I mean, I can see how capitalizing on the success of the Steelers and the city’s love for them is more appetizing than attending to the actual business of running Pittsburgh. And the whole “Mayor Steelerstahl” thing is kind of cute in a picture-book sort of way. But the fact that the stunt could actually directly interfere with the little job of being the mayor?
Left unanswered: Whether official actions, like vetoes of council legislation, could be challenged legally if the mayor’s name is in limbo. “You’d have to ask the legal folks that question.”
Whose side are you on anyway, Ravenstahl? I guess we just have to check your name.
