Pretty Tough In Pink

nfl breast cancer awareness month

This weekend I off-handedly remarked to my husband that I couldn’t think of a single pro-sports team that incorporated pink into their uniform color scheme. He was watching the Colts – Titans game at the time, and said “Well, Peyton Manning is wearing a pink hat on the sidelines as we speak.” Who doesn’t love Peyton Manning, and even more so for showing his softer side? And then I noticed pink cleats and gloves on various players, like on TO clobbering Brodney Pool (above), and with a little more investigation found out the NFL is supporting National Breast Cancer Awareness month. I love it! The NFL has never looked so good, and I’m even willing give that jackalope Randy Moss (below) a free pass this week for his participation in this cause.

And for those of you who love Tom Brady (sorry, I’m a hater), here’s one more reason why he just might be the perfect male specimen (I will give you—and Giselle—that). Check out his pink kicks.

Here’s the to NFL for supporting breast cancer research. Breast cancer does not discriminate by age—two of my best friends have battled it in their 20s and 30s, and another’s mother is currently undergoing chemo. Please help support breast cancer research! And for the foodie philanthropist, check out Cook for the Cure from KitchenAid!
