It's been a long time since any of my teams won a championship. As a Cubs fan, 2016 was a big year, but at the time, funds were limited, so all I got was a lousy (but worth the wait) t-shirt and hat.

What I wouldn't give to have one of those rings, though. It would be quite the conversation piece.
Thankfully, though, another local team recently won a championship - The Growlers - and you can feel like a champion along with them, and get your own ring!

Now, granted, it's not the bejeweled, real deal. Those are reserved for the staff and team. And we got a good look at them receiving their championship rings a little while back.

They're pretty amazing looking, and a reminder that, even when you have low points - like the entire second half of the Growlers 2022 season - you can still come back in the end and win the whole thing. So at the very least, use it as inspiration in your day-to-day life.

Despite it not being the truly jeweled ring, it looks the part, and you can say you were there for the most Unlikely of Seasons in all of baseball.

For those who missed it, the Growlers snuck into the playoffs after placing first in the first half of the season. In the Northwoods League, that's an automatic slot in the postseason. They then went on a skid for the ages, falling to near-last in the league.

But the epic run against some of the toughest teams in the league left them triumphant.

If you'd like your own Championship ring to celebrate with the Growlers, you can find it in their official merch store.
