The 53-year-old Kent man actually didn't see the game. He recorded the game, intending to watch it later, and went to sleep not feeling well, thinking it was indigestion or stress. He died in bed.

SPOKANE, Wash. -

The family of a Seahawks fan who died after the Super Bowl says he would have enjoyed the dig at the team they put in the last line of his obituary:

"We blame the Seahawks' lousy play call for Mike's untimely death."

The obituary for Michael Vedvik appeared Thursday in The Spokesman-Review (http://bit.ly/1DjeuPR ).

His wife Stephanie Vedvik says he would have thought the line was hysterical.

The 53-year-old Kent man actually didn't see the game. He recorded the game, intending to watch it later, and went to sleep not feeling well, thinking it was indigestion or stress. He died in bed.

His brother-in-law added the line about Seattle's unsuccessful last play to the obituary and Stephanie Vedvik approved.

Mike Vedvik's funeral will be Saturday at Mt. Spokane Church in Mead.
