Joke of the Day

A football fan receives a free ticket to the Super Bowl from his employer. Unfortunately, when he arrives at the stadium he realizes that the seat is in the LAST row in the corner of the stadium. He's closer to the damn Goodyear Blimp than he is to the field.

About halfway through the 1st quarter, he notices an empty seat 10 rows off the field on the 50-yard line. He decides to take a chance and makes his way through the stadium to the empty seat.

Before he sits down, he taps the shoulder of the man in the next seat over. "Excuse me, is anyone sitting here?" The man says no. The fan can't keep his excitement to himself. He turns to the man and says, "This is incredible! Who in their right mind would buy a seat like this at the Super Bowl and not use it?"

"Well, actually the seat belongs to me," the man replies. "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 1967." "

"That's really sad," says the fan. "Couldn't you find a relative or a close friend to take the seat?"

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