Fans of the Kansas City Chiefs know the team is bad. But are they deadly?

Yes, according to a relatives of one Missouri Man who died Wednesday.

According to his obituary, 81-year-old Loren "Sam" Lickteig passed away on November 14, 2012. He died of complications from MS and heartbreaking disappointment, caused by the Kansas City Chiefs football team.

He was so disappointed, he started wearing colored tee-shirts months ago while watching the Chiefs on tv.

"He would start off with his red shirt. Then, if they were doing so, so, he would switch to yellow. Then, we knew, without even looking at the tv, we knew what the score was, because if he had that black shirt on, they were losing. And you see how faded it is, because it has been washed a lot this season," Amy Turner, Lickteig's Daughter.

Lickteig's three Daughters say they will greatly miss theri father, but are happy to be able to give this Jokester, the final word.
