Sweet, so the Fridge got his ring back and the kid got a couple jerseys. $8,500 worth of jersey material.
Sounds like the Fridge could use the $8,500 instead.
Last I saw of the fridge, he needed more than that in Dental work.
I give it 2 days before he sells the ring.
Thats the thing. As a parent I would have been ****** my son did this. His college education is worth more than a ring Fridge sold to make ends meet. I dont know the financial breakdown of the Fridge but it seems like he should have some cash and not have to sell his ring off. The kid is thoughtful but to me it was irresponsible.

Sad all around!
Heart-warming, I suppose, but wouldn't it have been smarter to perhaps just start with a letter writing campaign to the Bears organization? Surely they can shell out enough to get a former player his ring back? Or how about ask Bears fans to put up some cash?
That sounds like a better route.
Remarkably stupid IMO, but hey, it's his money.
The college money is really no big deal because this kid is clearly too stupid to go to college anyway.
What parent let's a 10 year old kid make decisions about money that he's going to wish he had 8 years down the line? I'm happy for the Fridge, but as many have said these, parents are just dumb...
I feel really bad for the Fridge. Put Guillan-Barre Syndrome on my Top 5 List of "Deseases I do Not Want to Have." I am also shocked the ring was not worth more than $8500. Great gesture on the part of the kid and his parents!
The family appears to be well off (rosebud mining company), so I don't think the money is much of a concern to them. Still seems like a silly thing to do.
