My Will

We met with a financial planner earlier this week and one of the suggestions we received is to create a will and a living will, especially after the Terri Schiavo case. Although this blog probably does not count as a legal document, if I’m in coma with no chance of recovering, pull the plug.

As far as a non-living will, there are some items that I feel really need to be included. My money (or lack thereof) will go to my wife. My baseball, football, Desert Storm, hockey, Garbage Pail Kids and basketball cards will go to my brother. However, some others items are a little tougher. For example, who will get the following:

* A bottle of Big Ben’s (as in Roethlisberger) BBQ Sauce.
* My Kordell Stewart jersey.
* Senior Class of 1997 Commemorative Wine – Ithaca College Blues and Ithaca College Blush – produced by Lucas Vineyards.
* My ticket stub collection. Where else can you have ticket stubs from Pirates, Penguins, Padres, Nationals, Ohio State and Steelers games along with ticket stubs from Dave Matthews Band, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Debbie Gibson concerts?
* A bag of Snyder of Berlin’s Pittsburgh Steelers Wavy Potato Chips (I’m scared to open the bag).
* My shot glass collection (I’m using collection loosely; I probably have 8 shot glasses).
* A Donald Duck kazoo.
* My collection of "rare" coins such as 1910 penny, 3 1/2 franc coins, 1 Israeli Shekel, a $2 Canadian coin and a 1990 Chuck E. Cheese token.
* Dancing flowers. When you press the button, a Glen Miller Orchestra song comes on and the flowers dance. It’s a big hit among 2- and 3-year olds. Not so much for their parents who don’t seem to like the song playing over and over again.
* This blog! Will I bestow the honor of upholding the history and tradition of Sean’s Ramblings to just anyone?

These are some difficult decisions.

Does the recipient of the Kordell jersey also get the Kendrell Bell??!

Dan, that's an excellent question, and you have a very good memory. I'm not sure what to do with the Kendrell Bell's Steelers jersey. I still feel like he could break out in Kansas City, but that hasn't happened yet.

The Kordell and Kendrell jerseys are a probably a package deal.

Can I have the Donald Duck kazoo?

Amy, I should warn you that the Donald Duck kazoo is used. Even though I haven't played it in over five years, it probably has Sean cooties.
