    Son Spreads Mom's Ashes On Field At Eagles' Game In Tribute

    http://kyw.com/topstories/local_story_331233514.html

    (CBS 3) PHILADELPHIA A Eagles fan was charged with defiant trespass after running onto the field during Sunday's game agains the Packers and spreading his dead mother's ashes around.

    The fan, whose name was not released, said his mother was a die-hard Eagles fan but didn't have a chance to go to an Eagles game before she died, police said.

    Players from both teams looked on as the man ran up the middle of the field, waving a plastic bag in the air as the ashes flew out. He eventually dropped to his knees, genuflected, and was then arrested.

    It was unclear whether the man was a season ticket holder or if the Eagles would take any action against him.
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    I'd be surprised if they don't make an example of him. That bag could have been filled with something hazardous.

    I told my girlfriend that if/when we get married, and I die, she has to dump my ashes onto the warning track at GAB.
    Pray for Rain.

    I had a friend in Chicago who wanted her ashes spread at old Comiskey. The Sox said no, but her son managed to do it anyway (long story). Of course now she is scattered under a parking lot.

    I've seen a few fly balls go there to die.

    The wife and I were on a walk once and a couple was standing on a hill that overlooks the local Bird sancuary (what's that? you don't have one in your neighborhood? too bad) anyway... they had this bag of something and they threw it in the air in hopes that it blew down the hill... it didn't, it blew back and into our face.

    Just ducky.

    Don't you hate when someone gets in your face like that?

    Yeah, that's the kind of remembrance ceremony that can make even total strangers get choked up.
