A guy named Bob receives a free ticket to the Super
Bowl from his company.
Unfortunately, when Bob arrives at the stadium he
realizes the seat is in the
last row in the corner of the stadium - he's closer
to the Goodyear blimp than
About halfway through the first quarter, Bob notices
an empty seat 10 rows off
the field, right on the 50 yard line. He decides to
take a chance and makes his
way through the stadium and around the security
guards to the empty seat. As
he sits down, he asks the gentleman sitting next to
him, "Excuse me, is anyone
sitting here?" The man says no.
Now, very excited to be in such a great seat for the
game, Bob again inquires of
the man next to him, "This is incredible! Who in
their right mind would have a seat
like this at the SuperBowl and not use it?"
The man replies, "Well, actually, the seat belongs
to me, I was supposed to come
with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first
Super Bowl we haven't been
together at since we got married in 1967."
"Well, that's really sad," says Bob, "but still,
couldn't you find someone to take the
seat? A relative or close friend?" "No," the man
replies, "they're all at the funeral."
