Darnell Dockett Gets Stars-And-Stripes Haircut In Honor Of 9/11

You've gotta love Darnell Dockett. The eight-year defensive tackle for the Arizona Cardinals has an entertaining Twitter presence and isn't afraid to speak his mind on the social media platform. He's loud, blunt and entertaining.

Now there's another reason to like the guy. In honor of 9/11, Dockett got a very patriotic haircut. His new hair style features stars coursing the back of on one side of his head (click here) and stripes running the length of the other (click here).

It's a nice tribute to one of America's darkest and most moving moments. Sunday brings about the ten-year anniversary of Sept. 11th, 2001, when terrorists hijacked two planes and ran them into the Two Towers in New York. That day has become an emotional event that no one will ever forget. Surely every single person who was alive to see it can tell you exactly where they were and what they were doing when they heard about the attack.

The haircut is a very appropriate and patriotic gesture by one of the Cardinals' most vocal players. Hats off to you, Dockett, for honoring the men and women who lost their lives on that fateful day.
