Pittsburgh mayor Luke Ravenstahl put a little back into it yesterday while shoveling the walkway of the childhood parish of Packers coach Mike McCarthy.
Ravenstahl cleared the walk of St. Rosalia’s for losing a Super Bowl bet with Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt. The mayor also flew a Packers flag outside of the City-County Building today as part of the wager, along with sending notable Pittsburgh area cuisine to Feeding America in Eastern Wisconsin.
McCarthy’s parents, Joe and Ellen, still live in Steelers country and are parishioners at the newly shoveled church.
Not that Pittsburgh didn’t do their fair share of collecting this season.
Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake sent the city a basket of their finest crab cakes after the Ravens Divisional loss, and New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg unfurled a “Terrible Towel” along the side of the NYC Public Library after the Jets loss in the AFC Championship Game.
