Two buddies, Bob and Earl, were
two of the biggest baseball fans in America.
Their entire adult lives, Bob and
Earl discussed baseball history in the winter, and they pored over
every box score during the season. They went to sixty games a
year. They even agreed that whoever died first would try to come
back and tell the other if there was baseball in heaven.
One summer night, Bob passed away
in his sleep after watching the Yankee victory earlier in the
evening. He died happy.
A few nights later, his buddy
Earl awoke to the sound of Bob's voice from beyond.
"Bob is that you?" Earl asked.
"Of course it's me," Bob replied.
"This is unbelievable!" Earl
exclaimed. "So tell me, is there baseball in heaven?"
"Well I have some good news and
some bad news for you. Which do you want to hear first?"
"Tell me the good news first."
"Well, the good news is that yes,
there is baseball in heaven, Earl."
"Oh, that is wonderful! So what
could possibly be the bad news?"
"You're pitching tomorrow night."
