Sportscasting Ethics About ESPN

STAA’s Sportscasting Watercooler Blog Archive I'm REALLY Trying to Say Nice Things About ESPN, But . . . The opening of the game featured a fictitious “Welcome to Pittsburgh” sign with a smaller sign beneath it reading “Mayor Luke Ravenstahl- 2007.
Does anyone have the tape or YouTube of this?

I thought it was a separate ad that was produced locally and paid for by the city when I saw it and expected there to be some controversy when the mayor's name appeared at the end...sort of the way many county sheriffs put their familiar names on the sides of the road patrol cars for the free political advertising..(Westmoreland was still doing this in the last decade).
