Refs will wear pink

During October, NFL officials will wear a pink ribbon patch and a pink bracelet to honor National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

It’s the second consecutive year the NFL Referee Association has partnered with Dallas-based Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

The partnership will be formally announced Sunday at Texas Stadium before the Cowboys’ game against Washington. NFLRA officials will present a check to Komen representatives.

That’s kinda nice.  They were wearing them for the Monday Night game (on September 29), so I wonder if that crew got the memo.

Guest Photo, and a Caption Contest

A reader wrote to offer a picture taken in his ED, and it’s not just an excellent photo, it begs for a caption contest!


His introduction to the photo: “Just walked in to start my shift at 6:30am and this was sitting on the counter…”

As usual, the rules for a caption contest here: Put you submission in the comments, I decide the winner, and the prize is the pride you get from lording your superior captioning skills over the losers other submissions.  Polls close in a week, or when there’s a clear winner.
