(Newser) – An Ohio man's tongue-in-cheek obituary blames the winless Cleveland Browns for contributing to his demise, the AP reports.

The football team was 1-15 last season and 0-15 this year ahead of Sunday's finale in Pittsburgh. Even so, Stark's obituary included a nugget of the optimism voiced by some long-suffering fans. It says the 80-year-old Mansfield native "passed just before the Browns were prepared to turn the corner." (Read more Cleveland Browns stories.)
