The Super Bowl Fan

A guy named Bob received a free ticket
to the Super Bowl from his company.
Unfortunately, when he arrives he
realizes he 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
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 asks of the man
next to him, "This is incredible! who
in their right mind would have a Super
Bowl seat like this 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 at together 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."
