The flying tomato is known for his flowing red locks, but when it's time to get off the half pipe and into a the spotlight, the extreme sports star pulls his hair back tight.

Even the two-time Cy Young-winning San Francisco Giants pitcher known for his unorthodox throwing motion and long dark hair needed to tame the mane into a slick pony for the cameras sometimes.

Before the Texans linebacker was drafted into the NFL, won Rookie of the Year and had it revoked for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs, he had a solid short pony.
