(AP) – The Pittsburgh Steelers are getting their Super Bowl rings, four months after beating the Arizona Cardinals 27-23 for the franchise’s record sixth championship.

The rings will be presented at a private ceremony Tuesday night at Heinz Field. The ring’s design is being kept confidential until then.

Typically, each player gets a ring with his name and number on it. President Dan Rooney, retired running back Jerome Bettis and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger designed the team’s last Super Bowl ring.

On Monday, coach Mike Tomlin said he was excited about getting his ring, but that it will mark the end of the 2008 season. Now, he says, it’s time to focus on 2009.
