Colts cheerleaders shave heads in solidarity

Showing the entire organization is in step with head coach Chuck Pagano, two cheerleaders made an unexpected move.

In a move of solidarity, Indianapolis Colts players elected to shave their heads in honor of head coach Chuck Pagano, who lost his hair as a result of chemotherapy/radiation treatment for his leukemia. It was a moment in this NFL season that saw players rally around their missing coach, and now the movement has spread further in the Colts organization.

Yes, these are two Colts cheerleaders -- electing to lose their hair to support Pagano, and further show how close this organization has become in the wake of his illness. For a player to lose his hair, that's impressive. But a cheerleader whose job is based on glamour and traditional depictions of female beauty? Absolutely stunning.

Looking to make an unexpected playoff push in the first year of a rebuild under Pagano, the Indianapolis Colts have found something bigger than football to believe in. The season may not last as long as it takes hair to regrow, but in a time like this, does any of it matter?
