Fishing for praise.

Do you like the new masthead?  (you may need to clear your cache or reload the page several times)

This is one of those times that while it may appear I am asking you for your objective and honest opinion, I am really fishing for effusive praise in the form of, “PittGirl, that is the best masthead I have ever seen in my life.  Seriously.”

    Just switch the Steelers logo for a fun picture of Troy’s head and it will be PERFECT.

    Every art museum on the planet should take down all art, of every kind and description, and exclusively display the Burgh Blog masthead – forever.

    Nice, but it’s too tall vertically. Way too much dead space on the sides.
    I’m just sayin’.

    In my opinion as a professional builder of websites, that is the best masthead I have ever seen in my life.

    Except that I agree that if it were shorter, less scrolling would be required to get to the snarky goodness of your posts. So if the masthead can be revised (like, move the tagline to the right of the title), then *that* will surely be the best masthead I will ever see in my life.

    I like the style of it, but having the interim mayors image in there really angers me (as it does any time I see him) and might actually make me visit less often.

    I like this much more. I was never down with the Lombardi Trophy, coming as it did about a year after the championship.

    And I’m very grateful to have been included in your lineup, although I’m a bit wounded by Gunn Lino’s snarky remark. :)

    PittGirl, that is the best masthead I have ever seen in my life. But it’s pretty creepy, the way Luke’s eyes follow you around the room.

    Meh…too much dead space.

    Oh wait, what am I saying? Greatest masthead in the history of mastheads!

    I do like the pics at the bottom…they give me a strange urge to play whack-a-mole…

    Seriously. She’s hot. She uses big words correctly. She Photoshops. She’s hot. She’s fabulously snarky. She shares my dislike of pigeons. She’s hot. She’s artsy. She’s hot.

    (But she’s apparently a Penguins hater… What, no Pens logo?) And I the only one who can’t figure out what that is next to the pigeon? Also, maybe it’s just my like of things that flash, but I miss not watching the blog title change from black to gold when you click on it.

    It’s the top of the Steel Tower, Rich. Sans UPMC logo, thank God.

    Rich, Looks like a corner of the USX (is that what they still call it?) building to me. It would be neat if PittGirl put just the top of her head up there too, just to tantalize us. Unless she has really, really distinctive hair like, I dunnno, Sanjaya or maybe Troy. Or she could take a cue from Esquire and put up a different body part every month for like five years (“Just for Bucdaddy, this month here’s my middle finger!”) and we’d have to assemble them puzzle-fashion to see her in her glorious entirety. Those of us who are still alive by then, anyway.

    I believe the face on the far right is Timothy Daly from the TV series “Wings.”
