I haven't looked for any source, but I heard recently that teal-blue will be representing women's ovaries soon.

Are you aiming for the safety or the suicide squeeze with that bunt?  Guess it depends on how well one knows the squeezee whether it turns out fair or foul...

I see that Boston scored an 'inside the park home run' the other day.  Someone in a hit and run could be arrested. All this does not even touch the bull pen and who is to say what a reliever really relieves.  :shock:

Teal blue for ovarian cancer.  Colour of the month?

I've had ovarian cancer, and I tell you, teal blue was the last thing I was thinking of at the time.

But I'm just a crank. I'm not ever going to be the target audience for this sort of campaign. Who is, though?

That's just it.  No one is.  But the marketeers play on guilt and fear and voila, there's a following...

Oh my favourite whipping boy is back. How could I forget that October is breast cancer awareness month. Yikes, it's astounding how many products are buying into this campaign. Everyone is making money and it doesn't look like we are anywhere near a cure... And that pink second base t-shirt is not funny but sexist and sick. As lagatta suggested, it's making light of sexual mutilation.
