It’s Super Bowl Sunday. The global sports and media world turn their attention to New Orleans, Louisiana for Super Bowl XVLII between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. Apart from the coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy, every NFL owner, coach, athlete, trainer, and all team personnel have one goal in mind entering the season, win a Super Bowl Championship.

The game of football has seen a few changes through the course of NFL history, from the size and speed of its players, the equipment used, even the hefty modern day contracts. The size of the NFL Championship rings have also gotten bigger, heavier and loaded with more diamonds as time goes on. Minnesota-based jeweler Jostens continues its passion for All-Pro, championship jewelry as we take a look at the evolution of the Super Bowl ring. Have a great #SB47 party!

You have to think that the locked-out NFL refs are relishing the moment. As the guys on the field who are paid to be hated by both teams and the fans, they are finally missed and appreciated. 

While the real refs are smiling, the rest of the football-loving world cringes. And what would a good collective cringe be without some genius social media responses? 

Amongst the howls, none stand out as loudly as those from the players. Brandon Spikes and T.J. Lang dropped enough F-bombs in their tweets to make Eddie Murphy blush. According to TechCrunch there were over 1-million zebra bashing tweets during the much criticized final play of the Packers-Seahawks game. T.J. Lang’s ref-roast generated 150-thousand re-tweets. #Touchception
