Cleveland Browns Let Down Dead Fan One Last Time
Sports fans are definitely a crazy bunch. Their love/hate runs deep with their team, but this is the first time I’ve ever heard of a fan requesting his football team serve as pallbearers at his funeral.
55 year old Scott Entsminger passed away on July 4th and was a mega huge Cleveland Browns fan. He was so passionate about his team that he wrote a song about the Browns every year and set it to the team (what are the chances they actually listened to it?) and with the song he also sent advice about how to run the Browns organization.
When family and friends went to the funeral to say their final goodbyes to Scott, they were asked to wear Browns clothes to support the team (???), but that’s not the strangest part.
According to Scott’s obit in the Columbus Dispatch, Scott’s will stated “He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time.”
That’s right- it was in his will. That’s pretty entertaining.
