Wearing Pink Socks… To Play Football?
That’s right! Tough football players wear Pink! This past season our 5&6 year old tackle football team wore pink socks the entire season to support Breast Cancer Awareness. Our uniforms are solid Blue with Gold trim with the exception of these bright Pink Under Armour socks. The boys looked awesome and for a good cause. The local paper even ran a picture of them in their socks.
I can count on one hand the times that I have wore Pink. I just really dislike the color more than anything but it does make you look a little girly. With that being said I have never saw a tougher crew rocking Pink socks. These boys wore them and not a single child complained about it. I am sure they didn’t completely understand why they wore them but it was very cool to see tough football players supporting and raising awareness for a great cause. I was very proud of the 5&6 New Hope Blue Grizzlies for the way they played this season and for wearing the Pink socks!
