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 you think there's baseball in

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

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 says, "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 that!?" 

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