2014 Sucked

Oh. Hi. How’ve you been? It’s been awhile since we last chatted here, and I’d love to know where you’ve been in the time since. Has life been good to you? Me? Well, thanks for asking! Life has been a thing. A brief timeline: PSAMP celebrated its seventh birthday back in March, and I wrote one […]

Steelers look to start playoff push with game against Atlanta

The Pittsburgh Steelers get a shot at redemption with the NFC South this Sunday as they travel to Atlanta to take on the 5-8 Falcons. Although Atlanta has a losing record, they are tied for first place in the NFC South. The team they are tied with beat the Steelers 35-32 in Pittsburgh. The Steelers have beaten some […]

Schedule provides for plenty of opportunity for Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers were floundering heading into week eight. They played just three good minutes of football in a week seven win and even at 4-3, experts were talking as if Mike Tomlin’s crew was in serious trouble. They responded with a 51-34 thrashing of the Colts in week eight. Then last week, quarterback Ben […]

Pittsburgh Panthers Preview vs. Georgia Tech

The Pittsburgh Panthers will host the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets this Saturday at Heinz Field in what could be an essential elimination game for the ACC Coastal Division title. Pittsburgh is favored by a mere three points in the game for what should be a very compelling game. Currently, the average price for Pittsburgh Panthers […]

Browns ticket prices double when Steelers come to FirstEnergy Stadium Sunday

This Sunday the Cleveland Browns will host the Pittsburgh Steelers at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio in a rematch from week 1 when the Steelers barely held on to a 30-27 win at Heinz Field after a squandering a 27-3 halftime lead.  With that win Pittsburgh won their fourth straight and 20 of 22 meetings […]

Steelers tickets 10% below season average for Falcons game

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had an interesting start to the 2014 season, as they held off a surging Browns team in Week 1, got crushed by the Ravens in Week 2 and dominated the Panthers in Week 3. Needless to say, it’s hard to gauge exactly what kind of team Steelers fans have so far. […]


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 […]


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. […]


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 […]


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 […]
