For the fourth consecutive year, Sean over at Sean's Ramblings is running his annual "Best Pittsburgh Sports Blog" tournament. Last year, we were fortunate enough to be one of the 32 blogs in the tournament field and actually pulled out a first round victory over Puck Huffers before falling to Steelers Depot in the Sweet 16.
This year, we were not only lucky enough to be one of the 32 once again, but actually moved up the bracket to a #4 seed. We're facing Pitt Script, a very solid Pitt Panthers blog in the first round. Here's a look at this year's bracket.
Voting for our first round matchup is open. Go here to vote (hopefully you vote for us!).
If you decide to vote in any of the other matchups, here's a list of who we're endorsing:
Where Have You Gone Andy Van Slyke? over Cardiac Hill (WHYGAVS is probably the best Pirates blog out there)
Faceoff Factor over Steelers Gab
Pittsburgh Sports Daily Bulletin over Blog 'n' Gold (only because BNG is "sponsored" by the Post-Gazette and we'd prefer to see an independent blogger win this)
That's Church over Steelers Today
Joey Porter's Pit Bulls over Empty Netters (honestly, EN should probably win this, but same logic as Blog n' Gold above)
The Steelers n'at over Pitt Script (of course, it's us!)
Blitzburgh Blog over Black Shoe Diaries (the guys at Blitzburgh Blog are some of our best blogging buds)
Raise the Jolly Roger over Nice Pick, Cowher (RTJR is solid)
