Famous figures from Brookline
The owner of the New England Patriots and Gillette Stadium grew up in Brookline, graduating from its high school in 1959.
Vladimir Putin caused a bit of an international stir by walking off with his Super Bowl ring in 2005, and Bob Kraft defused the controversy by claiming he had given away the ring. Here's how Kraft's wife described it: "Robert never wears the ring, [but] sometimes, in certain instances, he'll have it in his pocket, he'll take it out. Putin put it on his finger, and his first comment was 'I could kill someone with this,' which was a little bit of an unusual comment, and then they took pictures, and Putin put it back in his pocket and walked out."
