The family of a Seattle Seahawks fan used his obituary to tease the team about Sunday's loss at Super Bowl XLIX.
Michael Vedvik, 53, of Kent, Washington, died a day after the team fell to the New England Patriots.
In his obituary published in The Spokesman-Review on Thursday, Vedvik's relatives quip that the Seahawks' poor play caused the fan’s death.
“We blame the Seahawks lousy play call for Mike's untimely demise,” the obit reads in reference to a last-minute interception that sealed the result.
Vedvik’s sister wrote the obituary but his brother added in the joke, his wife Stephanie told The Spokesman-Review. She also said Vedvik would not have just approved of the joke but would have found it “hysterical.”
“If I had read this obituary to my husband about somebody else, he would have had a laugh,” Vedvik added.
