After the Los Angeles Angels lost their 12th game in a row earlier this month, Joe Maddon got a mohawk in an attempt to loosen things up during an obviously tense time for the team.

But ESPN's Tim Kurkjian says that the players never actually saw the 68-year-old's mohawk, because he was fired by the team just hours after getting the haircut:
