"The Gipper" dug up for a DNA test

CNN and several news outlets are reporting that former Notre Dame athlete George Gipp, who inspired the rallying cry "Win one for the Gipper," was exhumed recently for DNA tests. Gipp died in 1920.

A relative of Gipp's requested the test, but reasons were not immediately clear.

Kinda makes me think about being cremated ;-)
