Big Lead Sports Bar



When the highlight of the Pirates' season is the broadcaster getting two holes-in-one during a single round of golf, that usually means that it's been a long season. But Steve Blass did just that Thursday at a Pirates Alumni golf outing at Greensburg CC, where he aced the 7th and 15th holes. According to Golf Digest magazine, the odds of such a feat are one in 67 million, proving Lloyd Christmas right - you're saying there's a chance.

For his accomplishments, Blass took home a computer and a $500 credit card gift card, although he said he's "never even used a computer" and that the shots "cost him $400 in the bar". Blass had a previous ace in 1996 at a now-defunct course in Florida.


In other local golf news, the term "shotgun start" was given a whole new meaning at the beautiful Linden Hall in historic Dawson, Fayette County, where a foursome was robbed by a man who appeared out of the woods bearing a rifle. It goes without saying that no one in their foursome recorded two holes-in-one during the round.
