Browns Fan's Obituary Is Perfect





Looks like Scott E. Entsminger will be let down by the Cleveland Browns one last time afterall.

Just not in the way he'd like.

Team spokesman Zak Gilbert told NewsChannel5 that it will not be possible to fulfill Entsminger's dying wish, considering the team is not currently in Berea and does not start training camp until the end of July.

The team has reached out to Entsminger's widow, however, and will present the family with a Hall of Famer Lou Groza jersey for the memorial service.


In the middle of an otherwise normal obituary printed in the Columbus Dispatch for Scott E. Entsminger is this amazing little nugget of black humor. It seems the only relief from being a Browns fan is the grave, and even then, the expectations are the same.

A lifelong Cleveland Browns fan and season ticket holder, he also wrote a song each year and sent it to the Cleveland Browns as well as offering other advice on how to run the team. He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time.

Bravo, sir. RIP.
