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.

silly me.

I thought this was a Tiger-Cats forum.

Really? I need to explain it to you?

no matter how you wish to spin it Ockham, this article has nothing to do with the Tiger-Cats. period.

Could the MODS please move this thread to the "Other Leagues" section. thanks.

Sounds like a amazing fan that stood behind his team there thick and thin. RIP!

I get it...and appreciate it. :thup:

After this weekends dismal performance, we need a laugh like this story :lol:

I was going to ask 6 Cats defensive players to be my pall bearers but I am not sure if they will still be here in 2 weeks and they would prabably drop me anyway.

Ok, I'll explain it to you. This is an idea one football fan had that others may wish to copy. Example: call 1 Jarvis Street and see if similar arrangements can be made.

There, get it now?

If you don't wish to make such arrangements nor read this thread then I have a Pro Tip for you: don't read the thread. Have a nice day :smiley:

My word, TW, as I was reading the article I immediately began reflecting upon the last 15 years of the Ticats. Sure seems appropriate to me.

tangledweb has nothing to do with ticat football, mods please change his/her screen name to ticatfan12612

likewise "espo"

FYI a username is not required to be Tiger-Cats related.
although I'm certain you already know this, correct?

just exchanging one ridiculous request for another
