Pink Ice, the New Fashion?

by Jes

Check out this photo ... kinda looks like two teams had a huge brawl and the ice is completely saturated in blood doesn't it?

Well, it turns out that this wasn't blood, but more of a publicity stunt aimed at a worthy cause.

The ice set a rosy stage as the Norfolk Admirals played the Hartford Wolf Pack during the first Pink in the Rink event at Scope on Saturday.

The surface, along with other events during the game, was designed to increase breast cancer awareness and education. The event also helped raise money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, an organization that helps breast cancer survivors and encourages research.

Well, it's certainly noticable, and will give you Pink Eye quite quickly, but I can't imagine trying to have to play on that.

1) Worthy cause for sure, but the picture is causing a head ache. Can't imagine staring at that for 3 hours!
I was actually at the game. It was slightly difficult to follow the players for me, but definitely a unique little promotion.
"The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

Well-meaning, but wrong on so many levels. Especially ice-level.
