A couple days ago we brought you Jerome Bettis endorsing the EPA’s new power plant regs.
Today it’s Troy Polamalu recommending you watch Gasland:
The Steelers strong safety maintains a popular Twitter and Facebook account that sends out movie recommendations every week, in between ticket raffle contests and aphorisms such as, “The greatest oak was once a little nut who held its ground.”
His movie pick in mid-December: “Gasland,” a popular anti-drilling documentary that’s fueled the “fracktivist” movement against gas development and the fracking technique used in the Marcellus Shale region.
The post — whether just an another example of Mr. Polamalu’s taste for controversial documentaries or an outright political statement — thrust the popular Pittsburgher into one of the most fractious debates to hit the region in a while.
