Default Pittsburgh fixes error in Super Bowl proclamation

Pittsburgh fixes error in Super Bowl proclamation
By The Tribune-Review
Tuesday, February 10, 2009
http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_611074.html

Pittsburgh City Council has reissued a proclamation naming the city Sixburgh in honor of the Steelers' sixth Super Bowl win because last week's ceremonial announcement contained a statistical error.

The proclamation noted the 27-23 win over the Arizona Cardinals featured the first safety in a Super Bowl. The Cardinals scored two points when a Steelers offensive lineman was called for holding while quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was in the end zone.

Fans who wanted to frame the proclamation were annoyed by the gaffe especially since the Steelers were responsible for the first safety in a Super Bowl.

Because they're politicians, not rocket scientists.

Dumb asses. All it took was a little research on their part.

Regardless of the inaccuracy, what was the point of highlighting one of the Cardinals' scores in our proclamation?
