"He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time," the obituary said.


I wonder if the browns would end up granting his wish. Just from the public relations stand point alone, it seems like a good opportunity.

Is there any other kind of humor other than self-depricating for Browns' fans?

Respects to the deceased, for giving a lot of people one last laugh.

The family also has requested that "everyone" wear their Browns clothing to Entsminger's memorial Tuesday.

Cleveland Browns spokesman Zak Gilbert told NewsChannel5 Sports the team has reached out to his widow Pat to offer the team's condolences.

She informed the team that his favorite player was Hall of Famer Lou Groza. The team will present the Entsminger family with a number 76 jersey at the memorial service.

I'm glad the Browns had a sense of humor about it and responded appropriately.
