Bowling has the 300 game (odds: 1 in 11,500), baseball has the perfect game (only 14 ever recorded), and tennis has the golden set (achieved only once) -- all are feckless losers in the face of Florence Sturt of St Ignace, Michigan, who was dealt her 2nd (!) perfect cribbage hand while playing with her son-in-law last week. Odds: 1 in 216,580.

Even more astounding are the odds that so little was going on in St Ignace that this story would make the paper...
