Rant My Life: Members of Indianapolis Colts Shave Heads to Honor Coach Chuck Pagano
The Indianapolis Colts have been one of the biggest feel-good stories of the 2012 season not just because of their surprise 5-3 start, but the inspired play by the team after coach Chuck Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia. On Wednesday, about 30 members of the team decided to honor their beloved coach by shaving their heads as they prepare for a Week 10 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Obviously, this is one of the classiest moves the Colts could have done for Pagano considering how much support he’s shown for the team during his absence. It’s never easy to see anyone go through these types of procedures and Indianapolis realizes how much it’s killing Pagano to not be on the field with them on a weekly basis.
What the Colts have accomplished this year has been nothing short of phenomenal considering they just won two games all of last season, but what Pagano is accomplishing off the field during his treatment is the best story of all. Indianapolis seems to have an extra chip on their shoulder to perform well for their beloved coach and it’s amazing to see them perform a kind gesture like shaving their heads in his honor.
Tonight’s game against the Jaguars will be even more emotional for this team with everything that has gone this week, but if Andrew Luck continues to play at a high level–there’s no reason why the Colts shouldn’t leave Jacksonville with their sixth win of the season.
