The Terrible Towel apparently gained’t be joined by the Unbearable Urn.
During Sunday’s recreation between the Broncos and the Steelers at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, a fan unfold ashes on the turf on the venue.
“An incident occurred during the game at Heinz Field on Sunday where a fan was spreading ashes of a deceased family member in the stadium,” Steelers spokesman Burt Lauten advised WTAE-TV. “Heinz Field management does not permit or condone such actions. While we respect those fans who may be interested in honoring a family member by spreading their family’s ashes inside the stadium, Heinz Field cannot accommodate those requests due to state and local regulations. We have responded to communications from our fans throughout the years that this type of action is not permissible.”
On Sunday, the fan in query opted to hunt forgiveness in lieu of permission. It’s unclear what the implications of searching for forgiveness will likely be. Cremains are superheated and never inherently hazardous.
Indeed, they will’t be any worse that the poisonous rubber pellets that present up in every single place at stadiums with synthetic surfaces.
