Pittsburgh fixes error in Super Bowl proclamation
Pittsburgh City Council has reissued a proclamation naming the city Sixburgh in honor of the Steelers' sixth Super Bowl win because last week's ceremonial announcement contained a statistical error.
The proclamation noted the 27-23 win over the Arizona Cardinals featured the first safety in a Super Bowl. The Cardinals scored two points when a Steelers offensive lineman was called for holding while quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was in the end zone.
Fans who wanted to frame the proclamation were annoyed by the gaffe — especially since the Steelers were responsible for the first safety in a Super Bowl.
Dwight White scored the first Steelers points in Super Bowl history when he downed Minnesota Vikings quarterback Fran Tarkenton who recovered a fumble in his own end zone during Super Bowl IX.
