Sir John and the Knights of the Long Table

Eleven of us live here at beautiful Schamelot, and we have a small 20 acre farm of chickens, emus, two dogs, 13 or so cats and a cockateil named Sassafrass.

Once in a lifetime!

Last week a friend of mine, Bill C., came down to get one of our puppies (they're Schamelot Shepherds--German and Australian Shepherd mix). He brought his mother and father to help him pick. One of the kids noticed this huge diamond and ruby ring on Bill's father's hand and asked about it. "That's a Super Bowl Ring," he replied.

Seems Bill's dad, DOCTOR C. was the doctor for the Redskins during Super Bowl XXII, 1987: Redskins 42, Broncos 10. (Joe Theisman broke his leg in 1985 against the Giants when Lawrence Taylor jumped on it. It was the first home game his father covered.)

The kind doctor took off his ring and let all the boys try it on.

How many people do you know who have ever worn a Super Bowl Ring? Including the good doctor, I know 5!
