Okay, I'm a major pro football fan. But it IS World Series time, so here's
one for you baseball people. Enjoy:

There were two old guys, Abe and Sol, sitting on a bench in a
park feeding pigeons and talking about baseball, just like they
did every day.

Abe turns to Sol and says, "Do ya think there's baseball in heaven?"

Soloman thinks about it for a minute and replies, "I dunno, Abe.
But let's make a deal: If I die first, I will come back and tell you -- and
if you die first, you come back and tell me -- if there is baseball
in heaven. Deal?"

They shake on it and, sadly, a few months later poor Abe
passes on.

One day soon afterward, Sol is sitting there feeding the
pigeons by himself when he hears a voice whisper, "Sol... Sol...."

Sol responds, "Abe! Is that you?"

"Yes it is Sol," whispers the spirit of Abe.

Sol, still amazed, asks, "So, is there baseball in heaven?"

"Well," says Abe, "I got good news and I got bad news."

"Gimme the good news first," says Sol.

Abe says, "Well... there is baseball in heaven."

Sol says, "That's great! What news could be bad enough to ruin

Abe sighs and whispers, "You're pitching on Friday."
