A good man died and went to heaven
"Cause that's where good men go.
St. Peter said, "You've been so good
You get one last wish you know."

The good man thought and finally spoke,
"I'm glad to be at Heaven's Gate
But if I'd mis-behaved I wonder
What would have been my fate?"

St. Peter said, "I'll bend the rule
And let you take a look.
But only because you've been so good
Not one bad mark in your book."

St. Peter pushed with all his might
And moved a bright red cloud
The man looked down. Gave a gasp
And shouted right out aloud.

"Why, it's a Winter Wonderland!
It's even snowing there!
Pete peeked himself then he jumped up
And flew through heaven's air.

"Wait "til I tell the Boss of this.
He'll have a million queries.
He'll want to know just how the hell
The Red Sox won The World Series!"

(If you don't know about "The Curse Of The Bambino" You're not a New Englander.)

Yes Ted, I know the curse of the "Bambino."
When he left Boston all hope went with him for a pennant. This is a neat story that tickles the funny bone. Bill Murray
