A woman from Wisconsin had 50 yard line tickets for the Super Bowl. As she sat down, a man came along and asked her if anyone was sitting in the seat next to her. “No,” she said, “the seat is empty.”
“That is incredible,” said the man. “Who would have a seat like this for the Super Bowl and not use it?”
Somberly, the woman said, “Well… the seat actually belongs to me. I was supposed to come here with my husband, but he passed away. This is the first Super Bowl we have not been to 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, relative or even a neighbor to take the seat?” The woman shook her head, “No, they’re all at the funeral.”
