We are halfway through the round of 32 and the South Side region sent four more Pittsburgh icons to the Sweet 16! While #1 and #2 seeds “Mean Joe” Greene and Chuck Noll took care of business handedly, #3 Dan Marino and #4 Kent Tekulve were both upset by #11 Ben Roethlisberger and #5 Myron Cope respectively.
Does the Mt. Washington Region have some upsets brewing as well?
#1 Roberto Clemente will go to battle with the reigning NHL MVP in #8 seed Evgeni Malkin. Can Geno pull an upset? #12 Troy Polamalu, who upset Dick Groat in the first round, will take on #4 Sidney Crosby. Which fan favorite will pull through? #6 Jack Butler will take on another Steelers legend in #3 Franco Harris. The Jaw, #7 Bill Cowher, will take on Pitt legend #2 Tony Dorsett in the day’s final match up.
As always, the vote is yours.
