Mike McCarthy made a bold decision on the eve of Super Bowl XLV.
The coach took his Green Bay players ring shopping.
It’s an enduring memory for former Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk, one that hasn’t faded over the past nine years.
“It’s something that I use now when I give speeches to groups and corporations,” said Hawk, who retired three years ago Tuesday. “The night before the Super Bowl, after he had gotten done speaking to us, we opened the doors, go out there, and there’s 20 people from Jostens there. We all got fitted for Super Bowl rings right there.”
