Everyone Hates Steely McBeam.

I can picture it already. It's the Steelers' home opener against the Bills. The crowd at Heinz Field is going crazy, screaming their lungs out as they get ready for the introduction of the Steelers.

And then the PA announcer makes a mistake: "Let's welcome your new Steelers mascot Steely McBeam."

Which leads to booing and fans throwning things as if Tommy Maddox had just been handed the starting job over Ben Roethlisberger.

As Neal over at Diehard Steel summarizes, Steely McBeam, the new Steelers mascot doesn't have a whole lot of friends.

Currently the admittedly unscientific poll at the Post-Gazette site has 10 percent of fans saying they liking the new name, 21 percent saying they don't like the name and an overwhelming 69 percent wondering why the Steelers are even thinking about having a mascot. They've already gotten over 32,000 votes--Steelers fans are passionate about hating mascots.

If venting your anger by voting isn't enough a poster on the Steelers Live site has put together an online petition, currently almost 500 fans have signed up.
