2012 Pittsburgh Sports Blog Tournament: Elite 8 Round

We're on to the Elite 8 round of the 4th annual Best Pittsburgh Sports Blog Tournament. Two #1 seeds were knocked out in the Sweet 16 round, the Vonteego Cummings division is completely up for grabs with the #3 and #5 seeds remaining, and Behind the Steel Curtain received a record amount of votes in the last round. Eight amazing blogs remain. Here is your latest bracket:

Voting for the Elite 8 round begins now and runs through tomorrow (Tuesday) at 9:00 PM Eastern time. Please make sure to visit all of the blogs in the tournament as well as the other Pittsburgh sports blogs included in the links section of my blog. I'm also still looking for someone to create an amazing virtual trophy. Anyone? Anyone?

Anyway, you may begin voting (dramatic pause)!

Walter Abercrombie Division Championship

#1 Behind the Steel Curtain vs. #2 Pittsburgh Sports & Mini Ponies

Vonteego Cummings Division Championship

#3 Three Rivers Burgh Blog vs. #5 Rum Bunter

Dave Clark Division Championship

#1 Where Have You Gone, Andy Van Slyke vs. #3 Blog 'N' Gold

(I have no idea why this poll no longer appears. WHYGAVS defeated Blog 'N' Gold with 62.38% of the vote. If for some reason, the results appear here but not on my computer, then disregard this.)

Kip Miller Division Championship

#2 Raise the Jolly Roger vs. #5 Pitt Script

Good luck to all of the blogs in the tournament and thanks to Cotter for designing this incredible logo.

Update: Voting in the Elite 8 round is now closed. The Final 4 round begins tomorrow (Wednesday) at 8:00 AM Eastern time. Thanks for voting everyone!
