A True Bears Fan

January 24th 2007

As the Super Bowl, featuring Da Bears and Colts, nears, I’ve been receiving a handful of emails referencing the Da Bears and I’ll be sharing some of these emails with short stories in my blog posts from time-to-time.

Here’s one email I received titled a “True Bears Fan.”

A man had 50 yard line tickets for the Bear’s game. As he sits down a 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 Bears game, the biggest sporting event in the world, and not use it?”

He says, “Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first Bears game we haven’t been to together since we got married in 1967.”

“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.”
