Obit claims man died of ‘heartbreaking disappointment’ from Chiefs football
Some football fans love their team too death… literally. I have heard many people say they live and die for a win by their favorite team, but I can’t recall the cause of death being listed in an obituary as “complications from MS and heartbreaking disappointment caused by the Kansas City Chiefs football team.”
Article from: CBSSports.com:
On Sunday, the Chiefs lost. Again. They’re 1-9 on the season and causing plenty of heartbreak among their passionate fan base. It’s so bad, in fact, that one dedicated Chiefs fan who died recently had the Chiefs listed as the cause of death in his obituary.
Sam Lickteig died on Nov. 14, 2012, “of complications from MS and heartbreaking disappointment caused by the Kansas City Chiefs football team.”
This isn’t an actual medical diagnosis, of course. Lickteig’s daughter Jennifer, said her father was quite the funny man and would’ve appreciated the shot fired at KC through his obit.
“My dad was such a comedian,” she said. “He loved the Chiefs, so we had to let him have the last word.”
Nothing’s funnier than a man firing from the grave at his beloved, struggling football team. That’s exactly what Lickteig did. It might not make the Chiefs better any time soon, but it definitely reminds us all just how horrible they really are right now.
