“When I die, I want the Mets to be my pallbearers so they can let me down one last time”

"When I die, I want (X) to be my pallbearers so they can let me down one last time” is a popular meme on many images. That ‘X” is often a sports player or sports team. “I want Roy Williams to be a pallbearer at my funeral. That way he can let me down one last time” was cited on Twitter on April 1, 2008. “When I die I want the (Dallas—ed.) cowboys to be my palbearers cause they can let me down one last time!!!!!!!!!” was cited on Twitter on October 11, 2009. A dying Cleveland Browns fan actually made this request in 2013.

“When I die, I would like the people I did group projects with to lower me into my grave so they can let me down one last time” went viral on Twitter on August 26, 2014.  This line has also been printed on many images.

Saw this on another forum, about their play in the current series:
“I want the sharks to carry my casket when I die so they can let me down a final time.”

The old go-to jokes like “When I die, I want the Vikings to be my pall bearers so they can let me down one last time” will be appreciated, but probably avoided. Be original.

“He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pall bearers so the Browns can let him down one last time.”

Oh, Browns. You even managed to get beat by the deceased.

Northeastern Ohio cemeteries are filled with people who gasped their last breath without witnessing one of their sports teams win anything. There was the Ohioan who famously included a line in his obituary about wanting a Cleveland Brown to serve as pallbearer so “they can let me down one more time.”

There’s an old joke amongst sports fans which goes, “When I die, I want my favorite team to lower me into my grave so they can let me down one last time.”
