Look out mascot world, there is a new contender for the title of Worst Mascot Ever Invented! Meet Steely McBeam, the new mascot for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Steely is a giant construction worker with a jaw bigger than Chad Henne's and skin yellower than most characters on the Simpsons. True, Autumn Thunder is a Michigan blog, but since Michigan man and Steelers rookie LaMarr Woodley helped unveil this gigantic embarrassment, Steely makes his AT debut today. Congratulations, Steely.
"It was so freakin' ugly I didn't quite know what to do," said LaMarr. "I threw up in my mouth when I saw it for the first time. After the unveiling, I went home and reflected on how awesome it was to play for Michigan, who knew that if you can't have a good mascot, don't have one at all."
