Troy Polamalu and The 20 Most Insurable Body Parts In Sports

0 of 22

    It was recently revealed that Troy Polamalu's hair was insured for $1 million by Head and Shoulders shampoo (he's a spokesman for them) through Lloyd's of London.

    This got me thinking about other trademark hairstyles, or signature body parts that should be insured. So, I bring you the 20 most insurable body parts in all of sports. 

20. Stephen Strasburg's Arm

1 of 22

    Oh... wait, MOST insurable? Nevermind then, let's just move on before the Nationals' one diehard fan lights themself on fire. 

20. Rafael Nadal's Hair

    Nadal's hair can best be described as "I haven't bathed in two months, that's not a problem, is it?" Having seen his hair up close, I can tell you that it ALWAYS looks like that. Even right after a shower. Without it, Rafa isn't Rafa. 

19. Imogen Thomas' Boobs

3 of 22

    I don't know who she's dating, but odds are, it's an English football player. She seems to like them, and they dig her. I can't imagine why. 

18. Roger Federer's Hair

4 of 22

    Roger just isn't the same without whatever he calls his hair style. I was thinking of going with his arm here, but his hair is so unique, it deserves a spot on this list. 

17. Simona Halep's Boobs

5 of 22

    I know, Simona Halep had breast reduction surgery because they were hurting her back. But this page will serve as a memorial to some of tennis' most epic boobs of all time. 

16. Kim Kardashian's Curves

6 of 22

    When you've got two assets to choose from, why not use both? The Cowboys' most famous WAG certainly has enough in two places to insure both. 

15. Tim Lincecum's Arm

7 of 22

    I could very easily have gone with his hair here. But Lincecum's delivery and scrawny little arm combine to get so much heat on a baseball, he needs to get it insured. 

14. Tom Brady's Chin

8 of 22

    That dimple is both epic and iconic. Without it, I don't think Brady has the charisma to bag both Bridget Moynahan and Gisele Bundchen. But with it? He can do anything. 

13. Prince Fielder's Gut

9 of 22

    I could have just as easily gone with that ridiculous beard. But the gut is epic. This man is a professional athlete! How is that even possible? He looks like he's carrying a second person under there!

12. Ana Ivanovich's Smile

10 of 22

    Ana Ivanovich would be pretty without her smile. But with it, even the oldest, surliest, most curmudgeonly sports writer can't help but go "Awwww." It turns her into the girl next door. It's her meal ticket.

11. Thomas Jones' Legs

11 of 22

    Thomas Jones' legs have turned him into a borderline Hall of Fame candidate, through their longevity and power. He's still churning out 1,200 yard seasons at age 32, when most running backs have given up the ghost.

    If the Jets had kept him instead of releasing him and picking up the corpse of LaDainian Tomlinson, maybe he'd give us a 1,500-yard season this year. 

10. Arizona State's Student Body

12 of 22

    So it's not an athlete's body. They were chosen as the hottest student body on this very website. Are you going to argue?

9. Ben Wallace's Afro

13 of 22

    This thing was EPIC back in the day. Now? We don't see it nearly often enough. It's time to fix that, Ben. 

8. Logan Tom's Legs

14 of 22

    They just sort of go on forever. They don't really have an end. They should be insured. 

7. Eva Longoria's Smile

15 of 22

    Without her smile, Eva probably wouldn't be a WAG. With it? She's one of the most beautiful women in the world.

6. Manny Ramirez's Brain

16 of 22

    Without it, Manny isn't Manny. He's boring. With it? He's the craziest player in baseball, hands down. 

5. Gina Carano's Abs

17 of 22

    Do I need to say anything? No.

4. Troy Polamalu's Hair

18 of 22

    With his hair up, he's mild mannered Troy. But when it comes down, he turns into a force of nature, delivering some of the most crushing hits in the NFL. Hence why he's in the top five. 

3. Stephanie Rice's Boobs

19 of 22

    In a sport full of women without much mass in the upper torso region, Aussie swimmer Stephanie Rice brings quite a bit to the table. They're what make her stand out from the rest of the successful swimmers from Australia, and there are tons of them.

2. Natalie Gulbis' Boobs

20 of 22

    Now if only she'd win something. Although, no one seems to mind that at all. 

1. Serena Williams' Butt

21 of 22

    Yeah. I don't need to say anything. It's clear why she's ranked first on this list...

1. Serena Williams: More Proof

    I rest my case.
