Funerals: An Update
August 29, 2011 § 1 Comment
A few days ago, I posted an abridged list of various things said to me at funerals. Some were funny, some were troubling, and some were downright macabre.
In memory of that post (as if it were dead and subject to a funeral), click on this link to an ESPN.com article by Pat Forde. Scroll about 6 inches down until you see the subheading “Roy Miracle.” You’ll see a picture next to it. Click on the picture (or click here if you are too lazy to check out the article).
Here is part of what Pat Forde said about Mr. Miracle’s last act as an Ohio State fan.
The deceased 80-year-old Ohio State fan’s final act above ground was to be the letter “I” in this macabre “O-H-I-O” cheer from Roy’s funeral (see photo). According to media reports, this was the brainstorm of Miracle’s daughter, Juli. Her mother and brother were creeped out enough that they refused to participate, so Juli Miracle recruited some other family members to fill out the spelling bee.
Honestly, you can’t make this stuff up.
