The Portland Thorns finally received their championship rings last night at a team dinner. Merritt Paulson tweeted some images from the event, where everybody looked very nice and Mark Parsons was having a conversation with extreme focus.

Hayley Raso tweeted a photo showing exactly how big the ring is (or perhaps how small Raso is).
Well, this is the most amazing ring I’ve ever seen @ThornsFC pic.twitter.com/A2sfpt9MhI— Hayley Raso (@HayleyRaso) May 24, 2018
This morning, the full story behind the rings was published, revealing that the Christine Sinclair-assisted design does, in fact, include an Ice Bear, rendered on the side between the player’s name and number. The opposite side shows a pair of stars and the date of the championship match, and the inside of the ring reads “BUILD A BONFIRE.”
You can see some more photos over at the Thorns website.
