Seriously, Flushing is a shit-hole.*

Bundesliga club Hamburger SV has partnered with a local cemetery to give their fans the chance to ascend to the afterlife from a club-sanctioned graveyard, complete with a view of HSH Nordbank Arena and grass from the pitch covering their plot. From the AP:

Fans of the German soccer club Hamburger SV now have the chance for the ultimate resting place—their own cemetery and a grave covered with the original grass from the team’s playing field.

Fans traveling to their final resting place will enter the afterlife through a large replica of a goal. Because that's not tacky at all.

Alfred McLane**, a representative for Queens Borough President Helen M. Marshall, shot down rumors that the Mets would try something similar near CitiField, saying, "Flushing is already a fucking boneyard. What would be the point?"

* Not a lie.

** No such person.
