    Those yearly songs must have been the tip-off for the team, that Scott was no ordinary fan. Wonder if the Browns are going to honor his final request.....

    Sounds like a great plot for a movie. I can see it now:

    "Weekend at Bernie Kosar's"

    hahaha... this is pretty darn funny. I can only imagine those fans who are die-hards for teams that seem to really have a tough time making it to the big games let alone winning them!

    That's hilarious. I wonder if the Browns responded in any way, or just let it go. I think this went viral.

    You all have a pretty low threshold for funny. This is a funny obituary:

    Frank Gasparro, Lincoln Penny Designer

    Frank Gasparro, former chief engraver at the U.S. Mint and designer of the tail side of the Lincoln Penny, is permanently out of circulation.

    The 92-year-old apparently drowned after a young couple threw him into a wishing well.

    News of his death came as a shock to loved ones, who had believed hew was in good, but worn condition.

    Gasparro was appointed chief engraver a the U.S. Mint by President Lyndon Johnson in 1968 but had to leave under a storm of protest after the debut of the unpopular "My Lai Massacre Nickle."

    Family members recall that whenever people unfamiliar with this work asked where they might find some examples, he would reply, "It's in your pocket," leading to the widespread misconception that Gasparro invented the lint-covered condom.

    It was Gasparro's last with that his remains be flattened by a locomotive.
