John Macaulay's Super Bowl ring was reportedly lost and then found inside the Mineta San Jose International Airport's men's room last Tuesday.

To be more precise, the gold and diamond-encrusted ring was found at the airport's Terminal B restroom, reports the Silicon Valley Mercury News' Sal Pizzaro. Pizzaro says an airport employee by the name of Arra Daquina found the ring and quoted her as saying as not knowing what it was. 

"I didn't know what it was, but it was big and heavy."

Macaulay's name was engraved on the ring's side. He came back to look for his missing ring within minutes of losing it. Pizzaro notes Macaulay was in awe of how quickly he was able to get his Super Bowl ring back. 

Macaulay, now a doctor and tech professional, was a center for the San Francisco 49ers during Super Bowl XIX in 1984. They defeated the Miami Dolphins 38-16 to secure their second of five Super Bowl titles.  

The 54-year-old Stanford alumnus reportedly played in only three games for the 49ers but luckily, it coincided with their Super Bowl season 29 years ago. Macauley was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the 11th round of the 1982 NFL Draft (294th overall).
