Pittsburgh's mayor knelt down in defeat on Tuesday, donning a Denver Broncos No. 15 jersey and "Tebowing" in front of the Steel City's skyline to pay off a bet he made with the mayor of Denver over the Steelers-Broncos playoff game.
Mayor Luke Ravenstahl's Steelers lost as Denver quarterback Tim Tebow (No. 15) threw an 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play of overtime for a 29-23 victory Sunday.
Tebow's gesture of kneeling in prayer after great plays has become a national phenomenon, but for Ravenstahl it wasn't a craze he wanted a part of.
"This is not something I ever thought I'd have to do, and it certainly wasn't something I was looking forward to," Ravenstahl said. "However, we're good sports here in Pittsburgh, and I want to congratulate Denver on a great win."
If Denver had lost, Mayor Michael Hancock had pledged to wear a Steelers jersey and wave a "terrible towel," SBNation Pittsburgh reported.

Yes but, yes but, yes but. lolol . Yes but ... you're 24 Mill over the salary cap with a group of old men. Perhaps Mike Tomlin, whom I do like as a Buccaneers fan, will talk Rooney to pick Tim Tebow off the waiver wire if/when he's there. This MSG specifically for sixburgh on TBO site.
I‚Äôm impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that‚Äôs both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
