Because Tipsy McStagger Was Already Taken

The long search to name the Steeler mascot is finally over. Over 70,000 names were reviewed and evaluated by the Steeler brass. And they've made a decision that we have to live with, for better or for worse. We must endure the snickering, open our arms and welcome Steely McBeam as a part of the family.
I must admit, I'm guilty of some snickering myself. The minute I heard the announcement, I immediately thought of that old Simpsons episode where Homer invented a drink, Moe stole the recipe, and pitched it to a restaurant chain under the name "The Flaming Moe". The name of that chain? Tipsy McStagger's.

So prepare yourself for the the insults and the gay jokes (already underway at Deadspin). He's one of ours now.

Tell me WTF was wrong with THE TERRIBLE FAN.

Chris said...

Upon seeing the mascot, I think "Glory Hole Joe" has a nice ring to it.

The Terrible Fan looked like a cross between a Twinkie and dildo...

Twinkies are cool, and the 2nd part will increase sales of miniature likenesses of him amongst female Steeler fans.

BRING HIM BACK!!!

Next on the hit parade - new Pirates Mascot, "Sebastian the Butt Pillager"...(no offense to anyone who's name is Sebastian...or Butt Pillager...just trying to be humorous, [insert smiley face])
