    New Bern, NC unless it's a home football game then I'm grilling on Devil's Alley
    Nice story to share. I'm a Steelers fan so it's especially cool...but the point is the same no matter the player or sport. Love this quote.
    "The majority of top picks in the NFL get drafted before they complete their college education," Polamalu said on his website. "I truly love football and it's such an immense blessing and privilege as an athlete to be given the rare opportunity to use those talents at the highest professional level, but it's certainly not a replacement for an education."
    Mmmm, BBQ!

    You do realize his hair has cultural significance. Unlike, say, the Matthews cousins.

    Congrats to Troy. Wonder how many USC guys in the pros have their degrees?

    No I didn't. But if it does have 'cultural significance' he probably shouldn't have it doing head 'n shoulders commercials.
