NFL Takes Advice from 11-Year-Old Fan
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the NFL has been showing its support in more ways than one. This Sunday, when the Miami Dolphins go against the New York Jets, there will be a new addition to the stadium, thanks to an 11-year-old boy’s letter.
Dante Cano, 11 wrote a letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell which said:
“My name is Dante Cano. I am 11 years old and I am from Marlboro, New Jersey. I wanted to know if you could use my idea of pink penalty flags in October for breast cancer awareness,” the boy wrote.
Needless to say, we’ll be seeing a lot more pink this weekend.
“Dante had a great idea and I am looking forward to meeting with him on Sunday to put it into action,” Goodell said. “Sometimes the simplest ideas can be the best. I applaud Dante for sending in his recommendation.”
To reward Dante for his ingenuity and initiative, he’ll be on the field this Sunday to present the new pink penalty flags to the game officials.
