We understand that death is a difficult thing to cope with. And we understand that sometimes people have to do what they have to do in order to gain a little piece of mind. We get it. But you have to understand that some people might think your behavior is just a little creepy; especially when you bring your dead husband to a Steelers game.
Kathleen Desrosiers, 60, took an urn with her late husband’s ashes inside to Sunday’s snow-filled contest between the Steelers and the Jaguars. She even wore the proper attire for the game.
Braving the biting cold and the Steelers’ disappointing 29-22 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, Desrosiers waved her new Terrible Towel, showed off her painted face and warmed her head with a Steelers hat.
She called it “an overwhelming experience.”
“It’s sad to think that he got here in death,” she added. “But this is where he wanted to be. It was what he asked me to do. I got to be with him one last time while he did something he wanted more than anything else in the whole wide world.
It really is a fitting tribute to man who loved his team and we won’t knock you for that. We just feel bad for the guy who was stuck sitting next to an urn all game long. Oh well, it could have been worse. At least Mr. Desrosiers was in an urn; this could have very easily turned into a Weekend at Bernie’s situation.
