Friday Links and More

The Best Pittsburgh Sports Blog Tournament Championship is two posts below or click here to vote for either Mondesi's House or The Pens Blog. Voting ends today at 5:00pm Eastern time.

I almost cried when I went to Wegmans last week because they had their Passover display up already. I'm not looking forward to matzo. They also had an Easter display featuring countless boxes of Peeps. Hooray for Peeps! Speaking of Peeps, entries for the 3rd annual Peeps Diorama Contest are due by 11:59 on March 15. Last year's gallery is amazing. [The Washington Post]

How I Met Your Mother is going to reveal the mother by the end of this season. Perhaps. [Entertainment Weekly]

I'm writing this on Thursday night, but check out Cotter's blog sometime Friday where I am part of the weekly Meeting People Is Easy. [One For The Other Thumb]

Ithaca College (Go Bombers!) is hosting the Sport, Sexuality, and Culture Conference on March 18-20. Speakers include USA Today's Christine Brennan and former Penn State and NBA player John Amaechi. This should be an interesting conference, but I can't see ESPN or Sports Illustrated covering it (even though they should). [Ithaca College]

Congratulations to Hand of Godard for the comment of the week on my post, Penguins Should Acquire Stillman and Nash:

I love the idea of getting Nash, but I think it would be a stretch to get Stillman. As long as we could keep Jordan Staal, I propose getting Marc Staal from the Rangers as well as prospect Bryan Young from the Edmonton Oilers. I think a Crosby, Staals, Nash and Young power play would be exciting.

Finally, there is a good chance that I will have a major announcement here on Monday that will certainly be of interest if you're a member of the Pittsburgh diaspora living in the Washington DC area (or even if you live in Washington but have no Pittsburgh connections).

Have a great weekend (and don't forget to vote for the Best Pittsburgh Sports Blog)!
