Troy Polamalu Came to Visit Us!

What time is it? Football time!!

LOL. I sound like such a sports buff don’t I? Well, it’s football time again and anyone who knows me is probably wondering how I even know that. {hee-hee} It’s time to start rooting for my favorite NFL player, Troy Polamalu! He even made a guest appearance at our house yesterday!

What? You don’t believe me? See for yourself then!

First we chatted over tea and petit fours (lenten, of course). I was very disappointed that Theodora couldn’t make it because I was really looking forward to comparing Orthodox mom notes with her and meeting her precious little Paisios. I did, however, send her my recipe for the petit fours.

And just in case you’re wondering, no, he didn’t mind that his teacup was chipped and the pot was missing its handle…

Then Troy checked out Adventures of an Orthodox Mom and gave me a few pointers. He particularly loved the quote by Elder Ephraim.

Then he graciously posed for a photo with the boys! He did take a nasty fall right after this photo but luckily, he suffered no injuries.

What a lovely afternoon we had! He was also kind enough to let me interview him before he left. You could read all about it here.

  1. Loved everything about Troy, showing it to my boys. Very inspirational for them!
    Hopefully they’ll have the honor of meeting him one day at the monastery.
    Keep up your great work
