TWO IN THE PINK

I’ve never been a subscriber to the whole “real men wear pink” mentality. I prefer my fellas in earth tones, greys, black, blues that don’t enter “baby” territory. But Colton Orr may just change my mind about this painfully uncool color (or colour, yes I'm bilingual).

Colton Orr fights guys AND Cancer, what do you do?
Word on the street is Leafs tough guy Colton Orr x Reebok collabo-ed to make the game’s first pink skates (supposedly set to make a game debut) to raise money and awareness to battle Cancer. 

How cool is that? 

I used to ask hockey player friends of mine if they would wear pink skates/helmet/laces if it meant they would score a goal every game. They all said no, for whatever reasons.

Alas it takes a beauty to change the game. It takes Colton Orr to make pink fucking scary. Now that's something I can get behind.

I hear a movement a' rockin'.

We can only hope.

 Peace + Love + Cancer Awareness, hockey fans.
