    Save 2nd Base! - Breast Cancer T-Shirts

    Breast cancer T-shirt: Save 2nd Base
    Two Kansas high school students started a breast cancer awareness campaign by selling a sassy T-shirt with the slogan "Save 2nd Base" that displays two strategically placed baseballs.



    The shirt was inspired by Kelly Rooney who died of breast cancer in July 2006 at age 43, leaving behind a husband and five children. Rooney loved the "Save Second Base" slogan so much she used it as her team name for last year's Breast Cancer 3-Day 60-mile walk.

    After she died, Rooney's sister and friend established the Save 2nd Base organization and launched a line of namesake T-shirts in her memory. Fifty percent of the proceeds benefit the Kelly Rooney Foundation.

    But when the teenagers tried to sell the shirts, school administrators said no way: the sexual innuendo was deemed inappropriate for school.

    The girls say the issue hits close to home for them; their mothers both had breast cancer and they simply wanted to raise awareness.

    I'd rather see breasts getting attention for what they're actually designed to do: feed a baby. But sometimes if you really want to get a message across, it doesn't hurt to speak to people in their own language

    And while this shirt is more appropriate for the college-aged crowd, it serves an important reminder to everyone: "Cancer can take one's hair, energy and mobility, but Kelly refused to let it take away her sense of humor," reads the Save 2nd Base Web site.

    I saw an ad for that organization at a bar in Texas last week. Pretty cool!

    It's a great idea with an awesome slogan....how can you not love that?

    Just one more example of how uptight people have become. Everyone's so god damn sensitive and easily offended.
