Two pilots in their 50's, Pedro and Juan, have been the best of friends since flying school days. Unfortunately, Pedro was diagnosed with terminal cancer and was given a month to live.
Juan went to visit his dying friend and said: PEDRO, I KNOW YOU & I ARE BASKETBALL FANATICS. SHOULD YOU GO I'D WANT YOU TO VISIT ME AND TELL ME IF THERE'S BASKETBALL IN HEAVEN. Pedro feebledly agreed.
Sure enough Pedro died as scheduled.
One Monday midnight, Juan was awakened by a strong gush of wind and a blinding flash of light. He heard a voice calling: JUAN WAKE UP, IT'S ME PEDRO. I CAME AS PROMISED. Juan couldn't believe what he was experiencing. After getting back to his senses, Juan trembling asked Pedro: SO, DID YOU FIND OUT IF THEY HAVE BASKETBALL IN HEAVEN?
Pedro replied: JUAN, I HAVE GOOD NEWS & BAD NEWS FOR YOU.
Juan then said: WELL, GIVE ME THE GOOD ONE FIRST.
Pedro replied: YES MY FRIEND, WE BOTH CAN PLAY BASKETBALL IN HEAVEN.
Elated Juan then asked: SO, WHAT'S THE BAD NEWS?
Pedro replied: You will be JOINING me in the team this coming Saturday!
