PITTSBURGH, June 10 (UPI) -- Members of the 2009 Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers received their rings for the team's sixth NFL title, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said.

The rings were given during a private team ceremony at East Club Lounge at Heinz Field Tuesday while the Pittsburgh Penguins were beating the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 in Game 6 of the NHL's Stanley Cup Finals.

Former all-pro defensive tackle Joe Greene, one of five club employees who have earned six Super Bowl rings, and former linebacker Larry Foote attended the event.

"It is a beautiful ring," Greene said about the 3.7-ounce, 3.61-carat ring, which contains 63 diamonds. "You have six kids, you love them all equally. There is no best."

"Everybody's in awe right now," said backup quarterback Charlie Batch. "When everybody opened his box, it was like 'Wow!' This is the defining moment -- to put an exclamation point on last season. It signifies everything we accomplished last season."
