New Orleans Hall of Famer Rickey Jackson has something added to his San Francisco 49ers Super Bowl ring

Canton, Ohio - About two weeks after getting the ring he won as a member of the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XXIX, linebacker Rickey Jackson gave the ring to Metairie restaurateur Joe Impastato.

Former New Orleans Saints linebacker Rickey Jackson will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.
Impastato has worn it since.
But Jackson was wearing it Friday here as he met the news media at the Pro Football Hall of Fame, with a little additional engraving on the inside, courtesy of New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson, who'll present Jackson for enshrinement on Saturday.
"It's something Mr. Benson put in, about the Saints being world champs and (Jackson) in the Hall of Fame and stuff," Jackson said. "That's a nice thing they did.
"Two weeks after I got the ring, I brought it to Joe and let him keep it. I'm going to get me a Saints ring," Jackson said, laughing, "but until I get me a Saints ring, I'll wear this one."
A ceiling-to-floor oil portrait of Jackson, helmet on the back of his head, chewing his chin strap, with a towel in his belt that reads "City Champ" hangs in the lounge area of Impastato's restaurant.

Nice unknown little tidbit about Rickey and Joe.

Said Pope Benedict: "WOW ... that ring is bigger than mine!!!"
