First, players on the Indianapolis Colts shaved their heads to show support for Coach Chuck Pagano, who is battling leukemia. Then, fans followed. Now, add cheerleaders to the mix.
The mascot of the NFL team, Blue, pulled cheerleaders Megan M. and Crystal Ann aside after the third quarter of Sunday’s 20-13 victory over the Buffalo Bills to get their heads shaved in front of more than 60,000 fans in Lucas Oil Stadium and on national television.
“It was really overwhelming. People were cheering so loud and I could just feel the pride they had for our team that we were able to do something like this,” Megan M. told Fox News. “I think everyone hopes they can make a difference in their life and hopefully that’s what we did yesterday.”
