Terry Siebert of Hamilton, Ontario died last Monday at the age of 58. His family published an obituary in the Hamilton Spectator. It described at length his loving family and friends and how he impacted their lives. Then, in the final line, Siebert snarked at the Maple Leafs, which is a professional hockey team in Toronto:

It was Terry's last wish that his pallbearers be the Toronto Maple Leafs so they could let him down one last time.

With Toronto being just a little under five hours from Cleveland, this guy clearly read (and copied) the obituary of Scott E. Entsminger, a Cleveland Browns fan. His obit said the exact same thing back in July of 2013. From ESPN:

"A lifelong Cleveland Browns fan has gone to his final rest, but not before making one last request from the team.
Scott E. Entsminger, 55, of Mansfield, Ohio, died on July 4. Entsminger, a Columbus native, was a musician and a Browns season-ticket holder who wrote a song for the team each year and sent it in, along with his advice on how to run the team.
According to his obituary in the Columbus Dispatch, Entsminger also 'respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time.'
The family also has requested that 'everyone' wear their Browns clothing to Entsminger's funeral Tuesday.
Browns public relations director Zak Gilbert told that as soon as the Browns learned of Entsminger's death they contacted his widow, Pat, to express their condolences.
'She told us that Scott's favorite player was Lou Groza, so we had a 76 jersey customized with Scott's last name,' Gilbert said.
A representative from the Browns' front office will personally deliver it to Pat Entsminger at her husband's memorial service Tuesday afternoon."
