putting the "fun" back in funeral

Dia de los Muertos doesn't get much attention here in Tennessee. But there's something about a Maryville mortuary may be appropriate for today. Funeral homes are not known for having a sense of humor. It's great to happen upon the rare instance when one does.

Almost everything at a Knoxville Ice Bears hockey game is sponsored. You can cheer for the US Cellular Stars of the Game or try to win a prize with the Moe's Southwest Grill Chuck-a-Puck contest. Players who are fighting or high sticking have to spend time in the Memorial Funeral Home Penalty Box.

Perhaps the fights should be sponsored as well. I'm thinking Gold's Gym or maybe a well-known hospital.

Have you noticed the Ice Bears TV commercials? They prominently feature video of two hockey knuckleheads beating on each other to no avail.

Reminds me of the joke about going to a fight when a hockey game broke out.
