It was only a matter of time. We now have the OFFICIAL CASKET of MLB

Major League Baseball and Eternal Image Inc., a designer of caskets and urns, have reached a licensing agreement that will allow Eternal Image to decorate its products with the names and logos of any of the 30 major league teams, the company said in a statement.

The new products will be available in 2007. Caskets with major league logos are expected to sell for $3,000 to $3,500, Mytych said. That's more than three times the price of a plain pine casket but less than half the $7,000 or $8,000 needed to buy a solid bronze one.

Its either a pine box, MLB casket or solid bronze afterlife cruiser. These are the only choices.

Pictures! I want pictures! How can you make a major purchasing decision such as this without seeing the product?

Umps should look into this, make a few extra bucks officiating the funerals.

You want me to act like weve never kissed
You want me to forget, pretend weve never met
And Ive tried and Ive tried but I havent yet
You walk by, and I fall to pieces

This isn't for me. I'm thinking more along the lines of Hunter S. Thompson's funeral.

I want my ashes to be shot out of a cannon shaped like a fist with two thumbs, with a giant replica of the Sox World Series ring on the ring finger. Heck, I want all four fingers and both thumbs to have have rings!

Better yet, shoot my ashes out of the Cell's fireworks launchers when a Sox player hits a game-winning grand slam!

Ewwwww! Sorry, Frater. I'm sure you're a nice guy and all, but who the hell wants someone's ashes flying into her beer? :o:

My boss was at a funeral in Milwaukee a few weeks ago, where the deceased's ashes were encased in what he referred to as "a bomb" -- I assume a shell casing -- that was painted in Green Bay colors. I was dying to know what they did with "the bomb" after the funeral -- can you believe he didn't ask? :?:
