Other than raising awareness and money for breast cancer research and initiatives, one of the coolest things about October in the NFL is that the league is somewhat lax on its strict uniform rules.
The players are really allowed take the “think pink” idea and run with it if they so choose, which, for the most popular sport in America, is awesome.
Above are just a few of the pink items the Redskins will be wearing on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons at FedExField and throughout the whole month of October.
Quarterback Robert Griffin III, for example, has promised that he’ll be wearing a pink sleeve on his left arm.
Injured longsnapper Nick Sundberg, meanwhile, has already had his doctor put a hot pink cast on his broken arm.
Included in the standard pink equipment above are the New Era sideline hat and skull cap, the Nike cleats and gloves, the Wilson towel and some NFL sweatbands.
You can also get your hands on your own Redskins pink gear at various team shops — including the Hall of Fame store at the stadium — and, of course, at RedskinsTeamStore.com.
And here’s another shot featuring all of the gear laid out for an appearance by Tanya Snyder, wife of Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder, on NBC-4 this morning:
Tanya Snyder is a breast cancer survivor herself, and has been one of the leading NFL figures bringing awareness to the cause.
