Fan asked for Browns pallbearers so team ‘can let him down one last time’
The Cleveland Browns have not won a playoff game since 1994 and, like many other fans, Scott E. Entsminger grew tired of the team’s annual failures. Entsminger, a lifelong Browns fan and season ticket holder, passed away at his Ohio home on July 4 at the age of 55. But not before taking one final parting shot at the team he spent his life rooting for.
Entsminger’s obituary, which was published on The Columbus Dispatch website, revealed that he requested Cleveland Browns as pallbearers for his funeral. The reason behind it is priceless.
“He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time,” the obituary read.
The tribute also called Entsminger a “fun-loving” person, which is evident based on his aforementioned dying wish. He is not the first nor the second person to take a shot at his team before passing away, but Entsminger’s request was easily one of the most creative. When a team enters a 20-year drought with no playoff victories, these things tend to become more common.
