In support of national breast cancer awareness month, an exclusive breast cancer awareness apparel package is now available at the EA SPORTS Complex within Sony’s PlayStation Home. This limited offer apparel package consists of male and female football jerseys which will be sold for $2.00 each. The jerseys will be available for purchase from October 15th through November 11th. The primary color of the jersey will be black with a pink number 9 on the front and the name “Brees” on the back panel. All proceeds from the purchase of these specially designed jerseys will go to New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees’ charity, Brees Dream Foundation in support of breast cancer awareness.
The NFL along with several NCAA Football teams have really shown their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Ranging from Pink socks and gloves to the Pink Ribbon on the 50 yard line, teams and players are donning the pink to show their support.
Recently, I attended a Pittsburgh Steelers game at Heinz Field. For those of you who don’t know, Heinz Field and their fans are notorious for their “Terrible Towels,” a yellow, mini-towel that fans wave around over their heads while screaming to psych out the opposition. Upon entering the stadium, I was handed a complimentary Steelers yearbook (very nice), as well as a pink “Terrible Towel.” It truly was a moving experience to watch over 60,000 fans waving pink towels above their heads to cheer on not only their Steelers, but Breast Cancer Awareness.
