Troysus in Samoa

Troysus visited Samoa and well, just go watch the video and see the pictures over at ESPN Magazine.

Things to notice: Troy can dance. Troy cries. Troy has a beautiful family.

Troy is shirtless.

    The full spread is ESPN magazine is good – there’s a full page of him shirtless, in the water, holding both his babies – so precious! I loved the article!

    Love Samoa, My favorite Samoan quote came after a luau. A samoan football player said ” We Samoans don’t stop eating because we are full, we stop eating cause we get tired of eating”.

    Took me awhile to learn to pronounce Samoa correctly. It isn’t Sam-oa it is more like Saw-moa. (Troy says it correctly).

    Wonderful generous culture, lovely lovely people.

    OK, I love me some Troysus but I don’t get two things:

    1. In all his life, Troy has only been to Samaoa one other time. He was born in CA and raised in OR. I’m not sure why he is treated like such a king by the Samoans. Sure, his family is Samoan but there are other NFL players who were actually raised there. I am not, however, denying this man’s right to explore his heritage. It’s just that he’s not really FROM Samoa.

    2. What’s up with this quote: “A few women even tried to make out with me,” he says, laughing. “If you fight it, it will be like a confrontation, so you kind of give in — to a point.” What the hell does Mrs. Troysus think about THAT? That knocked a little bit of the sparkle of his crown for me.

    All hail Troysus!

    The hair-net wearing Troysus in the video only convinces me of one thing. HOT even if he were bald. Thankyouverymuch.
