The Polamankle

Cuuuuuuuh rap. Troy Polamalu sprained his ankle in practice yesterday and is listed as probable for the Super Bowl. Not good for the Steelers. I would be very surprised if he didn't play, but without his crazy, frenetic mobility at 100% the vaunted Pittsburgh D might be in trouble. Hopefully this is just a ploy by defensive coordinator and John Spencer lookalike, Dick LeBeau, to trick the Seahawks into testing him.

[edit: Kendra has just alerted me to a very good point: "even with a sprained ankle, he can still inspire hair envy (always a powerful tool when the opposing QB is balding)" Excellent point. He might be as effective just standing on the sideline with his helmet off. I'd prefer him to wreak havoc in the secondary, but hair mockery is a decent consolation prize.]

48 hours until the Pregame begin ...
