Default Polamalu's hair insured for $1,000,000

i thought this was a joke, but it appears serious. really though, what are they afraid of? his hair burning down in a fire? getting hit by a truck? a farming equipment disaster? getting sucked into the turbine of a jet?

Shampoo brand Head & Shoulders announced today that it is taking out a $1 million insurance policy on Steelers safety Troy Polamalu's trademark hair.

Polamalu is a spokesman for the brand.

"Head & Shoulders has gone above and beyond this year by insuring my Samoan locks for a cool $1 million," Polamalu said in a news release from the company.

"In developing this unique policy, we recognize that Troy Polamalu's famed head of hair is truly legendary and we are proud to partner with head & shoulders to protect it," said Jonathan Thomas of Watkins Syndicate at Lloyd's of London.

Seriously though, it's a publicity stunt. And a good one too. They attention they'll get out of this will more than pay for the policy.

I read if he loses over 66% of his hair this season he can collect the money. Bring back LJ for a pay day!
