My Head May Explode: Steelers vs Penguins

As promised, here is the "Would You Rather..." poll pitting the Steelers against the Penguins for supreme dominance of the Pittsburgh internets.

Steelers vs Penguins
Exile Period: 1 Year

Details: Vote for who you would not want exiled. It comes down to the simple question: If you had to pick one team to watch this fall and winter, which one would it be? Vote closes at 4 PM Friday.

My computer hard drive crashed yesterday in magnificent fashion. I was updating the picks table such that whenever you rolled over John Anthony's icon a picture of Mark Anthony would pop up, and all of a sudden the computer starts to slow down, as if karmic forces were denying me from this task. Computer people will tell you this is the first sign of a crash, but they'll also tell you watching Lord of the Rings 17 times in theaters was worth the $150, so I didn't know what to believe. If I was smart I would have immediately backed everything up. Instead, I restarted. Big mistake. Thankfully I didn't lose too much important stuff (although I'm sure I'll need something a few weeks from now that I won't have). So on Friday expect a crummy paint job or whatever program that computers in the PSU labs can offer for the pick table. To those who find the flash meaningless, this could be a good thing.

I'm embarrased that the Latino pop star now has a better record than me in the picks. Actually, I might be in last place. I have had a shitty last two weeks. Still plenty of time left though.
