Topic: Widower at a sports event
Joined Thu 01/15/15
A couple of friends were on the way to find their seats for one of the biggest sports events of the year. when they got to their row, they noticed there was one seat in the row with no one in it.
Next to that seat there was a rather elderly gentleman.
They got the elderly gentlemen's attention and questioned him on why the seat next to him was empty.
"Well, you see, my wife and I used to go and watch every single game here since the stadium opened. This is the first time I've been to a game without her," he said.
The two friends were sympathetic and apologized profusely to the man for his great loss, to which he thanked them.
Then they asked "So it's the biggest game of the year, and you're here all alone? You don't have any friends or family you could've contacted to come with you?"
"No," he said. "I'm afraid not."
The two friends asked him why not.
He replied "Because they're all at the funeral."
