One Steeler does good


As a long-time, devoted Pittsburgh Steelers fan, the bad press surrounding their quarterback has been a bitter pill for me to swallow. I'm tired of hearing about Ben Roethlisberger's "lack of better judgement" i.e. stupidity when it comes to his personal life.

Instead I want to discuss my favorite Steeler, Troy Polamalu. Less than a year older than whats-his-name, Troy is married, has a young son, and usually stays out of the spotlight. I'm not saying marriage and fatherhood work for everyone, but Troy is undeniably responsible and focused.

Recently Troy was at his niece's volleyball game (in Arizona no less) and was recognized by some in attendance. He signed some autographs and then surprised some young fans by starting a football game with them in the parking lot. (See full story here.) Lucky kids!

Today is Troy Polamalu's 29th birthday. Woohooooo! So, to the one Steeler I'm patiently waiting to see back on the football field,
Happy Birthday Troy!!!  Love, Piper
