Fun press box story in which I got to wear a 49ers Super Bowl ring

Super Bowl XXIX ring!

Cool story from work today. Former 49ers radio man Joe Starkey sat next to me in the press box. I noticed he was wearing his Super Bowl XXIX (my favorite Super Bowl) ring and I asked him about it.

He took it off and let me see it (and it didn’t fit my finger). I asked him if he has any other ones. He told me that he wish he did. But when he asked Carmen Policy after Super Bowl XXIX about getting a ring, Policy said he could.

Starkey then said he asked Policy why they didn’t allow radio guys to get Super Bowl rings from past Super Bowls.

“You never asked!” Policy replied.

Starkey laughed it off, saying he really wished he did ask for the other two Super Bowl rings of the late `80s. But one is still pretty cool. I wish I had one.
