Robert Comer was a convicted murderer, rapist and kidnapper who was executed today, so this isn't exactly a lighthearted story. But it is the second time this year that a condemned man has expressed his loyalty to his favorite football team just before he was executed.

Comer was put to death by lethal injection, and the last words he spoke were "Go Raiders!" The reporters who witnessed the execution wrote that "with that, his smile slowly faded until he passed out."

Last month convicted murderer James Filiaggi made a joke just before he was executed about how he would use his magic to get the Cleveland Browns to the Super Bowl.
