Goes Back, b'y   The Hockey Fan

Author: Alan Levine

It's game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, and a man makes his way to his seat right at center ice. He sits down, noticing that the seat next to him is empty. He leans over and asks his neighbor if someone will be sitting there.

"No, bye." says the neighbor. "Dat seat is empty."

"This is incredible", said the man. "Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the final game of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and not use it?"

The neighbor says "Well, me son, actually, dat seat belongs to me and I was suppose to come with me wife, but she passed away. Dis is the first Stanley Cup that we haven't been together since we got married in 1976."

"Oh..... I'm 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 man shakes his head "No. They're all at the funeral."
