There’s all kinds of bizarre Super Bowl stories swirling after the big game every year because, well, it’s big. On top of Joe Flacco heading to Disney World, and safety Bernard Pollard saying he played with six broken ribs, there was also some bizarre news from the NFL Champions the day after their Super Bowl victory.
The team’s most prized possession after winning the game, the Lombardi Trophy, disappeared on Sunday night and wasn’t returned to the team until just before Ravens coach John Harbaugh’s press conference on Monday.
As he walked up to the stage with the trophy in his hands, Harbaugh said, “We haven’t seen this since last night. We thought we’d lost it.”
Harbaugh then thanked whomever returned the trophy to him, then began the press conference. It’s still a mystery how the team managed to lose a 22 inch trophy within hours of receiving it, but we do know that it “did not make it” to Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti’s postgame party.
It’s not quite as a story as the NHL’s Stanley Cup has every season, but it still left us with some intrigue. That’s certainly one piece of hardware the Ravens organization might want to keep a firm grip on from here on out.
