    Polamalu's hair insured for $1,000,000

    Shampoo brand Head & Shoulders announced today that it is taking out a $1 million insurance policy on Steelers safety Troy Polamalu's trademark hair.

    Polamalu is a spokesman for the brand.

    "Head & Shoulders has gone above and beyond this year by insuring my Samoan locks for a cool $1 million," Polamalu said in a news release from the company.

    "In developing this unique policy, we recognize that Troy Polamalu's famed head of hair is truly legendary and we are proud to partner with head & shoulders to protect it," said Jonathan Thomas of Watkins Syndicate at Lloyd's of London.

    Thank heavens they got that wrapped up before the reg season. It was beginning to be awkward between those 2 sides.

    So his hair is worth more than Revis's contract this year.

    I'm pretty sure that in the contract it says that this contract is effective only if every single hair on his head is totally destroyed.

    What are the odds of that..... absent an huge fiery explosion or errant meteor strike?

    This is fluff. He might get tuft pulled out during a play, but there is no way this contract is enforeceable.

    Would it be funny if someone drugged him and shaved his head and sold the hair to provide merkins to the homeless?

    lol, no.


    The insurance co. would argue that he should have had sufficient security to prevent a drugging/shaving.

    Like the rest of us have.

    Iffin he's dead, which is the only other time we would hear about this policy, what good would publicity do him?

    This is about free shampoos and subsidizing his stable of whores with under the counter cash from recent Law school graduates as liasons.

    i think it says if 66% of his hair is destroyed then the policy would kick in..

    however, as a steeler fan, i find this very stupid.

    I would think that it would be somewhat akin to a blizzard if he scratched his head.
