Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu is one of the most talented football players in the world but an outstanding physical characteristic has garnered more popularity for the 29-year-old athlete than his plays on the field.
For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s his hair and it’s just been insured by Head & Shoulders for a whopping $1 million.
Here are the highlights of the press release:
“August 30, 2010 – head & shoulders® announced today that they are taking out a $1 million dollar insurance policy on Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu’s trademark hair. The head & shoulders spokesperson’s iconic mane will be protected throughout the NFL season by the world’s leading insurance agency, Lloyd’s of London.
No other NFL player’s hair has been so recognizable to warrant this first ever type of insurance policy. In fact, Troy’s hair is so ridiculously full and thick that end to end it spans 100 football fields.
“head & shoulders has gone above and beyond by insuring my Samoan locks for a cool $1 million dollars. This reinforces that my full and thick hair is unstoppable,” says Troy Polamalu.”
I’d like to see his hair span across 100 football fields because I simply do not believe it!
