On a mission

Troy Polamalu, the Steelers' spectacular strong safety, didn't feel an extra sense of elation or emptiness in the aftermath of Super XL. He felt pretty much the same as always.

"Some people need a ring or a Super Bowl or a Pro Bowl to validate themselves," he said. "Obviously, from what you know about me, that's not the person I am."

Polamalu likes to win as much as the next guy, but ...

"My goal is not based on football," he said. "It's spirituality. It's life. You don't separate football from anywhere else in your life. Football's not my mission. The Super Bowl's not my mission. I think football does a great job in teaching people lessons about growing, just like any other occupation. My mission is life."
