[January 15, 2009]  PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pittsburgh's mayor has modified his last name to honor the Steelers, who are vying for the AFC Championship. Bye-bye, Luke Ravenstahl, and hello, Luke Steelerstahl.

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.

Ravenstahl made the ceremonial change on Wednesday and will keep it at least through Sunday.

Coincidentally, "stahl" is German for steel.
