Took some screenshots of the ring they showed during the telecast.

14k yellow and white gold on a black onyx stone. Each has 95 diamonds totaling over 2 karats. The Comiskey family got one, as did Aparicio and Fisk.

Obviously, the "ice" is very nice. But, it looks like an old lady's ring, being oval an all. I think more of a square ring would have looked better.

Eh, you're right, but what can you expect from the chairmans wife?

I disagree - I think it looks fine.

The shape of it reminds me of DeNiro's ring in Angel Heart.

It's very distinct. Love the black! I agree the oval isn't a great shape, but it's hard to work around that elongated S-o-x logo if you want it packed with ice.

Some guy at the game tried to buy mine, but I wouldn't budge.

Someone asked to buy my ring no more than 5 seconds after I got it, and I can see why for how much they're going for on that eBay auction.

"What about my ring?"

:KW
"Jose, I tracked your ring on the DHL website. It shows that the delivery person made an errant throw upon delivery, and your ring wound up getting ruined after landing in your neighbor's yard and getting eaten by a coyote."

:maggs
"Where's mine?"

:KW
"I put Ozzie in charge of sending your ring, Magglio. You didn't get it? You know, it's funny. I could have sworn I saw Ozzie in the clubhouse putting one of those rings in the microwave and turning it on full power."

How in the world do they fit "PIERZYNSKI" or "HERMANSON" on the ring? I guess the letters must become smaller. And I wonder if Frank's ring just says "DH" at the bottom. Or if Timo's says "LF-RF-1B".

At first, I thought, "This ring design looks kinda plain (especially compared to other rings from the past)." But then I remembered a TV interview Jerry did before the presentation. He said that he didn't want this ring to look like a "gaudy, high school graduation ring". So with that in mind, I figure this design is okay.

Think about it like this...no matter what the ring looks like, the most important thing is that the S-O-X logo is on the front of it, and no other team was presented with championship rings this season. And even if the Sox don't win another Series in our lifetime (God forbid), this ring with NEVER change. Decades from now, people will still see the diamond-encrusted S-O-X logo for the 2005 World Series.

Besides...when the Sox do win it again, there'll be another design. We'll see how creative Mrs. Reinsdorf gets then.
