The Indianapolis Colts were one of the few NFL teams to allow fans into the stadium on Sunday, capping the Lucas Oil Stadium attendance at 2,500 people. And while all those fans were treated to a 28-11 Colts win over the Vikings, just one person left the stadium with Darius Leonard’s wedding ring.
And … it wasn’t Darius Leonard.
After the Colts finished up their win, Leonard took off his gloves and handed them to a young fan in the stands. The moment had to have been special for that fan, but it took quite the surprising turn when he found Leonard’s wedding ring in one of the gloves.
The ring inadvertently was removed while he handed the gloves to the young fan, and Leonard didn’t realize it at the time.
Thankfully, an effort on Twitter got Leonard’s attention. When Bleacher Report’s Tyler Brooke tweeted that his step-nephew had the ring, Leonard responded with laughing emojis, “I need that.”
Losing that wedding ring must have been stressful for Leonard, so it’s great that he was able to get it back.
He’ll be able to laugh that story off now.
