What's the cure for pink ice?

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.

That is a deeply disturbing sight.

It looks like frozen Pepto-Bismol.

But good for them for raising money for cancer research. At least no one can claim they weren't aware of the promotion!

Immediately after the game they started a new fund raiser for blindness caused by the hideous ice.

Several players reported post-game rashes after playing 60 minutes on a R-80 fibreglass.

Wouldn't prostate cancer be a more relevant cause at a hockey game? Besides, I somehow suspect people are well aware of breast cancer by this point.

Sorry if it sounds callous, but I'm getting pretty Goddamned tired of breast-cancer this and breast-cancer that, yet the other two dozen or so varieties of cancer get almost completely shut out. Breast cancer is one of the most survivable ones out there -- I know a breast-cancer survivor who's still going strong after nearly ten years in remission. The efforts to get it to that point have been commendable, but don't you think it's time to give other, less sexy cancers their time in the sun? I've had relatives die of stomach, lung, and brain cancer over the last twenty months. Where's all the fucking press for them?

Ironic word verification: papsy

I wasn't aware that the color for Breast Cancer Awareness was fuschia. I thought it was light pink. Light pink would probably have looked pretty cool, IMO.
