It seems that after a long five weeks, Steeler safety Troy Polamalu will most likely play in tomorrow's game against Cleveland.
Polamalu has been sidelined since Pittsburgh's first game of the season on September 10. During the game against the Tennessee Titans, Troy suffered a hyperextended knee, resulting in a sprained PCL. Since his absence, Pittsburgh has been missing a key player in their defensive game, and the team has struggled to maintain a defense that in some circles has been seen as the "Steel Curtain II."
Polamalu has risen to fame not only for his amazing ability to cover the opponent and make what seem to be impossible plays, but for his hair. That's right. His hair. It's become yet another symbol of today's Steeler Nation. Every football fan across the country recognizes Troy by his hair alone. I know of more than one woman in this area who would just LOVE to run their fingers through that flowing mane (Yes Mom. I'm talking about you.).
Welcome back, Troy! We missed you terribly!!
To all yinz Browns fans: BEWARE THE HAIR!!!!
