This Is How Troy Polamalu Would Look If His Legs Were Lopped Off In A Farming Accident

Chilling, isn’t it? I know what you’re thinking: what in the hell would Troy Polamalu be doing on a farm, and if he were, wouldn’t you think he would exercise enough caution so as to not get his legs caught up in a hay baler? I agree – the Steelers safety does seem to be the type of person who would be extremely careful during farm work, and the fact that he always keeps his head on a swivel while playing football surely would be a tremendous attribute while working with farm machinery, but these kinds of accidents happen every day, even to folks with far more farming experience than Polamalu.

Further, you may ask yourself – am I right, am I wrong? You may also ask yourself, my God, what have I done? – hold on, I got Talking Heads on the brain again – apologies.

What I meant to write instead was: you may be asking yourself, even if Troy Polamalu had the misfortune of being in a tragic farming accident, why would he have been wearing his Steelers jersey and helmet while working on a farm, not mention in full pads as well? And why, after the accident and a presumed long hospital stay, would Polamalu insist on wearing his Steelers uniform – in full pads, once again – and request that he be propped up on some kind of uncomfortable-looking stand as opposed to a wheelchair?

Sadly, friends, these are not questions that I have answers to. I guess we’ll just have to hope that Troy Polamalu doesn’t get his legs lopped off in a tragic farming accident.
