Soccer maniac

A man had two suite tickets for the Euro2004 Cup final Greece Vs Portugal.

As he sits down, another man comes down and asks if anyone is sitting in the seat next to him. "No," he says. "The seat is empty." "This is incredible!" said the man. "Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the best game of Euro 2004, the biggest sporting event in the world, and not use it?" He says, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me.

My wife was supposed to come with me, but she passed away. This is the first European Cup Final we haven't been to together since we got married."

"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 her funeral."
