The Riddell Revolution Speed helmet. It doesn't look so bad to me...
There are times when function trumps fashion. Ensuring the safety of your brain is among those occasions.
After suffering two concussions over the course of three games, Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark is switching to the Riddell Revolution Speed helmet for game day. Why? Because it ranks highly in concussion tests.

A tip to the Pittsburgh Steelers: keep the past in the past. As in buried way, waaay back in the closet. So far back that it can never again see the the light of day.
A post about the third and final installation of the most recent Batman franchise, "The Dark Knight Rises," on The Sports Muse, you ask? Yep.
Stay with me.
The Sports Muse is not a place where I typically reveal my non-sports related celebrity crushes. But exceptional times call for exceptional measures.
In this corner, standing at 5' 10" and 207 pounds with flowing jet black hair is Pittsburgh Steelers safety Trrooooy Palomaluuuu.

In the other corner, standing at 6'3", 255 pounds and a hair full of golden locks is Green Packer outside linebacker Claaaay Maaathews.
There is nothing more I can add to the perfection of this someecard. It's official: After this weekend's heartbreak, I'm now rooting for the Baltimore Ravens. At least for this weekend.
It's a good thing that Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu is a large man. And trained to destroy grown men. Because otherwise I think he would get his arse kicked left and right. For the following reasons:
1. Long, flowing locks down to his behind -- check.
2. A spokesman for a major shampoo company (Head & Shoulders) -- check.
3. Hair so gorgeous and irreplaceable it is insured for one million dollars by said shampoo company? -- check.
