People always throw out weird stuff surrounding their death ("When I die I want blah blah blah") but you rarely see people follow through on it. Not Scott E. Entsminger, a Browns fan who died at the age of 55 on July 4.
Entsminger "was an accomplished musician, loved playing the guitar and was a member of the Old Fogies Band." He was also, per his obituary in the Columbus Dispatch, a "lifelong Cleveland Browns fan and season ticket holder."
The deceased wasn't just your average Browns fan: He apparently wrote a song each year about the Browns, which he sent to the team along with advice about how to run the organization.
And he was such a big Browns fan that the family encouraged everyone attending his funeral wear clothes supporting the team. But here's the real kicker -- he wanted his pallbearers to be Browns as well.
Why? Well ...
"He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time."
Oh, Browns. You even managed to get beat by the deceased.
maybe they can fumble the casket too.
Hey, that’s not nice. What if 6 guys from the team volunteer? Strange request, but if the team helps out, it would be a nice gesture.
LOL. It’s tough being a Browns fan these days. I wonder if he died with a paper bag on his head.
I thought Tony Romo got that gig?
This is pretty funny. They ought to play along with the gag.
Hey, I know the Browns will have trouble finding 6 guys who aren’t in jail or who give a crap about their fans, so maybe the Indians can provide 3 players so they can let him down one last time, too. Oh, assuming they can find 3 who are capable. Or there’s always the Cavs to help out, too.
All three teams are great at letting fans down. They should open a giant funeral parlor.
If I was a Brown, I’d do it.
Get over it pal.
