The Pink Cleat Fiasco

by Liz Colville

A football coach in Mississippi was unable to stomach the idea of one of his players wearing pink cleats during a game, even though the cleats were given to him by his breast cancer survivor grandmother in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Chris Peterson was reprimanded once for wearing the cleats during a game, and when he showed up to practice in them the following week, the coach kicked him off the team. Now the kid is suing! Yay!
