Often times negative stories in the sports world receive more attention than the positive ones, but that won't be the case in Indianapolis this week.
The Colts, one of the surprise stories of the 2012 NFL season, honored their head coach Chuck Pagano, who is battling currently leukemia, by shaving their heads.
More than two dozen Colts, including quarterback Andrew Luck and cornerback Vontae Davis, took part, and punter Pat McAfee said it was a no-brainer to say goodbye to his locks.
"It's all for Chuck," he said. "We all don't look good. I'm not built to have a bald head. I've got a huge sniffer.
"But we all love our coach so much that we want to show unity and let people know we're all in this together. It's a really cool thing."
The Colts have also started up and pushed the Twitter hashtag ChuckStrong, which has been seen on shirts and hats across the NFL.
All this good news and goosebump-enducing acts of honor have come on the heels of the Colts, the NFL's worst team a year ago, jumping out to a 5-3 record this year. If the playoffs began today, the Colts would earn a Wildcard berth as the No. 5 seed in the AFC.
Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians has acted as the head coach on an interim basis while Pagano goes through treatment.
Colts owner Jim Irsay shared this picture today on Twitter:
It's a similar act of respect the White Sox showed to late former pitcher and instructor Kevin Hickey. Hickey, who passed away in May, wore a mustache during his playing days and his time as the batting practice coach with the team.
So the White Sox honored Hickey as a handful of players grew mustaches late in the season, including Kevin Youkilis, Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko.
