Where, Oh Where??

After the Iron Bowl on Saturday, which was the greatest college football game every played, tens of thousands of fans, ran onto the field at Jordan-Hare stadium to celebrate Auburn’s amazing win.

When the dust settled, no pun intended, it was discovered that someone has spread the ashes of a loved one on the field.


Yep, there it is.

I thought at first, how stupid is this.

Then it hit me, how brilliant.

Sports is so much of our lives, if we stopped to think about it for more than 5 seconds,  we would realize this.

I heard from someone on my radio show on Tuesday (102.5 The Game) about how he spread his father’s ashes at Neyland Stadium, where they had shared so many great moments.

I was asked, where would I like my ashes spread and what sports venue would I choose.

I thought long and hard and it hit me.

Probably at my high school, McGavock, on the football field.


Every time I think of that that football field, I smile.

Every single time.

After a quick google search, you will see that a lot of people have spread their ashes of loves ones at many sports arenas, stadiums, etc, for a long time.

And you know, why not?

If you had to pick a place, where would it be?

    I’d get mine spread on the ice at Bridgestone, but I don’t think ice and ashes mix all that great.

    I’ve already instructed my husband to spread my ashes on the start/finish line at each of the tracks where I’ve attended NASCAR races.
