Man blames KC Chiefs for eventual Death

As a life-long Kansas City Chiefs fan, I TOTALLY understand this. I’ve suffered for decades with Bill Kenney, Mike Livingston, Steve Bono, Elvis Grbac & now Matt Cassel. When you haven’t won a playoff game since 1993 (I still have the Sports Illustrated…), depression becomes a way of life.
I have no doubt that my OWN obituary (hopefully many years in the future) will be quite similar to this one…. God help me.

The Daley Gator

Loren G. “Sam” Lickteig, an Air Force vet and longtime football fan, passed away on Wednesday after suffering complications from both multiple sclorosis and his ”heartbreaking disappointment caused by the Kansas City Chiefs,” according to his obituary in The Kansas City Star.

Lickteig’s daughters said that, although their father didn’t write his obit, he had a great sense of humor and would have loved it. He would even change his shirt from red to black if the Chiefs were losing during a game, they said.

The Chiefs are currently 1-9 for the season, and the obituary went to press on the day the Chiefs lost by a 6-28 point margin to the Cincinatti Bengals.

  1. Wasn’t it 1994 when the Snickers ad came out with the guy in the endzone painting “Chefs”? I think the curse is related to Snickers.

    Still, Mr. Lickteig must have had a HIGH tolerance for suffering and depression if it took THIS long for the Chefs to have THAT effect on him. Lesser men would have keeled over a decade ago…..
