Russian President seizes Super Bowl Ring

It seems that Russian leaders find it hard to break old habits...

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft ... showed [Russian President] Putin the diamond-studded ring he got for the last Super Bowl win during a meeting of American businessmen. Then Putin left the room with the ring. A Kremlin official calls it a gift... [AP]
