SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - 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, says he would have found the line hilarious.
    
The 53-year-old Kent man actually didn't see the game. He recorded it, intending to watch later, and went to sleep not feeling well, thinking it was indigestion or stress. He died in bed after a heart attack.
    
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 Mount Spokane Church in Mead.
