We now have legit lists of all(~ish) PSAMP posts that feature Pittsburgh Sports Stuff in Music and in Hip Hop. It was only fair to go back through my archives and see where Steelers, Pirates and Penguins merchandise pops up in Hollywood, or if some celeb is caught talking about one of our local teams. Full list below:no comments
There are 2 known internet memes involving mini ponies that have sprung forth in the past year and a half or so. The first was during the 2011 London Riots. We've featured 3 versions of the fake London Riots mini pony at PSAMP (1, 2, 3).
The other is about a year more recent. A few months ago, there was this incredible mini pony standing outside someone's door late at night. Original image and the first riff on it was on PSAMP back in July 2012. Now we have the one above. I would probably feature any version of either picture, even if someone just wrote POOP all over the front.
*PS THE SUPER FANTASTIC AND AMAZING AND ALWAYS-AWESOME DANIELLE ALSO SENT THIS IN VIA EMAIL AND I FORGOT THANKS AGAIN DANIELLE SJFKHJSFH*no comments
I have no real reason for posting this other than the fact that I was going through the Pittsburgh Sports Stuff in Music and in Hop Hop lists today, and remembered I had these old pictures of producer/rapper Dr. Dre on my hard drive.
We added a picture of Faith No More guitarist Jim Martin to one of the lists earlier today. Why not even it out with another legend for the other list?

How do you save music? YOU ADD SOME FAITH NO MORE!
Our list of PSAMP posts featuring Pittsburgh Sports Stuff in Music was severely lacking in awesome musicians. Suicidal Tendencies and a young, hot Madonna save a list littered with boy bands and Bweebers and Lady Haha. I mean look at the comparable Pittsburgh Sports Stuff in Hip Hop post. Sure, there's Dbags like Crust Brown in there, but you got Mobb Deep, a Wu-Tang affiliate, Three 6, maticulous, Audimatic, Method Man, Layzie Bone. I mean c'mon.
So like I said above, enter Faith No More to right the ship.
Here's a picture of longtime FNM guitarist Jim Martin in a Penguins sweater while standing next to a babe in a bikini. Your move, every other NHL team.

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
