The perfect Super Bowl seat

Rod received a free ticket to Super Bowl XL from his company. Unfortunately, when Rod arrived at the stadium, he discovered that the seat was in the very last row in the corner of the stadium. He was closer to the Goodyear Blimp than the field!

About halfway through the first quarter, Rod noticed that there was an empty seat just ten rows off the field, right on the 50-yard line. He decided to take a chance and made his way through the stadium and around the security guards to the empty seat. As he sat down, he asked the gentleman sitting next to him, "Excuse me, is anyone sitting here?"

The man said, "No."

Very excited to be in such a great seat for the game, Rod exclaimed, "This is incredible! Who in their right mind would have a seat like this at the Super Bowl and not use it?"

The man replied, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first Super Bowl we have not been to together since we got married in 1967."

"That is really sad," said Rod. "But still, couldn't you find someone to take the seat? A relative or a close friend?"

"No," replied the man. "They are all at the funeral."
