A man had front row tickets behind home plate at the World Series, when another guy comes down and asks if anyone is sitting in the seat next to him. “Nope”, he replied, “that seat is empty”.
“Whoah! That’s crazy!”, said the guy. “Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the World Series, the biggest day in all of baseball, and not even bother show up?”
Sadly, the man says, “Well… the seat actually belongs to me. I was supposed to come here with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first World Series we’ve missed since we got married in 1964.”
“Oh, I’m so sorry to hear that. What a shame. But couldn’t you find someone else – a friend or relative or even a neighbor to take the seat?”
“Nah,” the man replies as he shakes his head, “they’re all at the funeral.”
