Are you the jackass? Are YOU the jackass? Are you …

That lucky, poorly dressed Sally Wiggin sat down with Troy Polamalu for an interview.

1. Troy is looking hotter than ever if that is possible.

I’m not a fan of facial hair on men, but I’m totally loving this look on Troy.

2. Troy loves us too.

After this season, Troy will have only one year left on his contract, but he said he definitely wants to stay in the Burgh’. “Yes I do, with all my heart,” he said. “I do. Definitely.”

“Pittsburgh is awesome,” said Troy. “This country is built on the backs of the people of Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh was the model city in the history of the U.S. of blue collar. That is why my wife and I feel at home here, and that is why Pittsburgh people were very proud, and have to continue to be proud.”

Troy said “awesome.” I’m going to take that as a shout out. What? Shut up.

3. And then this:

When having a season like this year, you can get very angry fans, very angry teammates, angry everything, so obviously, it is a little different.

Seriously. Are there people in this city being MEAN to Troy Polamalu? Really? People of the Burgh, don’t be jackasses to Troy Polamalu. If you feel the need to throw trash on somebody’s lawn, can I suggest you start looking for the current local addresses for Bill Cowher or Santonio Holmes? If anyone deserves to find a lawn full of debris, it is those two.

    “I’m not a fan of facial hair on men, but I’m totally loving this look on Troy.”

    Ditto on both points.

    Doesn’t he look like he should be shirtless on the cover of some trashy beach read, likely dressed as a pirate? Huh? Where was I?

    Facial hair on men doesnt affect me one way or another. Facial hair on women…that’s another matter.
