Congratulations to the Canadian Women's hockey team who just won another world championship tonight...but pink jerseys?! Apparently they are a throwback to the old days of 1990 when they actually wore pink. What was that all about? What does that say about how seriously we took our female athletes in the 1990's? Were they not good enough to wear the Canadian red and white like other Canadian athletes?
Anyways, they are auctioning off the pink jerseys worn by the women on ebay and the proceeds are going to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Great that they are raising awareness about breast cancer and donating money but how come we never see men's teams doing this sort of thing? Imagine the media frenzy that would ensue if the Canadian men's team wore pink jerseys. I bet Sidney Crosby's pink jersey could get a hell of a lot of money.
