Super ending as man recovers $20G Pats ring

Lou Schorr initially thought the ring sitting on the sink in a restroom at the Providence Place Mall Saturday evening was a worthless and bulky piece of junk jewelry.

When Schorr, 53, of Waltham, showed the ring to his friends, they thought it was a worthless and bulky piece of junk jewelry.

But when he went to the New England Patroits Web site, he discovered he had found Super Bowl bling with 104 glittery diamonds, a value of over $20,000. The players received their rings 11 days ago.

``I knew I had to return it to its owner,'' he said.

Etched on the ring was the name of rookie linebacker Tully Banta-Cain. He told Providence police Saturday he took it off to wash his hands and when he returned 15 minutes later it was gone. Police told him they would investigate. Banta-Cain went to church Sunday and prayed.

Meanwhile, Schorr was showing the ring to two kids wearing Patriots jerseys at a restaurant in Shrewsbury. ``They were amazed,'' Schorr said.

Schorr, a sales representative in Canton, took the ring to work Monday and called the Pats. Banta-Cain picked up his ring in person and promised Schorr a seat at the season opener.

For a 20K ring I'd give the guy seasons tickets. That was reallly good of him to give it back though, if I were him I'd keep it and pretend that I was a great football player until my knee injury that forced me to stop playing.

that is one lucky guy, if he left it there its not considered stealing.

Yea thats a bit tight. You would have thought he would get a better reward for his honesty.

I would have most prob kept it or sold it...
