With 119 votes, Hector Matus Santiago is our winner! He hails all the way from Mexico, but he’s as big of a Steelers fan as the rest of us. Check out his Facebook pics and you will find a guy who traveled all the way across the continent to Heinz Field just to catch a home game!
Hector’s favorite quote:
Tom Brady, after living a full life, died. When he got to heaven, God was showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a faded Patriots flag in the window. “This house is yours for eternity, Tom,” said God. “This is very special; not everyone gets a house up here.” Tom felt special, indeed, and walked up to his house. On his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a 3-story mansion with BLACK & GOLD sidewalk, a 50-foot tall flagpole with an enormous STEELERS logo flag, and in every window, a TERRIBLE towel. Tom looked at God and said “God, I’m not trying to be ungrateful, but I have a question. I was an all-pro QB, I hold many NFL records, and I even won a few Super Bowls.” God said “So what’s your point, Tom?” “Well, why does Roethlisberger… get a better house than me?” God chuckled, and said: “Tom, that’s not Roethlisberger’s house, it’s Mine.”

Best Runners Up:
The original post:
November 2nd isn’t just voting day for your local politicians, it’s also the voting kick-off for Boring Pittsburgh’s Yinz Look Like… Troy Polamalu costume contest!
The bad news is that the contest was so popular that our voting software crashed – so in order to get the voting going, we posted all the pictures on our new fan page here. To cast your votes, click “like” under the picture (you have to like our fan page first, that’s just how Facebook works). You can vote for more than one entry.
The good news is that you get an extra day to vote! Instead of ending on November 7th, the contest will end on November 8th at 11:59pm. That gives you more time to ask your friends to vote for the best “Troy.”
We’re also giving away Hairy Helmet antenna balls to 3 random voters!
We had some duplicate entries and some entries that didn’t have photos attached. If you are one of the ones that we emailed about your entry not making it in, we will give you until 11/2 to email it to us.
Any relevant contest updates will be here and on our Facebook page.
