If assists were a football statistic, former 49er John Macaulay owes one -- a big one -- to the entire team at Mineta San Jose International Airport.
A heavy ring was discovered in the bathroom at the airport's Terminal B by a Starbucks employee recently, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
And not just any ring -- a Super Bowl ring, according to reports.
The Starbucks employee turned in the ring to the Lost and Found department, which was able to identify its owner -- John Macaulay, a former offensive lineman who is now a doctor -- by his name engraved on the side, the newspaper reported.
Macaulay earned the ring as a member of the 1984 Super Bowl team.
Macaulay quickly realized his ring was lost -- and just as quickly, he recovered it from the employees. He was in "awe" of the rapid turnaround, the newspaper reported.
