Blackhawks Receive their Championship Bling

Front view

Diamonds are the Blackhawks’ best friend.

On Sunday night the 2013 Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks were presented their custom championship rings designed by the jewelers at Jostens. This bling-a-ling has it all from white diamonds, yellow diamonds, emeralds and rubies. It’s really too bad I can’t ice skate.

The ring tells the story of the Blackhawks triumphant journey to a second Stanley Cup title in three years. Each ring is personalized with a championship team member’s name and respective number. Captain Toews shared his ring with the Blackhawks’ Instagram yesterday evening to give us fans a look-see at the new jewels.

One of my favorite parts is the inscription breaking down the different series of this particular post season. Just a little reminder of who they dominated and in how many games they did it.

The opposite side (not pictured) features five diamond-studded Stanley Cup trophies. Each trophy representing a Chicago championship title including 1934, 1938, 1961, 2010 and 2013.

Hopefully I can see one of these beastly beauties in person!

Phil Jackson’s Perfect Profile Picture

Legendary NBA coach Phil Jackson joined twitter this past week (@PhilJackson11) and chose a sick picture as his default photo. The man has won quite a bit a BLING throughout his career – he has to double up on fingers to wear them all at once!

598184-phil-jacksonThe picture displays 11 championship rings. Jackson won six coaching Michael Jordan and the Bulls in the 1990s and five more from 1999 to 2010 as coach of the Lakers. It seems he forgot about his 12th title which he earned as a member of the 1972-73 Knicks.

In less than 24 hours Jackson picked up over 140,000 followers – not too shabby for a days work.

I wish 140,000 people cared about what I had to say on the micro-blog – a girl can dream.
