Nice solution!

The only other thing that came to mind was using Date::Manip to recognize and parse the date. I haven't used it in a long time, but when I did I remember one of it's strengths is being able to recognize dates formatted in many different ways. The one drawback was that it was slow if using it to parse LOTS of dates. Just something to think about.
