Two old guys, Joe and Sam, are sitting on a park bench feeding birds and talking about football, like they do every day. Joe turns to Sam and says, "Do you think there's football in heaven?"Sam thinks about it for a minute and replies, "I dunno. But let's make a deal: if I die first, I'll come back and tell you if there's football in heaven, and if you die first, you do the Joee." They shake on it and sadly, a few months later, poor Abe passes on. One day soon afterward, Sam is sitting there feeding the birds by himself when he hears a voice whisper, "Sam... Sam..." Sam responds, "Joe! Is that you?" "Yes it is, Sam," whispers Joe's ghost. Sam, still amazed, asks, "So, is there football in heaven?" "Well," says Joe, "I've got good news and bad news." "Gimme the good news first," says Sam. Joe says, "Well... there is football in heaven." Sam says, "That's great! What news could be bad enough to ruin that!?" Joe sighs and whispers, "You're pitching on Friday."
