    1) Not right, but how about "Iron Man."? If that's not correct, I'd suggest they change it.
    2) Streets?
    My second guess would be Ronzoni spaghetti.

    Correct!

    2) Scaffolding and sidewalk sheds, the structures that are put up over the sidewalks of buildings that are under construction.

    The other one...

    1) Steely McBeam. Before 2007, the team did not have a mascot. McBeam arrived in celebration of the team’s 75th season.

    Ha. Re, Steely McBeam. Someone edited Brett Kavanaugh's Wikipedia page yesterday and changed his name to Rapey McRapeface. It was pretty funny. Then it was corrected back to your normal programming. I wonder why Pittsburgh, a city I associate more with central European immigrants, opted for an Irish surname for their mascot. Maybe there are some PA natives on here who can explain? Was there a large Irish contingent among steelworkers?
