Man wants Browns pallbearers so team 'can let him down one last time'
CBS Sports ^ | July 8, 2013 11:27 am ET | By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

Posted on 07/08/2013 1:09:44 PM PDT by Perdogg

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."

They'll fumble two yards short of the endzone.

I’d want to be buried by New England Patriots so I could cheat death...

My Dad,a lifelong Boston resident,passed away about a week before the Red Sox won the Series in ‘04.He was about 3 years old when the Sox had last won it...in something like 1918.

At least he didn’t ask Mark Sanchez and the Jets or the coffin will end up in another cemetery.

What if they fumble the casket?

He should hire another NFL team to run him into the other end zone just in case.

Ahem.

I believe it was the super-fantastic Roger the Dodger Staubach who did pretty well with the Hail Mary Pass while inventing it!

(Staubach is one of my three lifetime heroes, btw.)

“I’d want to be buried by New England Patriots so I could cheat death...”

Ya, it sucks to be a sports fan in Boston. I can’t even lift my head from the shame of the Pats cheating. I’d rather live in a city that only wins pure championships like Cleveland. Almost forgot the Buckeye’s were always the
“gold standard” for athletic integrity and academics. Let’s see, when was the last time a Cleveland professional sports team won a championship? I’m 48 and I don’t recall one?

From the late 1960’s to the early ‘80’s, the Rams owned their division, but year after year, they would always find a way to lose in the playoffs, even when they had the home field advantage and were heavily favored.

SAY WHAT??? All three of them....Browns, Cavs, Indians, sure do know one thing. That would be how to grab defeat from the jaws of victory. I'll take the strategy of Belichik or the knowledge of baseball of Red Sox fans, anyday.

I read that a lot of Boston area cemeteries had Sox paraphernalia placed on many gravesites the day after we won.

I’m sorry your Dad missed it.I just cried.

Except in 89, versus the Eagles vaunted Gang Green defense. I remember, it was New Years Eve,and they couldn’t stop Jim Everett, Henry Ellard, and Flipper Anderson. I pray I live long enough to see an Eagle hoist the Lombardi Trophy!

Well, as a Chief’s fan, maybe that’s what I need to ask for instead of praying that they have a playoff team just one more time before I go. Don’t want any receivers though. Don’t want to be dropped. : )

The Dying Cubs Fan's Last Request"

Chorus-

Do they still play the blues in Chicago
When the baseball season rolls around
When the snow goes away
Do the Cubbies still play
In their ivy-covered burial ground?

Oh when I was a boy
The Cubs were my pride and joy
But now they only bring fatigue
In the home of the free
The land of the brave
And the doormat of the National League
