Christopher Sanuino, a 17-year-old Colombian soccer fan, was shot and killed while playing the game he loved. He was a fan of the Cucuta Deportivo Colombian soccer club. After his wake, friends of his took the coffin and paraded it around in the streets and finally took him into the stadium. (video inside post)
Could you imagine watching a game and suddenly you look to your left and see a dead guy? To some it might be a bit creepy but I think this is awesome; there are a lot of people who wish to have their ashes spread at stadiums and that’s not weird is it? Granted, I’m sure this isn’t great for the publics health and there are probably a lot of legal issues with this. There are even teams (Hamburg SV) that have sections of cemetaries just for their supporters.
It is not clear whether this was his last wish or not but to be paraded around before 45,000 people is a pretty cool way to go out. This just shows how devoted fans are to their teams, even after death.
