If you've been watching professional football this month, you've probably noticed a lot of pink. Sweat bands, cleats gloves, etc. The reason for this is that the league has dedicated October to breast cancer awareness, a disease that 1 in 8 women will develop in their lifetime, according to breastcancer.org.

In addition to showing solidarity with the cause on the field, several of league's biggest stars have taken their support off the field and beyond. Larry Fitzgerald, a star wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals, for instance, has pledged to donate $10,000 to breast cancer research for every touchdown he scores.

Fitzgerald's teammate, Nick Eason, also took his support off the field when he went to a mall in Minneapolis and utterly decimated a Kia Spectra with the words "Breast Cancer" spray painted on it.

"I hate breast cancer," Eason said, shortly before pouding the car to a pulp with a sledge hammer.

Eason's mother recently died of breast cancer and he was resolved to fight the disease.

"I'd wear pink even if my mom didn't have breast cancer," Eason told FOXSports.com. "Any time anyone dies from a terminal illness, it's a battle for them, a battle for that person and their caretaker."

Check out the video above to see what a 305-lb professional defensive end can do to a small sedan. Spoiler: It's pretty awesome.

      I like the girls politely clapping as he smashes the car to bits. This would make an excellent workout. Working out is so goddam boring, I could take to doing something like this on a regular basis to burn off the calories. Sure it's a waste of a car, but it's a happening if you will and will bring more awareness than just talking about how much he supports the cause. I always take issue with the money being thrown at the Cancer charities. Is anybody monitoring what these people are doing with the money, and what if any real incentive do they have for coming up with a cure. If they find a cure the money-pit will dry up and the big 'C' is a great source. Before I give money to Cancer, I want to know exactly what 'NEW' tests and procedures are being developed, or am I just paying to reduce the life-span of several thousand mice.

      Blacks should be thrown out of white schools. They are addicting with crack and the whites never recover. I hate it. Why was there more than one gang shooting? Why do blacks think it's something to do? Can't society tell something is wrong with their brains, and their thought process. All the welfare can't hardly support SS for retirement folks.

        I would love to know where ALL this HATE is coming from.Better yet who taught you.My bet is, it is your parents. It always starts at home.
        • 2 Years Ago
        It's painfully obvious that you never attended school. What does a gang shooting have anything at all to do with breast cancer? You need to return to the rock from which you slithered, as you should not be allowed out amongst humans. Let's wipe out breast cancer! And wipe this fool out along with it!!!

        Sad very sad. This was about breast cancer and you have to bring up some crapp about blacks being thrown out of white schools..... Have you been smoking CRACK??????
        • 2 Years Ago
        And BTW, from your post, everyone's wondering whats wrong with your thought process. Judge people by their individual actions, not their color, be they white, black, brown, or blue!
        • 2 Years Ago
        WTF?!?!?! Did you even read the same story as the rest of us? What the heck does gang shooting have to do with breast cancer? And I've met just as many white meth heads as I have black crack heads, how does that equate? Every race has its problems!!

      John Seffrin the CEO of the American Cancer Society still draws in a little over a million dollars a year as a salary and tell me people, where do you think that money comes from? He also gets paid well for his speaking engagements and of course has a great health insurance plan for his family..Another thought comes to mind, how much salary does a scientist make a year... a person who experiments and mixes chemicals and tries it on various scapegoats of a different genus.Money donated too is used to buy land to put buildings on where labs can be money raised is used for carpets, wall decorations, lighting, furnaces, building contractors all those things that go into making a building all paid for by....Donations. Does American Cancer Society help pay for patients bills? No. Trust me I know, first hand. Does it pay for radiation treatments and chemotherapy? No sireee. Does it pay for signs, advertisments, brochures to be printed nationwide & does it pay for John Seffrins cars and his underlings cars? Yes it does.

      Why not sell the car and donate to help a charity or cancer cure research?

        Probably because he needed a physical outlet for his anger. You can't physically attack a disease. Every bone in his body was probably busting to break something. Somethings aren't rational, they're purely emotional. I think this was one of them.

      How much did the boy raise for breast cancer? Not mentioned in the article. He probably got paid by the mall.
