Putin's a Patriot?

With the end of the cold war many years ago, I guess that the title could be somewhat correct in some way now that he has a Patriots Super Bowl ring. The NFL franchise that has won 3 of the last 4 Super Bowls is now handing out 'Patriot' rings to the Russians. Does that seem strange? I mean the symbol of the patriot can be seen as those who turned back the British in the Revolutionary War, and has morphed into a symbol of what Americans refer to themselves in wars since. Giving Putin a Patriot ring seems strange as he is not a 'Patriot' in symbol or as part of the NFL team, yet he now has a ring - it was a gift, but as a gesture of what? Next thing you know some Russian company will move in and buy up all the Mobile gas stations and call it Lukoil or something.
I suppose you can gift anything - Shannon Sharpe gifted one of his SB rings to his brother Sterling - is that the same kind of thing? No way. Some players have pawned the ring in the past to pay for things, but that seems different too. I just don't know what Putin did to deserve this 'gift' - does he even know what football is? In anycase the deed is done and now Putin has what many a player seeks - a Super Bowl ring.
