Two old men, Bob and Jack, were sitting on a park bench feeding the pigeons and talking about baseball.
Bob turned to Jack and asked “Do you think there’s baseball in Heaven?”
Jack thought about it for a minute and replied “I don’t know… “
“but let’s make a deal… “
“if I die first I’ll come back and tell you if there’s baseball in Heaven and if you die first you do the same.”
So they shook on it.
Sadly a few months later poor Bob passed away.
Soon afterward Jack was sitting in the park feeding the pigeons by himself and heard a voice whisper…
” Hey Jack,
Hey Jack… “
Jack replied “Bob is that you?”
“Yes it is” whispered Bob’s ghost.
Jack still amazed asked “So is there baseball in Heaven?”
“Well” said Bob “I’ve got some good news and some bad news.”
“Give me the good news first” Jack said excitedly.
“Well” said Bob “there really is baseball in Heaven.”
Jack says “That’s great! What could possibly be the bad news?”
Bob sighs and whispers…
“You’re pitching on Friday.”
