Americans take their national pastime (that would be baseball, not talking loudly about America, apparently) very seriously. Now, true fans of grown-up rounders can support their team during their celestial seventh inning stretch (ie when they’re dead for the uninitiated) resting in peace in a baseball-themed urn or casket.
Burial-supplies manufacturer Eternal Image will be offering Major League Baseball caskets to go with their set of team urns. The designs feature team colours, logos and the same wood used to make baseball bats.
So, our American cousins can rest their heads on a Chicago Cubs pillow, for example, for the hereafter. The only question in our minds is, when will they start making West Ham urns?
