New York, NY — In an attempt to keep up with the fashion trends of professional athletes, the NFL is holding meetings to discuss adding a separate fashion award for all Super Bowl winners. The current fashion award given to all Super Bowl winners is a large, extremely stylish ring fashioned after the high school class rings that many young men and women purchase while in high school. Although the beauty of the high school rings are undeniable, most high schoolers choose not to wear them again after graduation. This is probably for fear of losing or damaging the ring. A young man could certainly up his game with the ladies by wearing his class ring, but the risk of something happening to it outweighs the benefits. However, this is not the case for professional athletes.
“Although cash awards are nice, what we really want is something pretty to show the world that we were victorious in battle” said Edmond Flackins, a former Linebacker that played for two Super Bowl winning teams. “My teammates and I wear our rings everywhere, but often wish we had some matching accessories to go along with the rings. Some guys want a belt buckle, but the more discerning guys would like a nice brooch.”
NFL brass have been receptive about the idea and have been taking meetings with some of the hottest designers in New York, Paris, and Milan. However, a spokesman for the NFL cautioned fans and players to not get too excited, as no new designs will be considered until the next fall (fashion) season.
