Oh... great. Now I can't un-see that.
Oh come on, let's not turn this into one of those "things". Despite my poor choice of phrasing, I mean only to refer to guys who think that pink is a "girl" color that has no place in football or anywhere else that testosterone reigns supreme.
I know, it was a long winded response. haha But I was raised by my mother and aunt, and have four sisters, and yet have turned out quite "manly" (whatever in the hell that actually means).
I do admit that the "awareness" aspect and the actual funding are skewed. Really, who doesn't know that breast cancer exists?
I would like to see some advocacy in football/sports for illnesses that affect men predominantly. But prostate cancer just isn't as commercially aesthetic as "Save the Boobies!" And if Lance Armstrong wasn't such a lying liar who tainted anything associated with him "Aw, Nuts!" would be the perfect slogan for testicular cancer.
Fido - Great point, and great link! Thanks!
In regards to the pink helmets:
They looked terrible. But who cares? It's for a good cause. And I would proudly support my Buckeyes if they ever wore pink helmets. The men of our society are so inept when it comes to evolution of thought.
BuckeyeDude - You referred to yourself as 'old fashioned' because you wouldn't want the Buckeyes wearing pink helmets. What would you consider 'old fashioned'? In what era would you consider men to have been the most manliest?
Perhaps the era in which men were comfortable enough in their own manliness to dress their sons in dresses? Oh, and this just happens to correlate with the era in which adolescent boys wore pink as a symbol of their gender, whereas little girls wore blue.
I mean not to attack you, fellow Buckeye, I am just trying to share some information and get your take on it as well. Because I think we as a culture (and a sub-culture of testosterone infused football fans) need to start recognizing that making way for the "feminization" of society/football (as Pink Freakout Guy put it) does not show weakness as a man, but rather it shows our strength to allow the women of our society to be equals so that we are stronger as a society.
Besides, our Buckeye sisters are screaming right alongside us every week. They deserve recognition too.
(Sorry for the diatribe.)
Great Skull Session Nick!
Well, I had a dream Satuday night, after that amazing beat down of Nebraska, in which the Buckeyes destroyed Indiana 90 - something. Probably crazy, but hey, might as well...
The Ohio State Buckeyes - 90
Indiana Losiers - 10
- Ok, seriously, why does Community get no love?? It's one of the best shows I've ever watched. The "Digital Estate Planning" episode is one of my favorite episodes of any show. It's as nostalgic as TBDBITL's halftime show Saturday.
- I was not sold on Braxton as a Heisman candidate until the second half of the Sparty matchup. Now... I see why smarter folks than myself have been putting his name into that hat this season.
Likewise with Sullinger. I was really excited that he was drafted by the NBA team I root for, simply because he's a Buckeye. But I didn't know how effective he could be in the League. The Glen Davis comparison went through my head. I was never high on Davis. But Sullinger is the real deal.
Basically, I don't know sh*t. And I'm ok with that. GO BUCKS.
What is it about Mike Doss that makes me feel like he IS that 2002 NC Team? He has always been the image that represents that season in my mind.
Cal isnt going to score.
