City 'till I die.: But what happens after that? Interesting article in The Times about the practice of scattering the ashes of departed fans at the ground of their beloved team and some of the complications involved. Does this happen in other sports? Would you do it and if so where? (Times Registration may be required).

For the record, I've yet to decide between being interred at Birmingham City's ground or getting the landlord of my local to put my urn on a shelf in the bar.

we build new stadiums like every 10 years in the would suck to be scattered at RFK stadium thinking you'd foever be trampled by the Burgundy and Gold...only to receive the cigarette butts of 50,000 brittney spears fans instead.

squealy, how many urns are already on that shelf, and do you think there'll still be space when your day arrives?

I thought these days most pitches got dug up and replaced a couple of times a year? While we are on the subject of urns and bars, can I recommend that everybody gets hold of a copy of Last Orders as fast as they can? It's one of the warmest and most moving films I have seen in yonks.

None so far bill. I'm aiming to start a trend. It will hopefully be a lasting and fitting memorial to my life of drunken debauchery.
