Thanks to Dawn for this, which she sent over on Thanksgiving but we're using now as a belated holiday blessing.
I mean, Thanksgiving was less than a week ago and we've only published ONE mini pony here on PSAMP since, so we can still slip this November holiday picture into early December. PLUS LOOK AT HOW ADORABLE TICO AND ZIPPY ARE.
Big thanks to my bud Lowell for sending this over. He caught it at CONSOL Energy Center during Islanders-Penguins two weeks ago when Sidney Crosby notched his 250th career goal. And since the Pens play the Isles in Hempstead tonight, we might as well relive this horror.
I don't even know where to begin with this maybe Gabe's had a sale
Thanks (?) to Amanda and SportsnWhatnot and Spenser and Cory and Blake and Patrick for this, from The Atlantic.
These headless, miniature pony robots are the future of military tech
I put that question mark in there because I'm not sure how well this will go over when one day in the immediate future we are all inevitable slaves of the T-1000 mini pony army. Then...
There are a number of reasons why I waited four days to publish a recap of the Steelers' most recent game against the Baltimore Ravens while the football-mad readers likely gorged on the post-game writeups at some of my more immediate colleagues like so much stuffing and turkey.
To start, there was the loss itself, and my own emotional hell during such happenings. We also...
To be fair, QB Bobby Layne, (then) of the Steelers, is far from the only one in this incredible LIFE Magazine photograph from 1961. Photographer Ralph Morse was able to get every starting QB in the league together for a once-in-a-lifetime shot. But since this is a Pittsburgh sports blog, we gotta focus on what we do best.
That's Layne near the back-left, in the #22 Black...
Thanks to Gracie for these. She says:
evidently mini ponies are a requirement for this town's holiday parade!
This goes hand-in-hand with yesterday's Pittsburgh parade mini ponies. Yes, Thanksgiving is tomorrow and we should all be getting real with turkeys and pilgrams and whatnot, but if cities are gonna have early holiday parades and feature...
The Pittsburgh Penguins have played 25 games so far in the 2013-14 season. Former longtime-Penguin Rob Scuderi was featured in the first 11 games of the season in his return from a four-year stint in Los Angeles, but he has now missed 14-straight games with a broken ankle. That ankle required surgery, and Scuds is still out indefinitely. Frowny face.
The only upside is that the...
Thanks to Steve for this tip on the parade and Contenta for the above pic. Steve had given the heads up about Saturday's downtown 4th Annual Trib Total Media Candlelight Horse-drawn Carriage Parade potentially featuring mini ponies. From the link:
The stunning line-up includes horses of all sizes from majestic Clydesdales to adorable miniatures and mounted riders, along...
The Steelers humiliated the Browns.
That barely-there introductory "paragraph" is indicitive of not only how irrelevant the Browns were in this game, but also how quickly it must be forgotten with a huge Thanksgiving Day tilt against the Ravens looming in a few days. We're getting right into this because we're already close to kickoff.
Thanks to my friend Cara for this. She says:
At Aunt's house for dinner and thought you might appreciate this Steelers memorabilia. It's a bar of soap.:)
Now, a more poetically-inclined individual might point out the greater meaning of this Steelers bar of soap. About how with two divisional games against Cleveland and Baltimore in the next six days, Pittsburgh...
Thanks to Noah for this. He says:
Although, not a mini horse, the mini zebu should be an apt substitute.
Considering yesterday we used a mini baby donkey in this spot normally reserved for mini ponies, it's only right to end the week with some othe completely random mini animal. I had never heven heard of a zebu before I got this email from Noah. Now to immediately...
Last week, Volvo unveiled an incredible commercial for their new truck Dynamic Steering technology featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme performing a split between two backwards-moving vehicles. I loved it, you loved it and everyone in the world has pretty much clicked or watched. It is truly one of the best videos ever filmed, advertisement or not.
Now thanks to my Benstonium friends...
Thanks to walterflanagan for this fluffy baby mini donkey from CuteEmergency. He says:
attn: psamp As a wise man once said, "get real asdhfkskajkaks"
That wise man was me, or at least walterflanagan impersonating me. Because even though mini donkeys are not mini ponies, they still might be the second-most often adorable animal featured in this daily spot....
Thanks to KISS FM's Mikey for this. He says:
here’s a corgi on a mini pony psamp
Man, considering this website's titular animal as well as the Internet's love for Corgis, the World Wide Web might explode and cease to exist after this picture gets out there. I'm both sorry and not sorry at the same time. I have a job to do.
We've caught that little tool Justin Bieber wearing Steelers hats twice, both in early 2012 (1, 2). Since that time, the Steelers have gone a combined 12-14...8-8 in 2012 and 4-6 to this point in the 2013 season. I blame him entirely for the mediocrity.
Big things happened this past fall with the Pittsburgh Pirates ending a streak of 20 consecutive losing seasons, making...
Thanks to Muzthetruthspkr for this. He says:
feel free to caption accordingly
This seems more like a regular-sized horse pony, but with an Asian man towering over it, we'll gladly accept it into the "mini pony" life. I'm not entirely sure if this guy is marrying or going to prom with the pony and that's not really the point. He has a horse for...
The Steelers gave up 27 points in a quarter and won.
Despite giving up 27 points in a 15-minute span, the Steelers won a footbal game.
The Steelers overcame a 27-point second quarter Detroit outburst to win a football game.
DUDE WHAT HAPPENED IN THE SECOND QUARTER OF THAT STEELERS WIN?!
What I'm illustrating above is that there's a terrific...

Just press play on the below video and game yourself into the weekend. And make any applicable Jayson Megna Megna Man pun.
Thanks to Dawn for this. She says:
psamp, check out this guy... He looks like he is wearing furry footie pajamas! His name is Snip a de Boogie!
Now all I can think of are these Steelers dog pajamas. Plus, with many mini ponies being about dog-sized, we could really encapsulate this website's entire name in one truly amazing picture. Oh, the possibilites.
I was talking with an acquaintance named Dante last night when he brought up Jack Kerouac's fantasy baseball league and I had to get more information of the Pittsburgh team because I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.
The league's teams were named after cars or colors. For example, the Cincinnati Blacks and Boston Grays were two...
Thanks to walterflanagan for this. He says:
Uhhh, psamp, I think you need to see this. No explanation is really needed.
Frankly, an explanation would've only lessened the impact of this picture. We can only pretend to know what cowboy dog and mini pony get into on a daily basis. TV-show worthy, definitely.
Thanks to Britt for this. It comes from a now-defunct "cute things" Twitter account. And believe me, I have no idea why anyone would get rid of a "cute things" Twitter account. Those are the best. They said:
The happiest little goat.
Little fluffy baby goats are always awesome. Get one that smiles like so and we're in a whole new stratosphere...
First off...I COMPLETELY APOLOGIZE for posting an image of the harshest moment in semi-recent Pirates memory. It hurt me just uploading it to my site as much as it likely pains you to see it again.
Now on to more important findings. Deadspin has compiled a list of random and unique responses that fans have gotten from athletes. Some expectant-father Braves fan received an autographed...
Thanks to my bud Joshua for this. He says:
mini ponies psamp go steelers
This marks just the second mini pony Vine of PSAMP. Which is quite literally the best use for the looping-video service. It's just nonstop mini pony.
For as awful as the Steelers have played through eight games, it was eternally refreshing to watch them take complete control of another team and exert their gameplan. And this was yet another contest in which Pittsburgh came out sluggish, turned the ball over and immediately had to play from behind. Only "behind" was just three points, and the opposition was the Bills...
