Now this sort of pisses me off.

What are ya gonna do when you get this kind of material handed to you on a silver platter, yet must make serious smack-talk restriction adjustments all because we live in such a completely sadly PC world.

The title is all we get. This world is going to hell in a hand-basket.

Crap...Plus--a little worried some of our guys are going to be in pink as well.

Pink, green and gold... They clash!

Pink and purple were made for one another, imo

Brett Favre, Chad Greenway, Chester Taylor and Antoine Winfield won't be making a fashion statement wearing pink cleats on Monday Night Football on Oct. 5 against the Green Bay Packers.

The Viking starters have agreed to wear the customized cleats to support the NFL's breast cancer awareness effort for Week 4, and pink is the internationally recognized color for the cause.

Greenway said he'll be proud to wear the shoes because of his family's close connection to breast cancer. His grandmother and his wife Jennifer's grandmother both passed away after battles against cancer. Chad is the team spokesman for breast cancer awareness.

Favre's wife, Deanna, is a cancer survivor, and she has been a notable activist with her Deanna Favre Hope Foundation.

Players from around the league will wear the pink cleats and many are also expected to wear pink gloves.
