Lemieux Voted "Best Western PA Athlete" By Local Station

Good news for hockey fans in Western Pennsylvania! The local television station WTAE-TV asked for nominations on "the best western PA athlete". With some of the more famous players on the list, they took a poll and found that Mario Lemieux was the best athlete.

Wait a minute! He's not from Pittsburgh!! I guess the station wasn't specific in it's rules or qualifications. WWE Superstar Kurt Angle took second place in the opinion poll. Native of Ohio, Ben Roethlisberger also made the list of 10. I guess it shows you that the city can adopt their star athletes as being honorary citizens.
