It makes no sense that we get attached to pro athletes the way we do. Actually, it’s really silly that we do. But, for me, Morrow was a guy that had come to symbolize something far more meaningful than sport.

well, the US Government tried to make it Pittsburg in the 1890s, where one paper in town complied (The Press) and the other did not (the Commercial Gazette, later the Gazette). It never really took hold, and the original Pittsburgh won out. Worth noting the Press switched back sometime between July 30, 1921 and September 1, 1921.
