At least they’re the good seats…

MOUNT LEBANON, Pa. – Paul Wellener’s family found the perfect marker for his grave: two blue plastic seats from the Three Rivers Stadium auction. Wellener, a lifelong football fan and a Pittsburgh Steelers season ticket holder for 42 years, died unexpectedly on March 16. Wellener’s son, Paul, and widow, Mary Ann, bought three pairs of stadium seats for $2,100 at an auction and knew they had found the perfect gravestone.

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. – Expect a big birthday party next year in the Greco household. Suzanne and Michael Greco celebrated their shared birthday Saturday by welcoming their first child, 8-pound, 8-ounce Maxwell Allen Greco. “We’re wondering what the odds are of having the whole family born on the same day,” said Vicki Greco, Michael’s mother. “It’s just amazing.”

BURLINGTON, Wis. – Gordon Zwicky’s outrageous tale about his trip to Florida earned him top honors in this year’s Burlington Liars Club contest. Zwicky, 72, beat out 299 other entries from 31 states and Canada. Zwicky claimed he and his wife, Dorothy, won the lottery and decided to drive to Florida. Their neighbor told them they would be fine as long as they paid attention to the road signs. “Thirty miles from home they saw a sign stating, ‘Clean Restrooms Ahead.’ Two months later they arrived in Florida,” the tale read. By that time, they had cleaned 450 restrooms using 267 rolls of paper towels, three cases of bowl cleaner and 86 bottles of Windex.
