Big Lead Sports Bar



News coming in from all directions today, but I've got to get this in: Mayor Luke Ravenstahl wants to change his name to Luke Steelerstahl. I wish I was making this up, but to assure you that this is not a practical joke, a quote from our Mayor:

"On behalf of the Steelers Nation, I've decided to remove the word 'Ravens' from my name just like the Steelers will remove them from the AFC Championship," he said, referring to Sunday's playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens."

Apparently this happened during a morning appearance Ravenstahl made on the Star 100.7 morning show.

This becomes the next entry in the sports section of Ravenstahl's biography as Mayor. In case you've forgotten, he helped choose ESPN 1250's top fan, he had an infamous "dilemma" for the Stanley Cup finals, and there's that still-lingering story about sneaking into the US Open.

Like him or dislike him, he keeps things interesting, no?

This could be the douchiest move ever. The unintended irony of the name's redundancy is hilarious.

...Long live Marmalard.

If only he took everything as serious as changing is name. Check out that look on his face. Boy is hella concentrating.

Wouldn't his name now be Steelersteel? That might be overdoing it a bit.

Good to see he got a few moments away from his PlayStation to tackle some serious matters!

And he will run unopposed in the next election. What a joke. Anyone who makes a career out of politics has no usefull skills to add to society. At least he didn't write a city check to cover the cost of this stupidity.

He better have done this during his lunch break.

Ride to the courthouse - $20
New suit from Marshalls - $100
Being paid to waste time - $200

Amount wasted on paper and bandwidth to cover this story - Priceless.

Is he wearing make-up in both this pic and the one in article linked here?
