Edgar Snyder is the most Pittsburgh thing out there
Who would have believed it: Edgar Snyder is the most Pittsburgh thing ever.
Well, at least for this year.
upgruv's first #BurghBracket started with 64 things, people, foods, etc. — and it all ends with a lawyer.
In the championship round, Snyder took out The Terrible Towel.
It was an interesting situation because of our two-prong voting approach. The Terrible Towel claimed the Twitter crowd by a 65-29 margin. But it just wasn't enough to halt Snyder's overwhelming victory in the PlayBuzz poll (below), which gave Snyder a 179-71 win.
Adding the two together, Snyder was just too strong.
Snyder has been the best sport about the whole thing, showing great reverence for his opponents.
Cast your vote for what you believe is most #Pittsburgh (and for the record, we respect The Towel!)! #BurghBracket https://t.co/DekNsR8TIH

We can't thank you enough, Pittsburgh. We challenged you, and you delivered.
Rest assured, we'll be back next year with another round of 64. Can Snyder reclaim his crown? Or will another Pittsburgh "thing" step forward?

It's popping up all over the place.
No, we said popping not ... nevermind.
Wine, cats, coffee — what more could you ask for?
A Georgia driver hit more than a bump in the road while driving.
Elysia Morris said she was driving her red BMW through a construction zone when a truck was driving toward her without stopping.
She said she veered to the left to avoid a possible collision when her car got stuck in fresh, wet concrete.
"[The truck is] still driving towards me, still honking the horn, so I bear over to the left and my car ends up submerged in fresh, wet concrete," Morris said.
Morris was rescued safely, but her car was lodged deep into the mixture.
She said the construction company told her the concrete would cure in an hour and the tow truck that responded asked her to sign a waiver saying the county wasn't responsible for any damages before they would tow it.
She refused to sign, and they left the concrete to dry around her car, cementing it into the street.
Construction workers eventually used a jack hammer to remove the block of concrete and the car and loaded it onto a flatbed truck.
Condolences are pouring in from all over ... for a girl they never knew. But her story speaks to all of them.
