Council changes city's name to Sixburgh

By Rich Lord, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Mayor Luke Ravenstahl may have changed his name, but Pittsburgh City Council one-upped him today by ceremonially renaming the entire city.

In a proclamation crafted by Councilman Bruce Kraus, the city's lawmakers commended the "open, practical and efficient management" of the Super Bowl-winning Steelers.

"The council of the City of Pittsburgh does hearby commend the Rooney family for bringing notoriety to the City of Pittsburgh," Mr. Kraus read, with the other members of council arrayed about him, before "officially designating the City of Pittsburgh in 2009 as the City of Sixburgh."

Mr. Ravenstahl ceremonially renamed himself Steelerstahl prior to the AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens.

At this time next year, we can look forward to Sixburgh being renamed Seventh Heaven.
