What Are The Odds?

Talk about unlucky.


On Wednesday during the Principal Charity Classic pro-am golf tournament at the Glen Oaks Country Club, actor Rob Lowe put a ball into the air and struck a small goldfinch in mid-flight. When The Principal analysts worked out the numbers, Lowe had accidentally accomplished something against 240 million-to-one odds when he struck the small bird.


“We told Rob participating our inaugural event would be a great feather in his cap, but we didn’t realize he’d take it so seriously,” said Barry Griswell, chairman and CEO of The Principal.


There is no video of Lowe's shot, but that won't stop me. A few years ago Randy Johnson struck a bird in mid-flight with a pitch.


Enjoy.
