Steelers Mascot: A Scotsman?

The Steelers’ new mascot has a new name, and it stinks worse than my afternoon commute on a bus with a busted air conditioner: Steely McBeam.

This, after “70,000+” entries and apparently a gas leak at Steelers Marketing Headquarters.

For the record, we have Diane Roles of Valencia, Pa to blame for the name and the Post-Gazette to thank for the quotes and the picture.

    The fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers sunk low enough to have a mascot is a shame. I bet Art Sr. wouldn’t have allowed this nonsense.

    I am not related to that guy! But a little humiliation might keep the team humble and angry.

    Thi is certainly not the first Steeler Mascot. Stevie Steeler in the 80’s and 90’s and they had one before in the 60’s I believe. Contrary to popular belief the Steelers also had cheerleaders in the early 60’s as well.
