Old Joke #27


A man walks up to the ticket window at Heinz Field.

“I’d like two tickets to see the Steelers in the playoffs,” he says.

“I’m sorry, sir,” says the ticket agent. “The Steelers didn’t make the playoffs this year.”

The next day, the man returns.

“I’d like two tickets to see the Steelers in the playoffs.”

“I told you yesterday, sir,” says the ticket agent. “The Steelers didn’t make the playoffs this year.”

Every day for the next two weeks, the man returns, with the same request. Finally, after fourteen days of this routine, the ticket agent loses it.

“Why do you keep asking me for tickets?” he yells. “Pittsburgh didn’t make the playoffs this year!”

The man smiles.

“I know,” he says. “I’ve been driving here from Cincinnati every day, just to hear you say that.”

(Which is the kind of stuff you have to enjoy if you're going to be a Bengals fan.)

  2. My hubby is a die hard Steelers fan.

    It's been a tough week in our house. Although I did learn some new swear words during the last few weeks of the season.

  6. Forgive me for rewriting:

    “Why do you keep asking me for tickets?” he yells. “Cincinnati didn’t make the playoffs this year!”

    The man smiles.

    “I know,” he says. “I’ve been driving here from the New York Jets every day, just to hear you say that.”

  12. Great joke! I'm surprised: I literally learned how to read from old joke books (my father is a comedian by trade, so...), and I'm not sure I'd heard this one before. Must be because I know nothing about sports.
