The mayor and city council of the town of Washington, Pa. voted unanimously this weekend to change the town's name for the week of the Super Bowl to avoid any confusion about which team its 15,000 residents were supporting.

Washington, Pa. is now Steeler, Pa.

What's that you say? It's just a publicity stunt?

Well, mission accomplished.

*whispers* Psst! I'm not really sure if I can get in trouble for typing the word Steeler on this blog, but I thought the story was funny. Just everyone keep it on the down-low, just between us, so I can stick around on Hugh's site. Thanks. And if he asks you about it, just remind him that at least I didn't do this. *whispers*
