    "In silk black-and-gold pajamas, velvety black robe and slippers, James Henry Smith is at rest.
    His feet are crossed, his pack of cigarettes and a beer by his side. Steelers highlights are playing on a high-definition TV screen nearby. With the TV remote in his hand, leaning back in his recliner, a Steelers blanket across his legs, it's like a game-day Sunday.
    Except that it's not.
    It was last night at Samuel E. Coston Funeral Home in Lincoln-Lemington, and family and friends were filing in to pay their final respects to Smith, whom they called one of the biggest Steelers fans in the universe."

    Hey, my dad was buried in his Crimson Tide shirt and cap. It's what he wanted (People from Alabama are like that, you just have to accept them and move on past it) and that's what we did. I'm sure he's somewhere in the afterlife giving Auburn fans a hard time even as we speak.

    Now personally I always wanted to be cremated and then have my ashes handloaded into a whole bunch of ammo. I don't know why, I just thought it would be cool.

    I can't help but say that it don't make me hate the Steelers any less.

    That's right! Spread the love around. If I gotta go then I'm taking some fools with me.

    Or you could have your ashes spread out at the 50 yard line of Reliant Stadium.

    This is nothing. Larry Hagman (JR in "Dallas") specifies in his will that he is to be cremated. His ashes will be spread over a wheat field, and one year later, the wheat will be harvested, processed, baked into a cake, and served at a party to his closest friends and family to commemorate his life.

    I can't make this stuff up; google it yerself!
