Twins Fan’s Obituary Says He Was Angry with Joe Mauer

A 22-year-old man named Josiah Abeler died recently after suffering a seizure in his sleep. I’m sure his family and friends are going through a difficult time, but that doesn’t mean the person who wrote the obituary had to take a shot at Joe Mauer the way they did:

Is that sick or what? I would think that’s the sort of thing that can be left out of an obituary. Aren’t all sins forgiven in the after life? Apparently not if you dare hit .287 with only three home runs.

Joe Mauer hasn’t played at an MVP-level since signing a monstrous 8-year $184 million extension last March. He’s dealt with injuries and he’s even switched away from playing catcher. It’s a difficult time for Twins fans, but Mauer is still a star player, so have faith. And please check your hatred at heaven’s gate; it’s not healthy.

And as long as nobody brings the casket to a Twins game, we’ll all be safe.

    I have met Joe on a couple of occassions – he is a great guy, as down to earth as anybody and fun to talk to. I’m not a Twins fan but I root for him to be healthy and keep playing well in the future.

    Never let a moron write your obit – ask someone you trust to do it – morbid conversation, yes, but after reading above it should look like its worth having.
