Tag Archive: Troy Polamalu

Rapper Eminem’s new album “Recovery” won’t officially be released until June 22, but it has already leaked onto the internet two weeks early. Yes, that is Eminem with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Doesn’t Jerry look thrilled?

The hip-hop star is known for taking shots at other celebrities and musicians, and from time to time athletes. In “Recovery” he mentions Michael Vick, Ben Roethlisberger, and Troy Polamalu, although not all of the football players are shed in a good light.

On “Cold Wind Blows”, the first song of the album, Eminem drops the line “I’m nuts, Michael Vick in this b**** dog, fall back you mutts.” The track “Almost Famous” takes a stab at Ben Roethlisberger ending in the line “They call me Slim Roethlisberger.”

The last track of the album, the bonus song “Untitled”, references fellow Steeler Troy Polamalu’s lovely locks, saying “I flow like Troy Polamalu’s hair boy.”

Nowadays it’s hard to come up with an original commercial, especially for shoes. But Nike went for a different approach with their latest viral ad, and they nailed it.

The use of actor David Koechner won me over from the very beginning, although any member from the cast of “Anchorman” or “The Office” would have done the trick. If the name doesn’t ring a bell you should recognize him instantly, as he always seems to be lurking in all the funny movies.

Troy Polamalu, Brandon Roy, Carl Lewis, and Maria Sharapova are some of the athletes used in the video. Polamalu’s been on a roll with the commercials lately, from Coke Zero to Head & Shoulders and now Nike. I guess he took some advice from Shaq that you can get mentioned on internet blogs if you appear in viral videos while injured.

Gotta love John McEnroe at the end.
