yours?

Aardvark -- read the room, man.

I have no idea what you mean....

I posted a humourous tweet that I made about the irony of making "Milt" watch over a GC ring (which he never had the opportunity to win), and then I was shocked/amused when the actual Milt Stegall "liked" the tweet.

Why do I need to "read the room, man"?

Pretend that I'm not that smart and explain it to me... (you seem to be able to do the former every post I make)

Went to get my rings this afternoon. Got home with my package and opened it up and there was 4 rings, and a deluxe fan ring top pendant. Are they also handing out pendants?
