A man stopped on his way to a college football game and purchased a new revolver. The game was very exciting and the man had an excellent seat, but all he could think about was his new gun. The score was tied at the beginning of the fourth quarter. The man left his seat to stand in the tunnel connecting the spectator stands with the area housing the concession stands and the exits.
