Woman worry. Whether we are mothers, girlfriends, wives or even just friends we have been burdened with the emotion of worry when it comes to the men we love. In this past week alone how often have you found yourself worrying about your mate, spouse or love interest? Sometimes to resolve this worry all we need is a simple call from our mate reassuring us that they are okay. Some men get this concept and humbly comply,while others struggle with this and are still a work in progress. The question today is what happens when the ones who "get it" are punished? In case your confused let me provide you with an example.....
Last Sunday Pittsburgh Steelers Troy Polamalu, was fined a whooping $10,000 for calling his wife to let her know he was okay. Polamalu made a crucial tackle during Sunday's Steelers vs Jagaurs game and left the game with what was said to be concussion like symptoms. Polamula, who has previously suffered from multiple brain injuries gave everyone a scare during the tackle. Knowing his wife was probably worried sick about him, Polamula attempted to be one of the ones who "get it" so he took to the sidelines and called his wife to tell her he was okay.
We love our men but sometimes we just have to shake our heads at them. NFL rules states that players are not allowed to have electronics or cell phones on the bench premises throughout the game and 90 minutes prior to the start of the game. According to the NFL, Polamalu, violated the rules by calling his wife midway through the game. The saying "damned if they do,damned if they don't" immediately comes to mind.
Polamalu's kind gestures which was probably trying to keep him out of trouble with the Misses will now cause him $10,000. Obviously the unsaid message is that it would have been cheaper to let the wife worry. I applaud Polamula's gesture as it was sincere and done with the right attitude, but it may have helped to finish the game first and then call. Sometimes you just have to shake your head and smile at men.
