Who did it?

Uh oh! Someone broke into Ernest Byner's home near Ashburn, Va., in overpriced Loudoun County, which is about 40 miles west of DC. Above is a picture of his Super Bowl replica ring that was stolen. I couldn't find a photo of him with the Deadskins, and I can understand that.

Here's the scoop:

Loudoun County, Virginia- A former Washington Redskins running back had several items stolen from his Ashburn home in July and Loudoun Sheriff’s Investigators are searching for a Super Bowl ring replica among other items. Sometime during the first week of July a juvenile male was watching the house of former NFL player Earnest Byner. During this time another juvenile male and an adult male entered the home and removed property from the house. Since the discovery of the larceny some of the property has been returned to Mr. Byner. One of the items still missing is a pendant that features a replica of the top of a 1992 Super Bowl ring. Other missing items include several collectible figurines, a pair of diamond ear rings, a Rolex watch, a gold ring with a cross and a tennis bracelet. Earnest Byner now serves as the running backs coach for the Redskins. Byner played for the Redskins from 1989-1993 and played a key role in the team’s 1992 Super Bowl XXVI victory. Anyone with information about the whereabouts of this ring is encouraged to call Investigator D. Orr of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division at 703-777-0475. If the caller wishes to remain anonymous they are asked to call Loudoun County Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919.

My question is who the hell keeps a replica Super Bowl ring? What the heck is a replica Super Bowl ring? Where's the real one? Or is the sheriff's office only calling it a replica ring because they want the robber to get mad? Do players get replica rings before the new ones are made? Was it necessary for the sheriff's office to note his football accomplishments? I bet these "county finest" are in hog heaven right now working with this guy.

It doesn't matter the same sheriff's office has an unsolved murder of a 14-year-old girl--one of several unsolved murders. They will drop all cases to help Ernest Byner so they can get their free football tickets.

You watch, the Washington Post will be all over this. All media outlets will jump on this one. Well, I am first to report it. Here you go.

Cowboys fans, I urge you to call "investigator Orr" and let him know we don't give a crap about this man's stuff. In fact, we urge the robber to hand over the materials so we can burn them and celebrate. The replica ring is worth $5 and the other jewerly items are pure luxury Byner can do without.

And let's not forget this, Byner:

Hold on to the ball!!! You could have had 2 super bowl rings!
