Some Words Before Dying

I was reading some actual last words from prisoners about to be put to death. Some were spiritual:
"I'm ready to be released. Release me."

Others were just plain weird:
"I didn't take [the last meal] because I have very strong convictions about abortion and the 33 million babies that have been aborted in this country. Those babies never got a first meal and that's why I didn't take the last in their memory."

But most had to do with football:

"Redskins are going to the Super Bowl."

"We all got to go sometime, some sooner than others. I'm going to be busy getting the Browns to the Super Bowl. Working magic. I love you guys."

"Go Raiders!"
That last one was completely futile. What a waste!
