New England legendary quarterback Tom Brady, has five Super Bowl rings; and now his mother has one too:

Tom Brady Mom's New England Patriots Super Bowl Ring

During the long off-season, Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who has spoken often of viewing Brady as a son, did a very class-act thing. He gave Tom Brady’s mom, Galynn, who finished her cancer treatments in April, a Super Bowl ring.

“He’s been so supportive of my family and certainly everything my mom went through and knowing firsthand how families deal with it,” Brady told ESPN on Friday. “He was always asking, ‘How’s mom doing? How is she feeling?’ We didn’t know up until the very end whether she was going to make it to the Super Bowl. She was a big inspiration for me, and RKK (Robert Kraft) knew it. It was a great surprise to all of us when the ring showed up. She deserves it.”

Superbowl 51 was played while Mrs. Brady was battling cancer, and Tom dedicated the game, in which his team overcame a mind boggling 28-3 deficit, to his mom. Tom Brady mentioned that the victory was very special since his mom was able to travel to Houston for the Super Bowl game.

Here at this championship ring blog, for better or worse, I tend to break down a lot of the rings we discuss – detailing size, weight, gold content and real vs. imitation diamonds. And don’t forget all the times I go into whether a championship ring is a player’s version or a front office version.

In this instance, who really cares? While I’m not a Patriots fan, and never will be (although I do love their Super Bowl rings and AFC championship rings), Kraft and his antics drive me crazy, but in this case, the owner did an amazing gesture. Great job by Kraft and the team!
