Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Vladimir Putin’s New York Times op-ed wasn’t intended to assert superiority over President Barack Obama, but instead “an excuse to show off his Super Bowl ring.” Reid’s quip was a reference to the Russian president’s ownership of a Super Bowl ring from the New England Patriots’ NFL title. Team owner Robert Kraft accused Putin of stealing the ring, which Putin denied. Later Kraft said the ring was a gift.
