Seriously, RTFA, it's a great story, and good on the IronPigs for the choice they made.

Is this about the dude that did a header off the cheap seats in Atlanta last week?

Tuesday, his wish was fulfilled when he was named the winner of the essay contest as part of the IronPIgs' Celebration of Life night at Coca-Cola Park.

See, having to write all those essays in school might finally pay off one day.

Frankly, my ideal funeral involves strippers, an open bar, and a magician to make the corpse disappear so everyone can get back to the PAR-TAY.

/Yes, my mental voice turned to Bender midway through that sentence.

Considering that he is going to need a funeral sooner than everyone else in that stadium (presumably), I think the sponsors made the right decision.  Good on them.

I don't agree with the use of the weird tag.

Worst news: you must claim your prize within 30 days.

I bet he's dying to use it.

Does it have to be redeemed in a certain period of time?

That's good. Watching baseball makes me want to die anyway.

/worse than Soccer.

"That would've been nice [if Halladay was here]," Paul admitted with a smile.Actually, the Phillies brass figured that giving away one funeral in Allentown was enough for the night; they didn't want to also have to host the funeral for Doc's career./89-MPH fastball in Lakewood yesterday//the story of Steve Paul is probably the most interesting story the Phils organization has produced all year
