Trophies for dead people

Posted on 07/12/2006 in misc

One of the trophies for my little league team was damaged, so I asked Crown Awards to send a replacement. They did, but they sent a girl baseball trophy. So I called again and had a replacement for the replacement sent.

It arrived today. But instead of 2006 Major League Braves, Spotsylvania VA as the engraving, it said Bonnie Joudrey, 1916-2006.

Who the hell is ordering a trophy for a dead person?

I was able to pry the engraving plate off the girl trophy and put it on the trophy that came today, so I do have a complete and correct trophy for the kid now.

But I'm still trying to wrap my head around what you could possibly order from Crown Awards for a dead person.

I like hearing from readers, all three of you! Nobody comments on blogs anymore, and I'd rather not use Facebook or Twitter as a comment system so it's back to the email.
