Pearl Gives His School the Shirt Off His Back

University of Tennessee men's basketball coach Bruce Pearl made a statement Monday night (not a fashion one, though) during the Lady Vols' basketball game with #1 Duke. Pearl spent time in the student section rooting on the girls, and he did it sans shirt. Yes, Pearl showed up with orange paint all over his torso and arms with a powder blue V painted on his ample belly. The attached AP story is complete with a photo if you're into that kind of thing.

You've either got to love this or hate it, and I personnally love it. I think it's great that Pearl wanted to show school spirit and connect with some of the students. We could have a spirited debate regarding whether or not he should have worn a shirt, but I think this was a great reminder that the whole college sports experience should be fun. In the AP picture, Pearl and the fans around him sure looked like they were having a good time, and isn't that the whole point of attending a game?

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
