  • Two 90 year old men, Mike and Joe, have been friends all of their
    lives..
    When it's clear that Joe is dying, Mike visits him every day.
     
    One day Mike says, 'Joe, we both loved rugby all our lives, and we
    played rugby on Saturdays together for so many years.  Please do me one
    favour, when you get to Heaven, somehow you must let me know if there's
    rugby there.'
     
    Joe looks up at Mike from his death bed,' Mike, you've been my best
    friend for many years. If it's at all possible, I'll do this favour for
    you.
    Shortly after that, Joe passes on.
     
    At midnight a couple of nights later, Mike is awakened from a sound
    sleep  by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling out to
    him,  'Mike-Mike!'
     
     
    'Who is it? Asks Mike sitting up suddenly. 'Who is it?'
     
    'Mike-it's me, Joe.'
     
    'You're not Joe. Joe just died.'
     
    'I'm telling you, it's me, Joe,' insists the voice.'
     
    'Joe! Where are you?'
     
    'In heaven', replies Joe. 'I have some really good news and a little bad
    news.'
     
    'Tell me the good news first,' says Mike.
     
    The good news,' Joe says,' is that there's rugby in heaven. Better yet,
    all of our old friends who died before us are here, too. Better than
    that,  we're all young again. Better still, it's always spring time and
    it never rains  or snows. And best of all, we can play rugby all we
    want, and we never get tired.'
     
    'That's fantastic,' says Mike. 'It's beyond my wildest dreams! So what's
    the bad news?'
     
    'You're in the team for Tuesday . . .'
