The Pittsburgh Steelers unveiled a new mascot last week to mark the franchise’s 75th anniversary. The yet-to-be-named mascot is a steelworker with a black hardhat in Steelers colors, black overalls, a gold long-sleeve shirt with black piping, a blond beard, black eyebrows and yellow pigmentation while carrying a steel beam made of Styrofoam. One look at the guy, though, and I find the urge to break into “Y-M-C-A.” irresistible.

The Detroit Lions made Ramzee Robinson the 255th and final selection of this year’s NFL draft, earning him the title of “Mr. Irrelevant.” Forgive the Lions for seeming a bit confused. That’s normally a distinction reserved for their first-round draft choices.
