Grey Area: UPDATE

Bomber DB Jovon Johnson's 2007 Grey Cup ring — the one he picked up with the Saskatchewan Roughriders — has surfaced in an  online auction.

According to the item description, the ring has 70 diamonds total,

with the Riders logo on the face, the name "Johnson 28' on one side

and the championship year on the other.

 Here's more from the write-up:

 "Green Pride is on full display all over this massive and mesmerizing

diamond and gold creation presented to a player on the 2007 Grey Cup

champion Saskatchewan Roughriders. Rare indeed is the opportunity to

bid on a championship ring of such recent vintage and this one will

have particular appeal to those football fanatics on the Canadian

prairies who eat, sleep and dream in Roughriders green."

 That sounds nice, doesn't it?

 Johnson is not the one selling the ring, though. He sent a note to me

tonight and said he parted ways with the jewelry after the title.

Earlier in the day, I wrote that it was Johnson who was hocking the

bobble. That was incorrect, so I gassed that post and replaced it with

this update. Someone else is selling the ring.

 In case you're wondering, it looks like four grand will get you a

piece of CFL championship history. It is early in the auction, though.
