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 2-20-14

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. USA.

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. All you have to do is put something...

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...

Mini Pony of the Day 2-25-14

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 I've...

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...

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 "maybe?"

I Would Wear a Pirates Pierogies Hat

[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...

Mini Pony of the Day 2-27-14

Thanks to Dawn for this. She says: Just chillin' 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. Video below:

Better Pittsburgh Pirates Food Hats

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 with some sort of market-specific foodstuffs. For those of us from Pittsburgh, the pierogi placement for the Pirates was...

Great Moments In Unlicensed Pittsburgh Sports Merch: St. Pitt-rick's Day

Thanks to Doug for this. He says: unlicensed merch, holiday edition. What a way to kick this feature back into gear. The unlicensed merch game on PSAMP has been dormant for far too long. Not for lack of submissions, just from my own sloth. Doug gives us a great way to cap off our St. Patrick's Day celebration on PSAMP, after the holiday-themed mini pony published...

The Flyers Follow Mark Sanchez On Twitter

Our Pittsburgh Penguins kick off a two-day home-and-home series with the hated divisional Philadelphia Flyers tomorrow at the Wells Fargo Center. Sunday, the series shifts to CONSOL and the comfy confines of a home crowd. With such a series this late in the season, and with Philly hanging around on the positive side of the playoff bubble in the Eastern Conference, I tried to...

Mini Pony of the Day 3-11-14

Thanks to Muzthetruthspkr for this. He says: Mini Shaq on a mini pony. If I looked like a skinny version of Shaq, I'd probably spend my day comically riding the smallest things possible, too. A mini pony is just a natural progression.

Thanks to Dawn for this. She sent it a while back and if you go to the Singapore Zoo now this event is over, but I still have to ducument it for posterity. This is one of the downfalls of receiving unlimited mini pony submissions from readers. Visitors to the Singapore Zoo will be able to catch miniature horses trotting in the park from Friday onwards.

Every Pittsburgh Sports and Culture Reference on Kroll Show's "Pawnsylvania" Sketch

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...
