Pittsburgh corrects Steelers proclamation
The Pittsburgh City Council has corrected its proclamation made after the Pittsburgh Steelers' Super Bowl win to correct a football history error.
The original proclamation, which changed the name of the city to Sixburgh to commemorate the football team's sixth Super Bowl victory, had erroneously claimed that Super Bowl XLIII featured
the first safety in a Super Bowl, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Tuesday.
Councilman Bruce Kraus' office released a revised version of the proclamation Tuesday that corrected the error.
