Pittsburgh mayor selling Tebow jersey to support city schools

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl is trying to turn the Steelers' playoff loss to the Denver Broncos into a win for city school students.

Ravenstahl is selling a Tim Tebow jersey he wore Tuesday while striking a prayerful, one-kneed pose -- known as "Tebowing" -- made popular by the Broncos quarterback. Ravenstahl "Tebowed" in front of news photographers to settle a bet with Denver Mayor Michael Hancock on Sunday's playoff game, which the Broncoswon 29-23.

Ravenstahl has signed the jersey. Any money raised by the eBay auction will be donated to the "Pittsburgh Promise" fund.

Ravenstahl helped found the scholarship program, which provides college tuition assistants to graduates of Pittsburgh's public schools who maintain certain minimum grade-point averages.
