A snippet from pittsburgh live which made me smile :)

HARDER THEY FALL: Nose guard Casey Hampton found out it isn't always a good idea to take off your helmet at practice. Hampton dropped his helmet in the grass and knelt to watch a special teams drill while supporting himself on his helmet with one arm. After alerting several players, safety Troy Polamalu walked up behind Hampton, kicked out the helmet, and caught the 325-pound Hampton by the shoulder pads as he was tipping over. Even Hampton had to laugh.

i really dont know if i would have been brave enough to play a joke on hampton.but i guess troy shows no fear on the field and ,hey,at least he caught him lol

I got a big kick out of that story- thanks for posting it! :smile:

It is great seeing the guys clowning around with each other! :bouncy:

When I was reading that, though, the song "Weebles Wobble But They Don't Fall Down" kept running through my mind - LOL! I saw Casey up close at camp - he's a BIG, BIG boy!
