    Jets-Phins to feature Pink Flags Sunday

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/stor...-new-york-jets

    NEW YORK -- There will be more pink visible on the field during the Dolphins-Jets game this weekend.

    The NFL announced Wednesday officials will be using pink penalty flags for Sunday's game after an 11-year-old wrote commissioner Roger Goodell with the suggestion.

    In support of breast cancer awareness, pink has been highly visible this month, from coaches' caps to players' wristbands and cleats, and even officials' whistles.

    Dante Cano, a fifth-grader from Marlboro, N.J., then offered the idea of pink penalty flags. The NFL agreed and invited Cano and his family to MetLife Stadium; they will present the penalty flags to the officials before the game.

    "Dante had a great idea and I am looking forward to meeting with him on Sunday to put it into action," Goodell said. "Sometimes the simplest ideas can be the best. I applaud Dante for sending in his recommendation."

    Enough with the pink already! It just looks stupid. Clashes with everything. And I can't imagine it actually helps anybody except the producers of pink stuff.

    I think ten years from now it's going to be very hard to explain.

    All I know is that Dante is a boy and he requested that the color pink(a color associated more often than not with girls) be involved in an NFL game.

    His friends(or whatever friends he will have left that haven't accused him of having cooties or something) will razz him something fierce for this.



    And this whole pink thing has become overkill. We have enough to properly pay respects to Breast Cancer Awareness.

    A little boy thinks of a way to promote BCA and we find a way to take issue with it. Oh, man...

    We've officially surpassed Philly fans and their booing of Santa.

    No. I'm just pointing out that he's going to get razzed by his "friends".

    BCA or not, you think his friends give a rat's ass about WHY he did that? No. All they know is their friend who is a BOY suggested that the NFL put the color PINK(a color associated with Girls) on the Penalty Flags.

    The Color PINK is what they will think about and care about. Nothing else.

    And it's STILL overkill for BCA since we already have enough for it.

    Boy: "Dad, why did they have pink stuff on their uniforms?"

    Father: "The NFL was honoring Breast Cancer Awareness month."

    Boy: "Nice."

    Father: "Whew...that was really hard...I need to sit down."

    Boy: "But dad! The Jets looked like watermelons and mom still died of breast cancer! Why didn't you do something to stop this madness?"

    Father: "I tried son. I made this snarky comment on a Jets fan forum site but it didn't change anything. It was all I could do."

    Boy : "Where do babies come from?"

    Father : "Some guy named Cro."

    Boy : "oh okay." *boy leaves*

    Father : "I need a drink.."
