    "In Loving Memory"

    These stickers people put on their cars. Look, I'm real sorry for your loss, I am, but we all know people who have died. What, do you want people to run up and hug you? Are you really honoring that person by putting that sticker on your P.O.S. car and driving it to Walmart?

    And what's with these roadside memorials? I mean, if your relative dies in a hospital are you going to go put up a memorial in the room they died in?

    When I die, if anyone I know does any of this in my memory, I will haunt their lame *****.

    I'm thinking the hospital would frown on this.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    Re: "In Loving Memory"

    Not sure why it has to have anything to do with you. They are memorializing a loved one in a way that tries to convey the significance of their loss and helps them cope with it. Not sure why you need to be bothered by it.

    Re: "In Loving Memory"

    I think the roadside memorials are good at reminding drivers how quickly life can be taken away and hopefully encourages them to be a little safer if even for a short time.

    Re: "In Loving Memory"

    I agree. The time to be loving to people is while they are still alive. Once they're dead, it's too late.

    I am much in favor of the Inuit tradition of mourning for a year and a day. On the last day, the deceased's possessions are given away, there's a party, and then you're done, and you go on with your lives. Much healthier.

    And no stickers on your dogsled.

    Re: "In Loving Memory"

    While we're on a similar topic, does anyone else with extremely Caucasian descent have the urge to get one of those large font stickers with your name on it that spans the entire back window of your car? I've only ever seen this for 'Rodriguez', or other latin names. I think it would be funny to have a 'Jorgensen' or 'Anderson' sticker just to throw people off a little.

    Re: "In Loving Memory"

    Can I just say I HATE funerals. I mean seriously, the person is dead, there's nothing you can do about it, and you want to get a bunch of people together to cry about it? Maybe you all should've got together before they died and tried to save their life if you cared so much about them. People being so sensitive is the downfall of America.

    Someone should put an "In Loving Memory" sticker on their car for your sense of humor.

    Re: "In Loving Memory"

    A couple of other things I hate are the stupid stick figure things people put on the window. As a bachelor, I'm tempted to put a stick figure of me boning a blond stick figure with big boobs.

    Also, sorority stickers on the back of the car. Thanks for letting me know there is a 90 percent chance you were easy in college.
