Mayor Changes Name To SteelerstahlPITTSBURGH (KDKA) ―

Pittsburgh's mayor has changed his last name to show his support for the black & gold!

Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl has gone to great lengths to show his Steelers pride and his dislike for their rivals and upcoming playoff opponents, the Baltimore Ravens.

This morning, the Mayor changed his name from Ravenstahl to Steelerstahl, at least until after the AFC Championship match-up.

"I'm a huge Steeler fan myself and anything I can do to show my support is something I wanted to do," Mayor Luke "Steelerstahl" said.

The idea started with STAR 100.7 morning host, J.R., who made a call to the Mayor's Office on Tuesday.

"His name is 'raven,' that's wrong. There are all kinds of superstitions that go with football," said J.R. "I got his answering machine and left a message, said, 'How about Steelerstahl?' And he decided to change his name.'"

So Mayor "Steelerstahl" stopped by the radio station to make the public proclamation this morning.

"I got a call in the office yesterday from the radio station and they suggested a name change from Ravenstahl to Steelerstahl, of course, to get the fans going," said the Mayor. "And I couldn't pass up that opportunity.

"I will make a ceremonial name change from Luke Ravenstahl to Luke Steelerstahl," he said.

The Mayor changed the name on his office door, signed the official papers and has finished the name change proclamation at the City-County Building. He will keep his new name through Sunday.

As far as it translating when the players take the field Sunday, Mayor "Steelerstahl" says he's sure of a Steelers victory.

"Steelers 20, Ravens 13," he predicts

Ironically, "stahl" is actually German for "steel".

Which is why he did it. How did Pittsburgher's elect a guy with a last name that starts with RAVENS anyway? He should be forced to keep the name change if he wants to run again.
