PITTSBURGH -- Bye-bye Luke Ravenstahl and hello Luke Steelerstahl.
With the AFC Championship game between the Steelers and Ravens on Sunday, Mayor Luke “Raven”stahl doesn’t want to be mistaken for a Baltimore sympathizer.
Pittsburgh's mayor has modified his last name to honor the Steelers, who are vying for the AFC Championship.
Ravenstahl, er, "Steelerstahl" said he decided to remove raven from his name just as the Steelers will remove the hated Baltimore Ravens from contention on Sunday.
"They called the office, made the recommendation and of course, as soon as I heard it, I thought it was a great idea," said Steelerstahl. "Have a little fun with this weekend's AFC Championship game."
Ravenstahl made the ceremonious change on Wednesday and will keep it at least through Sunday.
Coincidentally, stahl is German for steel.
