And They Called Him Troy...

Do not think that I overlooked Troy Polamalu in the news the past couple of days. I saw all the stories, just didn't feel like posting anything...until now.

For those of you who have had your head in the sand all week, Troy Polamalu legally changed his name this week to Troy Polamalu. In the hopes that there are at least one or two of you who haven't heard about this, I'll explain.

Pah-lam-a-lu (as the song goes in Pittsburgh) has been known on his birth certificate as Troy Benjamin Aumua, taking his father's last name. However, his parents having split up when he was 1, Troy has used Polamalu for as long as anyone can remember.

But this week, he made it official. He is now Troy Aumua Polamalu...Here him roar!
