Gallery: Diamonds are a football player’s best friend — They're oversized, gobsmackingly expensive and covered diamonds. If any one object epitomizes the over-the-top grandeur of the National Football League, it's the Super Bowl ring. The trinkets - if you can call them that - cost thousands to make; the New England Patriots Super Bowl XXXIX rings were valued at around $33,000 a piece, according to Bleacher Report.

Foodie Feature: Your Buffalo wings are boring. Do this instead. — Reuters has scoured Phoenix for the area's best football food, with a twist. Because it's not just the Super Bowl of football - it's also the Super Bowl of eating. Today's entry: Sweet & Sour Duck Legs on Pineapple Slaw from Chef Wade's Bistro on Wheels. Sure, Buffalo chicken wings are good.

The NFL looks beyond its crisis-filled year — If there's an elephant in this room, it's not nearly as big as the football on the corner of East Washington and North Central in Phoenix, Arizona. Towering above giggling fans on the Monday before Super Bowl XLIX, the temporary monument attracted diehards, locals and people who don't mind making a week-long vacation out of a four-hour game.

Facebook empire? — A million dollars isn't cool. Know what is cool? Two hundred billion dollars. Guys, we've created a monster: Facebook now says that it generated $227 billion worth of economic impact worldwide last year. Is that statistic not staggering enough for you?

Pizza delivery? Head to customs. — One can only assume that Domino's isn't widely available in Zurich. An effort to ship cheap pies into Switzerland from Germany fails. The plan would have allowed German pizza delivery drivers to eschew customs. It's particularly disappointing for German pizza makers, who undoubtedly hoped to take advantage of Swiss munchies with some sort of "nein-nein-nein" deal.

A birthday without fireworks — Happy birthday to you? Maybe not. Today is North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's birthday. We think. He might be 32. Or he might not be. Regardless, the reclusive Kim isn't celebrating (maybe because he feels like a plastic bag?), Reuters is reporting, in stark contrast to last year when former NBA star Dennis Rodman sang him "Happy Birthday."

The old news that’s new — A silver plate made by Paul Revere, a centuries-old newspaper and a 1652 shilling: these are among the historical gems uncovered from a 220-year-old time capsule that's just been unearthed in Boston. Custodians unpacked the items, ranging from a bronze medal with George Washington's likeness to colonial records, from a 10-pound brass box buried beneath the state house, Reuters reported.

Fashion that saves lives? — Better up your data plan: Researchers have developed a shirt that can communicate with you through your smartphone (bear with us, this isn't nearly as ridiculous as it sounds). The ECG shirt actually monitors its wearer's heart activity, according to a Reuters report, alerting users to any possible distress or abnormalities via mobile devices.

Your blue suede shoes go in the overhead bin — Wanted: A wealthy Elvis Presley enthusiast with millions to spare on a couple of airplanes that don't fly. It's now or never for one lucky buyer, with two private jets customized by the King himself expected to fetch as much as $15 million at auction, Reuters is reporting.

All you need is love - and some legal counsel — Goin' to the chapel... somewhere? The Supreme Court declined to extend a stay on Florida's state same-sex marriage ban earlier this month, but confusion apparently reigns over where same-sex unions can legally take place in the state, Reuters is reporting.
