Sad news came into the light today for those of us following the soft-spoken Steeler's foray into social networking.
His recently-opened Twitter account, with a robust 22,000-and-change followers and verified by Twitter as authentic, sounds like it's not really written by Polamalu at all:
"It's just really to help out some of the stuff we're trying to do," Polamalu said of his charity work. "It's not me at all."
So he's saying that someone else wrote this one?
"I'm leaving behind a pregnant wife and 21 month old son to capture a dream I have had since childhood. I have been training my whole life for this; in my actions and in my thoughts. Never escaping me for a moment."
That's some ghost-writer.
