City Of Motherly Love

NOVEMBER 28--Meet Christopher Noteboom.

The 44-year-old was arrested yesterday after running onto the field at a Philadelphia Eagles game and dumping what he said were his mother's ashes.

Noteboom, an Arizona resident, told officials that the act, for which he was charged with defiant trespassing, was a tribute to his mother, an Eagles fan who died earlier this year. Noteboom, a Phoenix bar owner, was apprehended near the 30-yard line, where he did a face plant after performing the sign of the cross.

If the anemic Eagles had a running game, we'd make a joke about "three yards and a cloud of dust" right about here. (1 page)
