Sorry, we're closed!

In case I offend anyone for this post, let me apologize now. It is not my intent to offend anyone regarding the death of Steve McNair or to make light of the tragedy, but this article from the IndyStar.com yesterday had me banging my head on my desk...

Fans disappointed McNair visitation is closed casket

People were disappointed that McNair’s casket was closed during the visitation.“I wanted to view him — I didn’t want to view a casket. I think everybody expected to see him,” said Jackie Smith, who stopped by before going to work at the U.S. Postal Service.

Smith described herself as a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, “but I enjoyed that Air McNair.” She said the reality of McNair’s death finally kicked in yesterday when she saw his obituary in the newspaper, “but still I’d prefer to view the body to have some closure.”

I understand that people may want or even need to see the body in order to have closure when someone passes. OK, fine. Let's jump back to the story of Steve McNair's death after it was determined it was a murder-suicide.

"And we believe that Kazemi shot him in the right temple, then shot him twice in the chest and then shot him a final time in the left temple."

The man has two gun shot wounds to the head, people! Yes, funeral home beauticians can do wonders with makeup, but the man has two holes in his head!!!!!!!!!!!! Maybe they CAN cover it up and make him look natural but FUCKING COME ON!!!!!!

Do you really think they intended to have an open casket at the visitation?!?!?!?!?

Maybe if he was being buried in his helmet, you might open the casket, but who the fuck am I kidding. Good grief fans, use that empty thing on top of you neck and get a fucking clue will you.

Alright, nothing to see here, keep moving!
