You may have to have lived a few years in Cleveland to get how truly awesome this man’s last request is:

[Scott E.] 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.“
