Pittsburgh pierogi dives, comes up just short in photo finish

Your dad always told you that anything worth doing is worth doing right. One of the pierogies racing at Pittsburgh's PNC Park apparently took that adage to heart, as evidenced by the fact that he laid out in one of the more spectacular finishes we've seen all year.

Cheese Chester looked like he had a comfortable lead, but pulled a DeSean Jackson and showboated right at the line. He attempts a dive, but comes up well short of the finish. Then, the next two pierogies come in neck-and-neck, both laying out for the incredible photo finish. Potato Pete came through with the win:
