    That's pretty classy of anyone in the NFL to do. I've recently lost 2 grandparents to cancer. So it's a cool thing to see these "tough guys" do this.

    the auctions for those items should raise some good money for the cause too. Very nice of them.

    I lost my mom to breast cancer two months before my wedding, and my aunt (her sister) last year, so I say this is awesome.

    On a related note, one of my favorite Pats mini-helmets in my collection is the pink one. You might remember those from a few years ago, a percentage of the price went to breast cancer research. ;)

    I'd say that Terdell Smith is most at risk for breast cancer. Interestingly, it's possible yet rare in males.

    There was a male TV anchor within the last 5yr or so to beat breast cancer... So yeah, it is possible but rare in males.

    It's good that they are doing this and I hope it raises $ for breast cancer research.

    I hope that they don't overdo it like baseball did.

    That is what I meant about baseball. You can bring attention to something without making it look silly. I hope that you are wrong.

    Ok so I googled it after blabbing what I heard.

    The padding on the goal posts will be pink and the ball will have a pink ribbon insigna on it.

    It's for a great cause and I don't mind it one bit just found it weird when I heard the goal posts would be pink. It's the padding not the whole posts.

    Last time I trust a radio guy.

    PROPAGANDA... some day they will find a cure for cancer, find Osama Bin Laden, AND the magic bullet that killed JFK.

    :p

    I thought the thread was going to show hot chicks or something.

    Do you guys have these in the US? They're all over the place here. I gotta admit, I concur.

    It's a great cause, but it's hard not to wonder how so much money is leading to so little progress.

    Boy, I tell ya whoever organizes the fund raising for breast cancer is a genius. Other cancer organizations are jealous - and I mean that literally. Advocates for other types of cancer feel they miss out on funding and donations since so much goes to breast cancer.

    Still, it is a very noble endeavor and it is nice to see the players bringing awareness.
