I found this on another message board I frequent. It was posted by one of the members but there was no link or creditable source as to where it came from. This is exactly how it was posted. Does anyone have any information on this?

PITTSBURGH, PA — The Pittsburgh Steelers' AFC Championship celebration was nearly ruined Sunday when Baltimore Ravens running back and attention hog Willis McGahee refused to move his extremities following a fourth quarter tackle by safety Ryan Clark, making himself appear to be paralyzed or even dead. "Man, Willis was fine. Turns out he wasn't really hurt that entire time he was laid out on the ground," Pittsburgh's Troy Polamalu said in a postgame press conference in which he vowed never to forgive McGahee for dampening the Steelers' victory. "And oh, yeah, that stretcher was a nice touch. It's like he planned how he could make himself the center of attention." Pittsburgh emergency-room doctors told reporters that they also believed McGahee was faking his severe neck pain and had given him aspirin instead of prescribing any major painkillers.

I would be surprised if it was true. It doesn't sound like troy either (him and I go way back) :chuckle:

I thought the same thing, (about you and troy I mean :drink:). Seriously I didnt think it could be real but it kinda threw me when I read it. It was posted in a thread asking if anybody had any information on McGahees status. I dont know where the guy that posted it got it from but i figured some true pittsburghers would know if there were any truth to it.
