Default Steelers delay TC announcement of mascot name

Jul 27, 2007 3:26 pm US/Eastern

Steelers Mascot To Be Named Later
(KDKA) PITTSBURGH The Steelers have received such an "overwhelming response" from fans to help name the new mascot that the team wants more time to select the winner.

The Steelers introduced the new mascot three months ago to help kick off their 75th anniversary season.

While the team had planned to announce the winning entry during tonight's evening practice at Latrobe Memorial Stadium, those plans are now on hold.

This afternoon, a team spokesman released the following statement about the mascot naming:
"Due to the overwhelming response by Steelers fans who submitted entries to the team?s contest to name the new Steelers mascot, the club has decided to delay the announcement of the results. The new mascot?s name was to be originally announced today during the Steelers 7 p.m. practice at Latrobe Memorial Stadium.

?Steelers Fans have stepped up once again and due to this overwhelming response and so many good suggestions, we need more time to make the final decision,? said Steelers President Art Rooney II.

The Steelers have received over 70,000 entries to name their new mascot. ?The field has been narrowed down to a short list of finalists and we expect to have a final decision soon,? said Mr. Rooney. ?We want to thank the greatest fans in the world for their support!?

The announcement was originally scheduled to be part of the festivities at the team?s annual night practice at Latrobe Memorial High School. Tonight?s practice will be open to the public and will be followed by a fireworks display. Admission is $3 for adults 18-65 and $1 for children 12-17 and senior citizens. Children under 12 will be admitted for free when accompanied by a parent. Proceeds benefit the Greater Latrobe School District Athletic Program.
There's a lot at stake for one winning fan.

Here's another look at the prize the winner will recieve:

? 4 End Zone field level seats for the Steelers vs. Buffalo game (9/16/07 )
? 4 VIP Hospitality Tent passes
? 4 Pre-Game Field Passes
? An Authentic Steelers 75th Anniversary game jersey and helmet
? 1 Parking Pass
? 1 year of Cricket Wireless Unlimited Phone Service with One MotoKrzr phone
? One Blue Tooth wireless headset
? One Car Charger
? One carrying case
