Steelers kicker Jeff Reed goes punk

0127jefffreed Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Jeff Reed, formerly of East Mecklenburg High and the North Carolina Tar Heels, created quite a buzz at Super Bowl Media Day Tuesday with his wild hair style.

Reed (right) told his teammates he would dye his hair blonde if they made the playoffs, and he kept his word. He wore his hair Tuesday in a tall, wavy style that looked like a cross between a rock star and the Dr. Brown character (played by Christopher Lloyd) in the "Back to the Future" movies.

We talked to Reed about his hairstyle, his role as the Steelers' team comic and his excitement about being in his second Super Bowl in four years. Be on the lookout for our story online and  in the newspaper.
