Sydney tied the knot with men's footie stud Dom Dwyer earlier this year and started forever off right by spending $20k with L.A. jeweler to the stars Big O to create a platinum and diamond monster.
The ring is14mm wide and features 97 baguillion and round brilliant diamonds that are actually cut to mimic the octagons on the side of a soccer ball.

Seattle Seahawks superstar Richard Sherman was stopped dead in his tracks in Vegas this week ... all thanks to a crazy talented street violinist in Vegas.

What does boxing superstar Keith Thurman have in common with Ron Burgundy? They both LOVE the flute!
With the 26-year-old preparing for his big NBC "Fight Night" bout against Robert Guerrero, Keith told "Premier Boxing Champions" he's getting his mind right with some flute sessions.
"I find it really relaxing," Thurman said.

Bottom line -- it's good to know J. Prince.

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee's insurance company is adding financial insult to injury -- refusing to pay up after a blown knee made him drop in the NFL draft ... so now he's suing.
According to the docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Lee paid $94k for a disability policy with Lloyd's of London during his final year at USC ... just in case he sustained an injury that affected his NFL future.
As bad luck would have it ... he did, and he fell to the second round of the draft.
