What do you do with one of your body parts, once removed? Consider them a family heirloom, naturally. Let us take a rare look into the world of sports, visiting a baseball player after surgery:
"My daughter asked me to bring something back from the hospital and she said 'your rib.' So I brought my rib back. Fortunately the doctor gave it to me and allowed me to take it home...
"(The rib) is actually in one of my cabinets in my bathroom," Carpenter said. "I'm still trying to figure out what we're going to do with it. It's probably smelling really good. It's in a jar with some of that solution. It was pretty gross, actually.
Said awesome daughter is 7 years old. Awesome!
What to do with a rib?
"I'm sure we'll do something with it ... Make a necklace or bracelets or something. We haven't figured that out yet."
Does this qualify as sports Gothic?
