Chick Hernandez And The Greatest Afros In Redskins History

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 16, 2014 – 4:04 pm

Chick

I have no doubts CSN Washington anchor Chick Hernandez rises in the morning and likes what he sees in the mirror.

Chick is confident man in a profession of confident men. If he didn’t like what he saw, he probably wouldn’t put it on camera. But maybe some mornings he looks at his closely cropped hair and remembers what was with a pang of nostalgia.

There was a time, a golden age for anchormen, when Chick’s head sprouted hair so abundant it would make Pam Grier weep. 

 

 

Inspired by Herndandez’s far-out follicles, I compiled a list of the grooviest afros in Redskins history off the top of my head. I’m sure I’m leaving someone out, and I don’t want to insult anybody, so I’ll need your help.

Who had the coolest afro in Washington? If you don’t like these options, send in some of your own.

KEN HOUSTON

Give him extra credit for the chops.

JOHN RIGGINS

Riggins’ fro was probably at its peak with the Jets, but this is quite strong on its own. Pirate mustache ftw.

CHRIS COOLEY

This is more of a three days camping out at Coachella without a shower ‘fro.

SEAN TAYLOR

Out of our options, this afro hit the hardest for the late safety.
