October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and some NFL players are out to support and raise awareness by wearing pink cleats and gloves during this weekends games. Some of the stars donning the color will be Larry Fitzgerald, Chad Greenway, Chester Taylor, and Brett Favre. Chad Ochocinco (cleats pictured) has even taken to his twitter page and tells us all about his effort to add more to the pink ensemble with a mouthpiece and chinstrap.
Everyone considers the NFL to be full of tough, manly men; so when these athletes decide to do something “on the field” to show their support, it is a great thing to see.
-Â Even awesome sites like Midwest Sports Fans and Black Sports Online are joining in and finding their own way to raise awareness (SCP will too, if I could figure out how to change the color of the lettering)
