humor - oh, that explains it!

This one is a "golden oldie" among hard-core football fans. With apologies in advance to wives everywhere . . .

A man won a contest and received a free ticket to the Super Bowl. He was thrilled, but when he got to the stadium and found his seat he was somewhat disappointed because it was apparent that his seat was way up high up in the "nose bleed" section. Not having brought any binoculars, but desperate to get a better view of the game, he began looking around.

That's when he spied a seat close to the field that had remained empty for some time. He decided to go check it out. When he reached the seat, he asked the man next to the unoccupied seat if anyone was seating there.

The man replied, "No." So the guy sat down in the empty seat and struck up a conversation.

"Who would have a seat right next to the field and not come? This seat must have cost a fortune!"

The man answers, "Oh, it did cost a fortune, but the "who" is my wife."

"Where is she?" the guy replied.

"She died."

"Oh, I'm so sorry. But, uh, didn't you have anyone else to come with you, a brother, or friend?"

"No, they couldn't come."


"Because they're all at her funeral."
