Football Fan

A man had 50 yard line tickets for the Steelers-Seahawks Super Bowl Game in Detroit, MI. As he sat down, a man approached him and asked him if the seat next to him was available.

"Yes," he said sadly, "the seat is empty."

"This is incredible", exclaimed the man. "Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the Super Bowl, the biggest sports event in the world, and not use it?"

Somberly, the seated man replied, "Well... the seat actually belongs to me. I was supposed to come here with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first Super Bowl we have not been together since we got married in 1967."

"Oh I'm sorry to hear that. That's terrible. But couldn't you find someone else - a friend or relative or even a neighbor to take the seat?"

Shaking his head he replied, "No. They're all at her funeral."
