Meggett Puts Super Bowl Ring on eBay

I'm not sure if Dave Meggett's Super Bowl ring doesn't fit anymore after Bill Romanowski broke his finger, or if he just wants some cash, but Meggett's Super Bowl ring is available. Opening bid is $40,000. No takers yet.

Hat tip: Ace Cowboy, who also has some good video of Jeremy Shockey celebrating what he wrongly thinks is a game-winning field goal.

Who wants to bet that Dan Marino will get the winning bid?

I think Scott Norwood should buy it. Then he should get a sex change and kidnap Dan Marino.

in case you're curious, the shockey clip is still funny the 25th time.

maybe the "gods of football" punishing the G-men for getting the extra home game from the NFL brass?

Yeah I agree it only gets funnier. I would love to see a network play that when he is doing one of his ridiculous first down celebration when they are down by 15 points.

Regarding the ring, good for him, who cares for such things anyway.

In fairness, he's gotten much better about that since his 2nd year. About all he might do now is get off the ground energetically and -- well, he doesn't really spike the ball. He just discards it with vigor.

As for the ring, I'd be in the market if I were fuggin' loaded. It is a little sad, though.
