When do you cross the line from fan to fanatic? The new trend is coffins and urns decked out with your favorite team’s logo. That’ll cause friends and family to say, “Oh, Jim always was crazy about baseball.” Well, now we’ve got our own Cubs mausoleum. Try that, and they’ll be saying, “Oh, Jim always was bats**t crazy.”
Modeled after Wrigley field, complete with red brick and ivy, comes Beyond the Vines. There is room for 288 “season ticket holders” to rest peacefully in “Eternal Skyboxes.” See, that’s funny, because I always thought the appropriate place for Cubs to be buried was in the NL Central cellar.
