Prostate Cancer Foundation Teams Up With Legendary Athletes to Ask: Why ...

I can identify Rosy Grier and Vida Blue, but don't know who the others are. 


Like Anna, I have misgivings when I see something like this. Stereotypes can be such ugly things. Or just plain frustrating. Not sure why I'm more willing to give this ad a pass, but I am. Maybe it's because Rosy is knitting awkwardly and that the scarf he is knitting seems to say something about bacon...


I notice they had Betty White stitching with an embroidery hoop on Saturday Night Live. She looked very uncomfortable with that hoop.

I'm never quite sure how to take these things that so willingly exploit stereotypes. But really, why is Rosie Greer knitting (and not well)? We all know he's a needlepointer.

Rosey's scarf says "I (heart) bacon."
