Super Bowl

A man receives a free ticket to the Super Bowl from his company. Unfortunately, when he 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 the field. About halfway through the first quarter, he 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 replies, "No." Now, very excited to be in such a great seat for the game, he says to the man,
"This is incredible, who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the Super Bowl 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 attended together since we got married in

"Well, that's terribly sad," said the other man. "But still, couldn't you find a relative or a close
friend to take the seat?"

"No," replied the man, "they're all at the funeral."
