Buffalo Blues in Shadyside is a finalist in ESPN Mobile's nationwide search for the “Best Sports Bar in North America.” This is the third consecutive year for the ESPN contest, which received 5,000 submissions. Pittsburgh fans apparently thought enough of the place to place it among 12 finalists. They can now cast their vote again in the next round, which will narrow the field to the “final four.”
Voting ends at noon Tuesday. The national winner will receive a Monday Night Football event sponsored by ESPN. Fans may submit specific reasons or funny stories through the online nomination form. The fan who submits the funniest, clean story has a chance to receive an ESPN prize pack.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
