So I needed a place to keep a running list of all the musicians wearing or holding or singing about Pittsburgh sports things published on PSAMP. I already keep a list of PSAMP posts featuring Pittsburgh Sports Stuff in Hip Hop. I'm titling this one Pittsburgh Sports Stuff in Music not to exclude hip hop from the "music" genre, just this list has a cornucopia of types of music and I'm not creating a specific Pittsburgh Sports Stuff in Crap Music post just to house the Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga links. Pittsburgh Sports Stuff in Boy Bands? Get real.no comments
psamp on a mini pony and myself with Geno the bird as a Lego action figures
Over Christmas, my brother-in-law asked for Legos, so my sister got him a small pack of off-brand bricks compatible with Legos. We were all at my parents' house for the holiday, so I made a beeline for some old toys and found a ton of my old random Legos. usbzoso was there too because he's Jewish and wanted to come party on Christmas. He owns an awesome sun conure (parakeet) named Geno (yessss) so he took a pic including me, him, a mini pony and Geno the bird all in Lego form. What a picture.no comments
BONUS MINI PONY OF THE DAY TIME. BECAUSE IT'S VALENTINES DAY AND I LOVE YOU.
Yee haw! At #Pens game. psamp
This was in the waning moments of last night's 4-2 win over the Senators. I gotta be honest, I only posted this as a BONUS Mini Pony of the Day so it could be topically relevant to last night's win, cos if I just added it to the end of my submission queue it wouldn't have been published until mid-March. I don't really love you, I was lying.no comments
Ok so Twitter finally rolled out downloadable Twitter archives for most everyone after testing it with smaller groups. And with that comes everyone going through their old, now-insignificant quips and attaching some sort of memory or weight to any given 15-20 words. I've done it. Man, I'm lucky to have seen multiple Steelers Super Bowls and a Pens Stanley Cup during my Twitter lifetime. Better believe I checked out my mental state those days.
While the general population has now been losing brain cells to 5-year old tweets, the Roman Catholic church is losing their Pope to...~10 years of exhaustion? Sorry that was a horrible segue, but the Pope stepping down is big news. You don't have a once-in-600-years kinda development without some sort of social earthquake.
One of my recurring jokes on Twitter is to nominate culturally-relevant people for the impossible task of being Pope. Sidney Crosby scored a goal? Sidney Crosby for Pope. If you can dominate everyone in a given sport that involves skates on ice on top of the entire athletic aspect of the game, you gotta be able to give Pope-ing a go. And with Pope Benedict stepping down right around the same time my Twitter archive became available, it only seems fair to go back and see everyone I've ever nominated for Pope, because hey, the job is staggeringly available all of a sudden.
That was a way better segue. Forget you read the 2nd paragraph.
I'll put these in chronoligical order, from my earliest nomination to Matt Cooke just last night, after the jump. Let's slice through who should be Pope:no comments
Word has been trickling out that the Pirates will be holding focus groups with the intent on creating an updated Pirates logo for the 2014 season.
Guarantee the Pirates go 162-0 in 2014 if they keep rocking the gold P on the hat and give everyone WE NEED ME shirts like Jay Bell wore on this early 90s Upper Deck card. Just drive that point home that everyone is gonna have to contribute to avoid a 21st-consecutive losing season. Or to make everyone cocky. Cocky people can be funny at times.
Why is it so awesome? Well aside from the fact that our Evgeni Malkin is holding a ton of great birds? Ok. I was never an outspoken bird fan, I'm more of the small/fluffy animal fan, apparent in this blog's name and content. Dogs, goats...you name it I love it. But the weekend before last Memorial Day, usbzoso and I scoped out Coney Island since we are annual beach/ocean/diving bums and the beach opens the following weekend. While there I saw a mini pony. And then usbzoso got a sun conure at the Coney Island flea market. AND NAMED IT GENO.
Since I was there, I am Geno the bird's Godfather.
Here's a picture of Geno the bird with a tiny Pens logo in the background so you know it's legit:
That's the long story. Short story is GENO TOOK A PICTURE WITH GENO BIRDS. Just trust me when I say something rules.
Go birds. Go Pens.no comments
