Rest in peace, honey — after the Mountaineers game, of course

There’s nary a doubt that college football fans are arguably the most passionate fans of any sport in the country.  When it comes to their particular schools, there’s little they wouldn’t do in order to catch them each and every fall Saturday, all in an effort to live and die with their boys.

Want the latest example of extreme fanaticism?  Here’s a portion of an obituary from the Charleston Post & Courier:

Joan Renee Kirby, 58, wife of Larry Kirby, of N. Charleston, SC, died Tuesday, September 14, 2010. Friends and family are invited to a visitation at Parks Funeral Home, in Summerville, SC, Saturday afternoon, September 18, 2010, from 4 – 6 o’clock so that there won’t be a conflict with the West Virginia Mountaineers football game. Burial will be held at a later date.

You think you love your school?  Top that, posers.

Condolences to the Kirby family on their loss.  And good luck Saturday afternoon.  With the game, I mean.

    In Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer there is the story of a couple who skipped their daughters wedding for the Alabama-Tennessee game.
