Two old men, Abe and Sol, are sitting on a park bench, feeding pigeons, and talking about baseball. Abe turns to Sol and asks, "Do you think there's baseball in Heaven?"
Sol thinks about it for a minute and replies, "I dunno. But let's make a deal -- if I die first, I'll come back and tell you, and if you die first, you do the same."
They shake on it and sadly, a few months later, poor Abe passes on. Soon afterwards, Sol is sitting in the park feeding the pigeons by himself when he hears a voice whisper, "Sol... Sol... ." Sol responds, "Abe! Is that you?"
"Yes it is, Sol," whispers Abe's ghost.
"Oh I did miss you, my friend, but tell me: is there baseball in Heaven?"
"Well," says Abe, "I've got good news and bad news."
"Gimme the good news first," says Sol.
Abe says, "Yes, there is baseball in Heaven."
Sol says, "That's awesome! What news could be bad enough to ruin that?"
"You're pitching on Friday."
Funny short religious joke
