Now. that's a fan!

Wife Brings Ashes Of The Late Richard Desrosiers To Pittsburgh Steelers Game: "Diehard Fan: Man's Ashes 'Attend' Steelers Game
PITTSBURGH (AP) ― Richard Desrosiers never made it to Heinz Field to watch his beloved Steelers play football, but his widow helped him fulfill his dream in death.

Thanks to some help from sympathetic donors, Kathleen Desrosiers attended Sunday's game, bringing an urn with some of her late husband's ashes, as well as his ring and two pictures of him. He had died in March of a brain tumor."

  1. Nice... but it's a shame Mrs. Desrosiers didn't show up a couple of weeks ago. I'm sure Richard's ashes might have helped the groundskeepers give the field a little traction... now that would have been a story!
