Old Married Couples

I have a sweet story about an old elderly couple. At every Atlanta Thrashers game they do a segment during the commercial breaks where they play Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On."  They spotlight couples in the crowd and they kiss on the screen. Every game, there is an elderly couple (who must be season ticket holders) who must be near their 80's. They are a beautiful old couple and every game they are spotlighted and kiss during the segment on the big screen. Everyone goes wild and cheers. It always brings tears to my eyes. They embody to me the true meaning of love transcending many years together!

Oh and at the end of the segment, they find 2 guys from the opposing team and it cracks every one up.

You gotta love it.
