I gather there are football games today. Apparently, one of them even involves my hometown team. Buildings all over Baltimore are illuminated in purple. But we haven’t gone as far as the mayor of Pittsburgh (h/t):

“In light of the big Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens matchup this weekend, mayor Luke R. Ravenstahl has officially changed his name to Luke R. Steelerstahl. The change is only temporary, but he’s gone so far as to change the nameplate on his office door. He said he wants to “eliminate the Ravens just as the Steelers will on Sunday.””

Delightful quirkiness, abject pandering, or evidence of mental illness? And did he pay for the replacement nameplate himself, or ask the citizens of Pittsburgh to foot the bill? If he lived in San Francisco, would he have changed his name to 49erstahl? Questions, questions…
