Thanks to Carol for this. She says: my aunt bought a box of old books with these pics in the bottom! Antique mini ponies! yeoldeksxhbckxkd That is just tremendous.

Mini Pony of the Day 1-23-15

Thanks to Caitlin for this, via Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson. Jeremy says: Doubtless the Mirror will say I shat on the floor and then blamed it on the horse. Awww, no need to poo-shame the mini pony. I mean, the foremost authority on this subject even includes a horse butt: Get real.

Thanks to Scotty Don’t and PensBoozeAnger for this. The latter just sent in a tip while the former actually provided a picture. Scotty says: this is actually happening. Mini horse pulling contest. PA farm show. The pull happened last week on the 13th, but I’m PSAMPing at my own speed. If they have a 20-29 inch class I will explode.

Mini Pony of the Day 1-12-15

Thanks to my friends at TiqIQ for this. They say: mini donkeys and dogs at @bigapplecircus Since PSAMP has come back from hiatus, we’ve been all about awesome animals riding other animals (1, 2), so why not continue the trend with dogs and mini donkeys as well? This isn’t an ad, but remember to use TiqIQ for your ticket needs. I love them and they are my favorite. And they send...

All Those Jerome Bettis GIFs

If you weren’t around Twitter today, you missed literally every Jerome Bettis GIF. News broke yesterday that Bettis was once again up for the Hall of Fame, so I made one GIF, remembered just how good Bettis was in his career and kept going with the animated goodness. But besides, all you missed were witty remarks like this: Other Coach: Stop Bettis. Linebacker: lmao Other Linebacker...

Mini Pony of the Day 1-7-15

Thanks to spencemo for this. Only a handful of days into PSAMP’s 2015 schedule and we’ve already had a few submissions from her. And not a moment too late…it totally one-ups Monday’s dog and mini pony, if only for the video and tricks! Now not only do I need to get one or multiple mini pon(ies), but now I need to get a rambunctious dog who can interact with said pon(ies...

Mario Cuomo Was a Pirate

Yesterday, progressive icon and former New York governor Mario Cuomo passed away at age 82. Many, many well-deserved words will be written about Cuomo, few of which will remember him as a kid signed to the Pittsburgh Pirates. So we’ll do that here, instead. A few months before his 20th birthday in 1952, Cuomo signed as an outfielder with the Pittsburgh Pirates, garnering a $2...

Thanks to spencemo for this. She says: Aw ****, psamp… They made a Minion beanie for Mister Buddy! I know we haven’t been around much lately, so the first mini pony of 2015, and our first one post-hiatus is our old friend Mister Buddy. I’ve never watched Despicable Me, but if they had mini ponies in it I would have seen it at the theater every day and then pirated it off The...

2014 Sucked

Oh. Hi. How’ve you been? It’s been awhile since we last chatted here, and I’d love to know where you’ve been in the time since. Has life been good to you? Me? Well, thanks for asking! Life has been a thing. A brief timeline: PSAMP celebrated its seventh birthday back in March, and I wrote one of the most honest and heartfelt pieces about what you, the readers, mean to me...

Schedule provides for plenty of opportunity for Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers were floundering heading into week eight. They played just three good minutes of football in a week seven win and even at 4-3, experts were talking as if Mike Tomlin’s crew was in serious trouble. They responded with a 51-34 thrashing of the Colts in week eight. Then last week, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger added another six touchdowns in a 43-23 win over...

Pittsburgh Panthers Preview vs. Georgia Tech

The Pittsburgh Panthers will host the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets this Saturday at Heinz Field in what could be an essential elimination game for the ACC Coastal Division title. Pittsburgh is favored by a mere three points in the game for what should be a very compelling game. Currently, the average price for Pittsburgh Panthers tickets is just $44, according to Barrys Tickets, so...

Browns ticket prices double when Steelers come to FirstEnergy Stadium Sunday

This Sunday the Cleveland Browns will host the Pittsburgh Steelers at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio in a rematch from week 1 when the Steelers barely held on to a 30-27 win at Heinz Field after a squandering a 27-3 halftime lead.  With that win Pittsburgh won their fourth straight and 20 of 22 meetings with the Browns as the Steelers will go for five in a row over Cleveland...

Steelers tickets 10% below season average for Falcons game

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had an interesting start to the 2014 season, as they held off a surging Browns team in Week 1, got crushed by the Ravens in Week 2 and dominated the Panthers in Week 3. Needless to say, it’s hard to gauge exactly what kind of team Steelers fans have so far. While it’s been an up and down ride, the good news is that Pittsburgh is 2-1 and should be...

When Steelers travel to Carolina on Sunday, Panthers tickets are going for 18% above average

The Carolina Panthers were supposed to take a step back in 2014. They lost most of their wide receivers, Cam Newton had ankle surgery and he even went into Week 1 with cracked ribs. Two weeks later, those same Panthers are building off of their 2013 momentum with a 2-0 start. In fact, they enter their Week 3 home battle against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a real shot at getting...

Mini Pony of the Day 2-19-14

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.

Mini Pony of the Day 2-24-14

  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 bit 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.

Kris Letang Can Buy 3,742 Honda Fits Over The Next Eight Years

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 fail, Honda owners...

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 I've become by associating...

Marc-AnChidi Fleurywuoma

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 combine his name with Marc-Andre Fleury's. I caught this via my friend Sean at Puck Daddy…MAF's 2014 Stadium Series helmet...
