I'm glad he chose football for two simple reasons:
1) He plays the game like he's not getting paid; he's just out there for the fun of it, and boy, is he having a boatload of fun.
2) There's no way in hell a baseball team would've let him grow his hair like that.

Someone with made Photoshop skillz should do a mockup of Troy if he played for the Yankees. *shudder*

Is his hair really much worse than this or this?

Holden, tell me you're not disrespecting Oscar Gamble's hair !

I would never disrespect the original OG's hair. Just a point of comparison.

I'm sure there are baseball oriented families that match the Palomalu family's passion for football, but they maybe outnumbered.

I would hate to be a pitcher who brushed him back. Imagine him charging the mound!
