Yankees Ready for Rings

The Yankees will be opening up Yankee Stadium for the 2010 season and along with their first home game, the players will also be getting their 2009 World Series rings. Now I don't know about you, but for me looking back at previous champions World Series rings is pretty cool.

I would have to say that the 1996 ring would be the best of the Yankee rings (so far). 1998 is a close second because well, it's hard to turn down a ring that says BEST EVER on it.

It's fitting that Pettitte will start the game. Not only because it's ring number five for him, but winning every clincher last year sort of earned him the right to be the guy toeing the rubber when he gets that colossal ring.

Can you clue us in on what the apparently Spanish words say on the side of the 1996 and 1998 rings?

I'm pretty sure those are just names. If you get a ring they stick your name on the side. They might be scouts, guys from the clubhouse or front office guys.

Oh, I get it. I might have put two and two together if it said Jeter or Williams on the side. Der!
