|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.
