Shauna: NFL Jocks Hitting the Pink

The official color for the month of October? Hint; it ain’t orange and black. But if you happened to say pink, you’re totally in the know! And this month, it’s all about showing off your PINK Pride in support of one almighty cause, Breast Cancer Awareness! So whether you’re blushing in a pastel shade or showing off your electric personality in neon, PINK is the "IT" color to be seen in. Especially if you’re a football player. You heard me right. Football players like Tom Brady, Eli Manning and Drew Brees are all sporting the "girlie" color this month while on the field. In order to show their support for the NFL sponsored campaign, "A Crucial Catch". Throughout October, the game of pro football is going to resemble something straight out of a Pepto-Bismol commercial. There’ll be PINK splashed all over game-balls, the referees, coaches and players, the fields themselves. All to help raise awareness and money for this critical cause. Then all the PINK clothing accessories worn by these NFL gladiators – from shoes to the uniforms – will be auctioned at month’s end to raise money for the campaign. And you thought pink was just for girls…phish!!! Shauna Swanson Shauna is a buyer for the Hobbs and Spectators clothing stores in downtown Lawrence.

    just a question, couldnt they have spent the money making all this pink stuff and just donated it to the cause? Seems way to commercialized to be worth it.

    I agree with DPW — it’s time to have a prostate cancer color.

    Way too much publicity for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. People need to get acquainted with this organization — it’s not all about curing cancer.

    This organization has now become political by funding Planned Parenthood.

    Why is there always an agenda. With the trillions of dollars in private and government money given to help cure cancer — just how far have we come?

    I’m pretty sure it’s all auctioned off at the end, so they raise a fair amount of money that way.

    If men on a football field are asked to wear pink to support breast cancer awareness, WNBA players should wear black and blue to support testicular cancer.

    And this won’t be popular but really – what does creating breast cancer awareness really accomplish? More women going in for mammograms? Earlier detection? And this message is reaching women by being promoted thru the NFL and MLB? Makes little sense. Why not make the contestants on American Idol and Dancing w the Stars wear pink, or the cast of Glee, or Desperate Housewives? More women watch that stuff than pro football and baseball. Just sayin. Not knockin, just sayin.

    Talk about IRONY!

    Most male athletes are mysoginist’s at worst, or Don Draper-ish at best.

    The notion that they care about boobs above and beyond their own entertainment is ridiculous.

    I’m sure this is just Mrs Goodell’s ,(former FOX NEWS anchor Jane Skinner’s) way of making the hubby come off as a “sensitive guy”.

    Pro athletes should just make it rain with donations to cancer research instead of lapdances for a couple of years

    The reason they don’t just donate the money is that the creation of products and promotions heightens the awareness of the cause. Writing a check is very helpful and important but does little to create further interest and awareness. Gotta have both, the checks and the pink Nikes.

    Awareness is for pussies. U2 raised awareness of Amnesty International way back in the day. Those problems still exist.

    George Clooney and Darfur, the Muslims are still trying to kill the African Slaves.

    Haiti, those sumbitches are still living in the streets.

    Sarah Palin raised awareness of stupidity. It still exists.

    I’ll take right wing money over left wing awareness any day.
