This week’s game for the Tide is against Missouri at Missouri. We here in the South pronounce it MaZoo. Missouri is a new comer to the SEC so that in itself will make the game interesting. What will these boys make of a strong Alabama defense and smart offense? I can’t wait to see their reactions. I have no doubt that Bama will sweep this one. The question still being “Is there anyone out there that can beat the Tide?”
Now on to the girly stuff…
What do you ladies think of all this pink on the playing fields this month? Let me go ahead and tell you that pink is my signature color, so therefore I love it in all forms. From what I can tell, it has upset some of the men out there. I am going to go ahead and call them
ignorant shallow. It has upset some of the shallower of the male species. “Pink has no place in football”, “they should be wearing the traditional colors of their team”, yada yada. A little insecure much?
The reason these men (not all of them are sporting pink accents) choose to do this is to bring awareness to a disease that kills women. Yes, women die every day from breast cancer. Of course, they may have their own selfish reason, they like boobies, 🙂 whatever. Or maybe they actually lost a mother, a sister, a wife or a daughter to this disease. For those players, they want to honor the memory of their loved one. So PLEASE tell me what is wrong with that??? Nothing.
I love to see people, who have so many eyes on them each week, stand up for such a great cause. Do they think people will think they are less of a man for wearing pink? Doesn’t matter, because these guys don’t seem to care, because who is going to walk up to a 6’5” 295 pound lineman and tell him he is girly for wearing pink?? Yea, I didn’t think so. Bringing awareness to a great cause is more important than worrying about what other people think and because of that, I commend these men. Even in the pros, they are breaking out in pink shoes, gloves, everything, it’s AWESOME. I can’t think of a more honorable way to take their “celebrity” status and use it for good. I want to say Thank You to every man out there that chooses to wear pink this month, on and off the field. Good for you! Your sisters in football and all the females in your life will appreciate you for it. So pay it forward, be a bad boy, wear your pink proudly, I am sure you will be rewarded handsomely!
Check back on Sunday for a recap of Saturday’s game. Go Pink! Opps, I mean Go Bama!
