Football Fan Dies of Heartbreak Caused By Team’s Losses

share on:

A fan of American football team, Kansas City Chiefs died, and the cause of death was listed as “heartbreak”.

According to Loren Lickteig’s obituary, the 81-year-old fan died of “heartbreaking disappointment caused by the Kansas City football team.” OK, and complications from multiple sclerosis. Lickteig didn’t write the obit, but he loved the team so much he kept an array of Chiefs shirts: red for when they were doing well and black for when they were losing.

“He was quite the jokester,” says his daughter. “So this is his last laugh.” The obit’s now gone viral, with one sports fan tweeting “I feel ya LOREN.” So Chiefs, can you win one for Lickteig?
