She Finally Scores!


M

rs. Noteboom of Doylestown, Pa. was a staunch Phila. Eagles fan. As far as she cared, they, the Eagles, were the ONLY team in the NFL. An avid fan to say the least. Now coming from Philly I have witnessed some really unbelievable things over the years in our stadiums during football and baseball and hockey games. However, this may have to rank right up there with the failure of ParachuteMan to descend center field during a Phillies game.

Last Sunday's game between the Eagles and the Green Bay Packers was a normal, run of the mill football game, with this one exception. Enter Christopher Noteboom of Tempe, Arizona...

While the game was in play, Chris ran across the field, dodging players... all the time spreading a bag of ashes onto the playing field. Yes, it was Mrs. Noteboom. As a fitting memorial to his mother, Noteboom ran across the field, sprinkling her ashes as he ran. As he reached the 30-yard line, he dropped to his knees, made the sign of the cross and laid down on his stomach. Security personnel reached him moments later and he offered no resistance as he was escorted from the field. Upon arrest he stated, "I know that the last handful of ashes I had are laying on the field, and will never be taken away. She'll always be part of Lincoln Financial Field and of the Eagles."

"It's bizarre, but we have a zero tolerance for people who run on the field," Police Inspector William Colarulo said. "We especially have a zero tolerance for people who run onto the field and dump an unknown substance in a stadium full of people."

Eagles spokeswoman Bonnie Grant said the team has declined previous requests to spread ashes on the field.

Observations and Questions
Okee dokee... you may not desire cremation for yourself, but let's play pretend. Let's assume you are going to be cremated... and you wanted your ashes spread somewhere... where would it be and why?
