You might be wondering why Todd Haley has looked so disheveled on the sidelines lately. You might even be thinking it's due to stress. After all, it's been a tough season for Haley and the Kansas City Chiefs.â†µ
As it turns out, Haley's look is carefully planned and has its roots in superstitionâ†µ
On the morning of the Chiefs-Chargers game in Week 3, Kansas City coach Todd Haley asked his wife, in San Diego with their daughter and a friend of hers, if he should shave. Chrissy Haley said no. But after a look in the mirror, Todd did it anyway. And following the team's 20-17 heartbreaker, the first thing Chrissy said to Todd was, "You shaved."â†µ
So it happened the next Sunday. This time, Haley kept the 5-o'clock shadow. He also wore a hoodie and a ratty red hat. The result? The team's first win of the year, 22-17 over Minnesota.â†µ
I mean, it's worked for Bill Belichick...
