As a Pittsburgh Steelers fan I found an incredible amount of enjoyment in reading this article on CBSsports.com. Oh the Brownies, those miserable, terrible, no good Browns from that miserable, terrible no good city of Cleveland. I have often sat and contemplated, “If I was from Cleveland and had to be a Browns fan would I even like football?” I get it, I am lucky to be from Pittsburgh and have the Steelers as my team, but I got news for you chubby it’s the only reason I am lucky to be born in Pittsburgh.
“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 “lifelongCleveland 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.”
