It’s only been nine days since the New England Patriots won Super Bowl LIII, but New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick wasted no time getting the name of his boat updated.

A few years ago Belichick bought a fishing boat. At the time, he named it “V Rings,” to reflect the five Super Bowl rings he’d won — two as a defensive coordinator with the New York Giants and three as head coach in New England.

But in the years since getting her, Belichick and the Patriots have won three more Super Bowls, including this month against the Los Angeles Rams.

And on Monday in Jupiter, Florida, where Belichick has an offseason home (he also has a property on Nantucket, off the Massachusetts coast), a couple of people noticed that the coach had already made sure his boat got a fresh new paint job.

And now: VIII Rings.
