Seasons of good intentions

An alleged true story from an Arsenal season-ticket holder: his position last year was an absolute plum, halfway up Highbury’s main stand, close to halfway. After the first few games of the season it became apparent that despite all home games being sell-outs, the two seats on his left were always empty. This continued until just after Christmas, when a guy and his young son appeared. Asked if he knew why the seats had been empty, he said: “Tell me about it. It was a lovely present. The wife bought me and my son season tickets – and gave them to us for Christmas.”
