Bad week to be a Philadelphia championship ring.
Last week we told you about Tommy McDonald's 1960 NFL Championship ring, which may be in a men's room at the King of Prussia Mall. Now, according KomoNews.com, we learn that Kyle Kendrick's 2008 World Series ring was stolen from his home on Washington.
Police say the thieves busted a door lock and spent considerable time in the home, taking home electronics and other valuables sometime during the weekend of March 26.
Among the items stolen aside from Kendrick's 2008 World Series ring included a framed, signed jersey by Ken Griffey Jr., and several personal baseball gloves and bats.
This sucks for Kyle. It also marks the third 2008 World Series ring that has been stolen. In 2009, the Phillies Director of Publicity, John Brazer, had his ring stolen by a janitor. He told police he left it in the bathroom of the executive offices at CBP (keep rings out of the shitter!). Earlier that same year, Adam Eaton stole a ring when he accepted the $10k trinket during an on-field ceremony.
There is no truth to the rumor which says Kendrick's ring wasn't stolen, rather… he was simply having trouble locating it. No truth to that, folks.
Wish Kyle the best in finding his ring.
