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?

HBO just can't seem to get a handle on these "Game of Throne" leaks.
Even they are doing some leaking.
He may no longer be President of the United States, but he's still got Twitter sway.
Temptation can be a powerful thing.
Organizers of a free speech protest planned at Google locations across the United States including Pittsburgh said late Tuesday that the marches were postponed because of threats from "left-wing terrorists."
