Pgh. mayor wants to drop “Ravens” from his name


In light of the bitter rivalry for the AFC Championship this Sunday with the Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, at least for this week, wants to be known as Luke Steelerstahl. Ravenstahl said the idea for the name change was not his own. Callers to CBS Radio’s Star 100.7 morning show "called in and thought it would be a good idea to change from Ravenstahl, given we are playing the hated Baltimore Ravens this weekend, to Steelerstahl," he said. "As soon as I heard it, I thought it was a great idea," He told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "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. The mayor began, but did not complete, a Verified Petition for a Name Change.
