Troy Polamalu Wouldn’t Cut His Hair Even if it Guaranteed Super Bowl Win
Sort of a dumb question asked by Erik Kuselias of Pro Football Talk , but I give Troy Polamalu credit for answering it like it was a legitimate one.
Here is what he had to say courtesy of Pro Football Zone.
“No, I wouldn’t,” Polamalu said. “And that’s not a lack of confidence that I have in our team. It’s more or less from appreciation that I have for football in general. You never know what can happen in this sport. Who knows what a 2-3 team can be, who knows what the NY Giants did last year? It comes more for my appreciation for the preparation of athletes and teams. That’s why I could never be a newscaster. You know, I couldn’t be like all right, you know, the so-and-so are going to beat the so-and-so 17-13 for this reason. It’s just, I have too much respect for people that prepare and for the sport in general.”
What they should have asked him is if he would cut his hair if that meant he would stop getting get hurt every week.
