Friend flushes remains down many ball parks and even the Rock & Roll HOF’s toilets
A New York City man is on a mission to flush the cremated remains of his lifelong friend — a plumber — down ballpark toilets around the country.
Tom McDonald tells The New York Times that it’s a fitting tribute for Roy Riegel.
The two baseball fans were childhood friends in Queens, not far from — wait for it — Flushing Meadows, where the Mets play.
Like baseball, this endeavor has rules. The game has to be in progress when McDonald sprinkles the ashes into the toilet from a little plastic bottle.
So far, he’s done the deed at 16 stadiums.
Riegel also was a music fan: In Cleveland, McDonald flushed ashes at both Progressive Field and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
I had never thought of doing something like this with my ashes after I’m dead. This would be a really cool thing to do. Spreading your ashes a little here and there at different NFL, NHL, and MLB stadiums. I would only want to do the ones I’ve been and then maybe some ones I always wanted to visit.
Having said that if it was the dead guy’s decision to do this What A Dick. After your dead how could you send someone to do all this for you. The friend might be the nicest guy in the world or is retired with a lot of time on his hands. That is a straight out psycho move.
