TWO old men - Bert and Sid - were sitting on a park bench.
Bert turns to Sid and says, "Do you think there are football teams in Heaven?"
Sid thinks for a minute and replies: "I don't know, mate, but let's make a deal. Whichever of us dies first has to come back and tell the other if there's any football in Heaven."
They shake on it, and, sadly, a few months later, poor Bert passes on.
Some days afterwards, Sid is sitting in the park when he hears a voice whisper,
Sid responds,"Bert! Is that you?"
"Yes, it is," whispers the spirit of Bert.
Sid, still amazed, asks, "So there is football in Heaven?"
"Well," whispers Bert, "I've got good news and bad news."
"Give me the good news first," says Sid.
Bert whispers,"Well, there is football in Heaven."
Sid asks, "And what's the bad news?"
Bert sighs and whispers,"You're playing next Saturday."
