I was enjoying some once in a lifetime seats for a football playoff game when I got an urgent call from the wife saying her mom had been hit by a bus and has only hours to live.

Fifteen minutes later I'm at the hospital and the wife's hugging me, "Thank you darling, I'm so sorry you'll miss your football game."

"Don't worry honey, I wouldn't miss this, I'm taping it and I'll watch it later."

God knows why she got so upset when I started setting up the camcorder.
