Pittsburgh council changes city name to 'Sixburgh'
http://blogs.usatoday.com/thehuddle/2009/02/pittsburgh-coun.html

As the Steelers gathered with thousands of fans in Pittsburgh to celebrate the team's Super Bowl title, the local city council honored the team's record-setting sixth Super Bowl championship.

They changed the name of the city to "Sixburgh."

Pittsburgh city council member Bruce Kraus led the proclamation that designates the city as "Sixburgh" for all of 2009.

It's the second attempt at a football-related name change this year among the city's politicians. Before the Steelers' AFC championship contest with the Ravens, Pittsburgh mayor Luke Ravenstahl said he wanted to change his name to "Steelerstahl."
