If you watched NFL games this weekend or have seen highlights of games today, you surely noticed that the NFL and its teams have included the color pink into their color concepts. This is in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, something the league and its teams are prominently promoting in October.
Prominently promoting will be an understatement tonight at Mall of America Field at the HHH Metrodome. Players will be wearing pink wristbands, sideline hats will have pink in them, there will be a logo on the field, the goal post pads will be pink, fans will be waving pink towels and volunteers, including the Vikings Women’s Organization, will be handing out pink ribbons to fans outside of the stadium and in the concourse.
In addition, and as you’ve seen many other players do this weekend, several Vikings players will be wearing pink shoes to support the initiative. QB Brett Favre, LB Chad Greenway and RBs Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor will be the players wearing pink shoes.
