Obituary claims Kansas City Chiefs’ poor performance killed man

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.
