06:26 PM ET 12.12 | When Warren Sapp filed for bankruptcy earlier in the year, Buccaneers fans everywhere were enraged that their former favorite player had lost his Super Bowl ring from the 2002 season. We all got over it and forgot that Sapp lost such a prized possession until he showed up for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 10 year Super Bowl reunion last Sunday - and his ring was miraculously found in time for the event. All in all, no one's really going to care about this for long. But it is an interesting footnote to a story that had some people scratching their heads a few months ago when Sapp reported the item missing - turns out the thing was in the couch with the remote the whole time. Isn't that just the darndest thing?

Why would this journalist in low down fashion blow the man up like this? What a loser journalist that needs to get a life.

Hope he remembered to tell the insurance company....."hey. I found it"

And that he updates his bankruptcy filing to list this newly found asset.

He has the right name because he is a Sapp. Why any TV network would employ idiot is beyond me

"All in all, no one's really going to care about this for long"

Yeah, tell that to the Bankruptcy Trustee.

The bigger question is whether Sapp perjured himself by lying to the Bankruptcy Court about the "missing" ring.

Sentimental or personal items like that might be exempt from liquidation.

I don't know what state he filed in. Some states have their own set of exemptions and you can choose between the federal exexmptions and the state. The value of the ring is too high to qualify for any federal exemption. I can only speak to NYS law, but it wouldn't qualify if he selected the NY exemptions, either.

Well when he testified at the time it was missing.Then later, miraculously, he found it.No perjury there.

If Sapp lied about the ring on his petition, it is perjury.

If he really lost it and listed it on his petition as "missing" and later found it, it is not perjury.

You astutely note that even if it was perjury, it would be awfully hard to prove.
