Men in Pink

It takes a real man to wear pink -- six of them.

The Blue Devils will be wearing pink today when they take to the ice.

The guys on New York's Fredonia State college team will trade their usual jerseys for pink ones, along with matching socks in their game with rival Courtland State.

It's part of an effort to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research. Assistant coach Greg Heffernan came up with the idea.

His mother Jane is a breast cancer survivor. Fans can think pink as well. Pink T-shirts and breast cancer awareness ribbons will be sold at the game.

Some of the pink jerseys will also be sold in a silent auction, to benefit the American Cancer Society.
