The NCAA, NFL, high school football on ESPN, and now the CFL has gone overboard on this breast cancer thing!
When are we going to get a bunch prostate cancer awareness things going on, next?
Pink is the color for women. Are we going to get the players, coaches, and cheerleaders to wear powder baby blue (the color for men) as part of some prostate cancer screening thing too any time soon?
Considering football is watched mostly by men you would think all of the guys that are afraid and/or too proud to have a doctor put his finger up your rear end to check for prostate cancer doesn't get placed ahead in the priority list for breast cancer is absolutely dumb...FOR A SPORT VIEWED BY MEN.
I think this has more to do with selling more merchandise (pink stuff) than anything else.
Can you picture the staff, actors, orchestra, and management wearing baby blue at professional plays attended mostly by women to get men to get a prostate exam??? Neither can I!
