To Infinity … And A Pink Cast?

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 1, 2012 – 5:13 pm

Injured Redskins long snapper Nick Sundberg can’t exactly participate in October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month festivities at FedExField, so he’s doing whatever he can to make up for it.

Sundberg — who played an entire half with a broken arm Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints before being placed on IR — today tweeted out the above photo of his new hot pink cast.

The shades are also a nice touch, Nick.

And one more thing: I’ll look beyond the fact that this photo is the typical “picture of yourself in the bathroom mirror” shot that often plagues my Facebook feed simply because Sundberg has an awesome Toy Story shower curtain.

Anyway, Sundberg has great timing, considering tomorrow is the official kickoff of the various Redskins’ “Think Pink” initiatives this month.

Tanya Snyder — wife of Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder and NFL Breast Cancer Awareness Spokesperson — Chris Cooley, the Redskins’ franchise leader in receptions by a tight end, and the Washington Redskins Community Relations Department, in partnership with the American Cancer Society, will kick off the month-long campaign by hosting the fifth annual All-Star Survivors Celebration at Redskins Park tomorrow.

More than 20 area women currently battling breast cancer, or “All-Stars,” will attend an afternoon of pampering, support and celebration. The breast cancer survivors will receive new jeans donated by Gap Inc., as well as new wigs, scarves, makeup and a custom-made pink and burgundy Redskins jersey.

The All-Stars will also be wearing pink New Era caps on-field during player introductions at the Redskins breast cancer awareness game, which will be held during Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Be sure to follow the Redskins’ Twitter and Instagram feeds tomorrow for coverage from the All-Stars Survivors Celebration.

Anyway, to pay tribute to Sundberg’s Toy Story shower curtain, here’s this (via asballete on YouTube):
