Sports Illustrated's Andy Gray has the enviable task of digging through SI's incredible vault of covers and story photographs, posting some of the best images in sports history to Twitter. Today, he called back to a famous 1987 cover listing a ton of then-current Major League Baseball player salaries.
With the Internet now, we have so many resources...

Thanks Mike and smrtmnky, via midnight and here.
As I mentioned yesterday, Kroll Show's eighth episode of its stellar second season aired on Comedy Central last night with a running sketch entitled "Pawnslyvania." The premise was simple...start with those crappy pawn shop reality shows as a base, use the discord between Pennsylvania cities Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and watch comedy ensue. You can watch a snippet...
Thanks to WTAE's Sally Wiggin for this, via Sean. Sally says:
Could not resist tweeting this oh-so-cute pony pic! Meet Miss Quidditch just adopted from a herd at Penn Veterinary
Sally Wiggin and mini ponies are two of the greatest things in Pittsburgh history, the latter being introduced by yours truly and Joey Porter's killer dogs. The former being an absolute...
Good comedic actors rule.
Comedy Central's Kroll Show has had a pretty fantastic second season to this point, and things are only about to get better. Nick Kroll has had some of the finest and most underrated comedic actors on his sketch show over its first two seasons, culminating in perfect performances and just some quality episodes. Guys like Pittsburgh...
Thanks to Chris for this. He says:
I'm going to put this right here for you psamp Thanks to GenoFromPgh for this gem.
And just for today, this feature is partially renamed Mini Me of the Day. It's a Mardi Gras special!
Yesterday, I brought to your attention the Lehigh Valley Ironpigs' new bacon-themed hats and one blog's quest to create food hats for every team in Major League Baseball. It was truly a wonderous endeavor, and nearly every team was adequately represented in some sort of market-specific foodstuffs. For those of us from Pittsburgh, the pierogi placement for the Pirates was...
Thanks to Dawn for this. She says:
That they are. We've posted innumerable pictures and videos of dogs and mini ponies hanging out together (recently this one), but never one of both animals hanging out on a bed together. Seems like the laziest, awesomest Saturday ever.
[i didn't make that typo from the source link, but i sure corrected it]
Yesterday, there were a few apparel-related stories that I wanted to write about, and had to pick which I wanted to put out earlier than the other. Marc-Andre Fleury's Stadium Series Steelers-inspired mask shot out into the ether and went everywhere. You couldn't miss it...just about every major...
Thanks to my friend Domski for this. He says:
read about mini ponies w my students today
So not only are today's youth and tomorrow's world leaders learning about mini ponies, they're also learning how they are much more than just cute and adorable critters. Factor in the service component and you have maybe the world's top animal, Wait, did I just say...
That title is not to downplay the roles of current Steelers number 29 Shamarko Thomas or even classic wearers of that number like Barry Foster. Chidi was the insane special teams playmaker who made that number stand out, and I really just wanted to somehow comine his name with Mar-Andre Fleury's.
I caught this via my friend Sean at Puck Daddy...MAF's 2014 Stadium Series...
Thanks to Brittany for this, randomly from singer Josh Groban. Josh put it on Twitter, saying:
I'm comin' at you like a [mini pony]
Literally the only thing I know about Josh Groban is that he's a singer, and far be it from me to assume how acting like a mini pony helps his singing career. I mean, he's already famous. Maybe he just knows how awesome...
There's an old saying among the car crowds..."Only smart people drive Hondas." The combination of relatively-inexpensive MSRP, fantastic gas mileage and parts that refuse to give out makes the company a true diamond in the rough. While some prefer to pay for the prestige of a luxury name on their automobiles, and in turn pay ridiculous amounts when said luxury parts...
Thanks to Danny and Amy for this, from a variety of those adorable animal Twitter accounts that all routinely post the same pictures.
Now, today in NYC has been a but chilly after a weekend of fantastic warm weather, so it is only appropriate to bundle up and keep cozy. Don't know how to bundle up? Take advice from the pony up top. All you have to do is put something...
Thanks to Dawn for this. She says:
USA! USA! USA! #Sochi2014
The USA women take on Canada in the hockey final today, with USA's men doing the same in the semis tomorrow. Dawn sent this over after yesterday's Team USA men's win over the Czechs, so I'll gladly use this today for some patriotic feelings for the next 48 or so hours.
Thanks to Dawn for this. She says:
I don't know this mini's name, but check out the pink jammies!
I don't even care about the name of the mini pony when it's THIS CUTE AND ADORABLE. Remind me again why we don't dress all animals? Imagine a lion on the plains of Africa wearing a cardigan. Makes any mauling seem awesome.
Thanks to Catlin for this. A while back, Catlin had sent us the ultimate hipster, some paunchy white guy at Lollapalooza in a Jason Worilds jersey a month or so before his breakout 2013 season. What does Catlin have for us today?

In today's Mini Pony of the Day, I hinted at a new major PSAMP redesign happening which was...
Thanks to Muzthetruthspkr for this. He says:
Big Brother is always looking over your shoulder. Don't be a foal, get a privacy screen protector!
So PSAMP posting has been a little sparse lately, as our Bloguin network is dangerously close to a complete redesign and we'll have a flashy newer-looking site shortly. In these times when I'm already mentally...
It's Valentine's Day and my forever-long submission queue has no topical red-and-pink mini ponies from all you guys, so I had to find these myself. Are the two olde tyme cards made out of velvet or something? And what's with the bangs on the mini ponies?
Anyway, I hope you get at least two mini pony-themed Valentine's Day cards from people.
Thanks to Cotter for this, from here.
NYC just got hit with a huge snowstorm so you better believe this submission goes up today. It was meant to be.
Thanks to Heather and Doug for these. With the Olympics underway and the US Hockey team about to go for gold, we might as well go full-on with the red, white and blue.
Thanks to Steve and Chris and Shaina and Charlie and Bob for this, via:
Have you ever seen a miniature horse in a car? Have you ever seen a miniature horse in a box in a car?
My list of mini ponies in cars apparently needs updated. Tremendously.
Thanks to smrtmnky for this. Over the weekend, Animal Planet broadcast Lil Bub's Special Special, featuring the titular perma-kitten, awesome comedian Amy Sedaris and one of my favorite people of all time, Andrew W.K. So basically, it was the greatest group ever assembled even before the mini pony.
What, there was a mini pony too? Go here to catch the outtake video that the...
Thanks to Doug for this. He says:
could you imagine taking this picture?
Oh man there's no chance I even hold the camera straight to get a clear shot before I'm charging straight at them ready to hug.

Thanks (?) to Maggie and Michael for the heads up on this, taken by Fred and tweeted out by Darren Rovell.
Pony at Seahawks parade
We actually caught this mini pony, named Wilson, shortly after the NFC Championship game. And I hate that Seattle is trying to discover their own version of PSAMP with this whole situation, but I gotta publish this so we can all move on...
