I Guess He Forgot to Knock on Wood

You know how you cringe when hearing someone say "I've never had an accident?" We tend to assume people are jinxing themselves when they make pronouncements of that sort. Well, ever since VISA started running commercials of the four jerks bragging about never missing attending the Superbowl football game I've been waiting to hear that one of them missed their flight this year. Well, wasn't a missed flight, but one of the four guys won't be there tomorrow.
Family members say 79-year-old Robert Cook, of Brown Deer, Wis., is hospitalized and has sent his two daughters to Dallas instead. Cook's wife, Sarah, tells The Associated Press they were packed and ready to go Thursday, but her husband became very weak and ended up in the hospital. Sarah Cook says her husband is very depressed that he was unable to make it to Dallas.

Robert Cook and three other men who've been to every Super Bowl since 1967 created the "Never Missed a Super Bowl Club" and gained recognition in a recent Visa credit card commercial.
Get well soon, but you're no longer a member of the club.

Karma is a funny thing, ain't it?

Looks like the club is down to three, unless some other hard charger steps up.
