Former Steeler Ernie Holmes Killed

For you young'unz out there, Ernie was dubbed "Arrowhead" by his Steeler teammates. The reason? Before it became popular to 'sculpt' hair, he had his afro shaped into an arrow pointing from the back of his head to the front.

When asked why he'd done it, he replied that it would help him ensure that he kept moving in the right direction.

I kid you not.

He sure did. I remember a picture of the Steelers front four and there was Ernie with that arrow on his head. Every time I heard his name after that I thought of that picture.
