A man’s encounter with a fellow sports lover at a football finals shows just how deep the love of the game could run. The discovery, which makes for a good laugh, would certainly leave anyone stumped.
One day, a man shows up at the stadium to watch the AFL Grand Finale, bearing his tickets. He quickly found his seat at a good spot and sat down in anticipation of the big game.
However, just as the playoffs began, another man rushed forward and took the empty seat right next to him. As he did so, he asked the first man if the seat was taken. He replied:
“No. The seat is empty.”
After settling into the empty seat, the second man could not believe his luck, as he managed to snag one of the best seats around despite purchasing his tickets late.
“That’s incredible,” he voiced. “Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the NFL final and not use it?”
The first man gave the intruder a long stare before finally admitting the empty seat actually belonged to him. He explained further:
“I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first grand final we haven’t been to together since we got married in 1967.”
Understanding the man’s sorrow, the stranger could not help but sympathize with him, offering some words of comfort. After a while, he turned to the man again and asked curiously:
“Your loss is terrible. But couldn’t you find someone else – a friend or relative, or even a neighbor – to take the seat?”
The first man shook his head, before replying:
“No. They are all at the funeral!”
Three Men Meet Saint Peter At The Pearly Gates
One fateful day, three men, Frank, Ron, and Steve, died and found themselves at the Pearly Gates. Soon, Saint Peter approached the trio, who were all avid golfers, and explained that the Pearly gates opened into the most beautiful golf course they’d ever seen.
Hearing they could still enjoy their favorite sports in the afterlife, the three men looked visibly happy. However, St. Peter proceeded to explain they needed a set of clubs to be able to walk through the gates.
To earn the clubs, each man had to answer a question sincerely, and the gravity of their response would determine the type of club they got. After explaining, Peter turned to the first man and asked:
“How many times did you cheat on your spouse?”
Frank lowered his head in shame as he replied:
“About a dozen times.”
Peter shook his head in disappointment and said:
“If you are sorry for your infidelity, I will grant you access to this heavenly course and some golf clubs.”
Falling to his knees, the man said:
“Oh, I am very sorry.”
Sensing his remorse, St Peter offered him a bag of old wooden golf clubs. He then threw the same question to the second man, who admitted to cheating on his wife twice.
Ron acknowledged his mistake, expressing how sorry he was to have been unfaithful. Moved by his sincerity, Peter nodded and handed the man a bag of gently used Titleist clubs.
Steve stepped forward and got asked the same question as the other two. Beaming with pride, the third man responded:
“I have never been unfaithful.”
Saint Peter looked impressed as he handed Steve a brand new set of Callaways, before proceeding to let the three men through the gates.
As the three men enjoyed their favorite game, Steve suddenly collapsed to the ground, sobbing helplessly. Confused, the other two approached him and asked:
“Dude, what’s going on? You were faithful and you have the nicest set of clubs on the course. What could possibly be bothering you this much?”
Struggling to speak amid sobs, Steve replied:
“I just saw my wife out on the course!”
“That’s great,” muttered Ron, seeing no reason why it should not be considered good news. Steve quickly interjected:
“No, it’s not!!! She was playing golf with a pool cue and a hockey stick!”
