The OHL's Mississauga St. Michael's Majors (say that three times fast) are making their contribution to the Freak Out Friday (on Friday the 13th, no less) by playing a game on pink ice. The team's making donations to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation so I guess it's all right. I'll keep an eye out for game photos.
Yeah, that's right, it gets worse. This is at least the second time they've done this!
The ECHL's Ontario Reign didn't go as far as to paint the ice, but they did don pink jerseys against the Alaska Aces last Saturday. Unfortunately, this is the best picture I could find.
I don't really have much else for you today beyond that. Those of you who wrote in about joining Icethetics as a staff writer, I plan on getting back to you soon. I appreciate your patience.
Got a follow up to this post this afternoon. We've got even more pink. First, thanks to Cwrazydog, we've got better shots of the Reign in action.
That's a great shot of the jersey itself. You can see they opted for a pink version of the secondary logo on the front. For a look at the full uniform, see below.
That's really something isn't it? I count at least five pink ribbons on that bad boy.
I also mentioned the St. Michael's Majors will be donning pink on pink ice this weekend. Our friend Vilnis sent in a picture of what it looked like last year and promises another one from this weekend.
Even the refs are getting in on the act.
In addition, the OHL's Bellville Bulls are doing the pink thing for Valentine's Day. Here you can see a player modeling one of the very, very pink sweaters.
For those of you across the Atlantic, the British Elite League is joining the fray. Check out the web sites of the Belfast Giants, Coventry Blaze, Edinburgh Capitals, and Hull Stingrays. Thanks to Andrew for this info. He also points out the the English Premier League's Romford Raiders will also be wearing something special (you have to click that link).
I'm sure there will be more to come but any additional news will get its own post. And speaking of new posts, tomorrow is Friday the 13th so how could I not try to scare you a little bit? Stay tuned for a Freak Out Friday of some sort.
