Authorities say burglars made off with two Super Bowl rings from the Las Vegas-area home of former San Francisco 49ers kicker Mike Cofer.

Now that the NFL's 2013 calendar year has begun, here's what fans have to look forward to.

Cofer told Henderson police he was watching his son's high school baseball game when the break-in occurred Thursday at his four-bedroom home.

"When I saw the front door bashed in, I pretty much knew what was going on," Cofer told FOX5 news station in Las Vegas.

Cofer's ex-wife, Lisa Cofer, told the Las Vegas Sun the thieves also took a coin collection, an Xbox game console and several games. She says they left a diamond ring.

Cofer was clearly upset about his loss, telling FOX5, "Something that you cherish, something that you feel proud of, put a lot of hard work into, and someone thinks they deserve it more than you do."

Lisa Cofer didn't immediately respond Monday to a message from The Associated Press.

Mike Cofer played eight seasons in the NFL, and was on the 49ers team that won the Super Bowl in 1988 and in 1990.

"They can take a ring or a watch or whatever, but they weren't on the field that night, so they'll never be able to take that memory," Cofer told FOX5.

He moved to southern Nevada in 2001, and is an assistant high school football coach.

"It's all under investigation," Henderson police spokesman Keith Paul told CSNBayArea.com. "No suspects have been arrested, and the rings and other items have not been recovered."
