True Steeler Fan

Standard

A woman Steeler fan had two 50 yard line tickets for the Super Bowl. As she sat down, a man came along and asked her if anyone is sitting in the seat next to her.

“No,” she said, “the seat is empty.”

“This is incredible,” said the man. “Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for a Steeler Super Bowl, the biggest sporting event in the world, and not use it?”

Somberly, the woman says, “Well… the seat actually belongs to me. I was supposed to come here with my husband, but he passed away. This is the first Steeler Super Bowl that we have not been to together since we got married 50 years ago.”

“Oh I’m so sorry to hear that, that’s terrible. But couldn’t you find someone else – a friend or relative or even a neighbor to take the seat?”

The woman shakes her head, “No, they’re all at the funeral.

Thanx, and a tip of the Red Hat to BevP
