Video: Steelers Fan Tries To Burn Sanchez Effigy

Before the Steelers-Jets game last Sunday, at least one nameless Pittsburgh tailgater* got the bright idea to hang a dummy of Mark Sanchez off a billboard.

And then burn it.

Thankfully, a Pittsburgh cop interceded and saved the guy from:

1) Allegheny County lockup
2) National disgrace after billboard caught on fire
3) Losing his life savings ($37) to replace billboard ad (featuring local riverboat casino’s ‘LOOSEST SLOTS!’ being pitched with images of smiling elderly couple)
4) A career in morning radio
