Despite some very questionable voting that took place in several match-ups on Friday afternoon, we're now at the Sweet 16 round of the Best Pittsburgh Sports Blog Tournament. If this type of voting continues, we're going to stop the car, turn around and take the tournament back home.
Therefore, let me restate this again. The voting software isn't all the sophisticated, and I'm sure that savvy computer folks can (and possibly did in the last round) rig the voting to go a certain way. The winner of this tournament doesn't get a cash prize or even a trophy. This tournament is for fun to highlight and celebrate some of the best blogs that cover Pittsburgh sports. Let's keep it this way.
Voting for the Sweet 16 round begins now and will run until 8:00 PM Eastern time tomorrow (Tuesday, 2/22).
Your updated bracket...

Finally, I'm testing out some new voting websites, so let's see if this works.
