WTAE ^ | September 29, 2011

PITTSBURGH -- Thousands of bras stretch all the way across Pittsburgh's Hot Metal Bridge that connects the South Side Flats and South Oakland.

"Bras Across the Bridge" is hosted by American Eagle's Aerie, in connection with the Bright Pink nonprofit group that promotes early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women.

"I think it's interesting that we're doing this project on the Hot Metal Bridge that was built in the 1800s and used to carry thousands of tons of molten steel back and forth," said Marcie Eberhart, of American Eagle Foundation.

I'm not sure I get the molten steel-bra connection but whatever.

Awareness? Really? Is there anyone left in America who is not thoroughly aware of breast cancer?

I want Marcie and James May to trade interesting facts.

Is this really going to work? IF this actually works, then can putting bras on bridges also balance the federal budget?

How about hanging jock straps on a bridge for prostate cancer?

Exactly. "Thanks, I'm aware. Been aware for many years now. Can you stop packaging my favorite products in pink now?"

What! That's a guy disease . . . no time for that . . . we need the Susan Koman foundation to collect money and then turn lots of it over to Planned Predators to help kill innocent unborn Americans!

And then we need the NFL to have their players wear sissy-fied, girly pink colors on their uniforms.

Men's diseases? Forget it!

They’re just hanging them like from a clothesline.

I imagined they would connect each to the next, end-to-end, in a chain.

I know what you mean. The Pigs-burg Squealers don't have cheerleaders anymore because they can't graze on astro-turf.

What is the male analog to a “slut walk”? Pimp walk? No not quite. Disgusting lounge lizard walk? Creepy peepers walk?

I had this very dream, last night.

Only our national flag was the bra.

I bet that was funny a decade or so ago, before the Steelers started playing on grass.

I imagine a windy day, and undergarments strewn across the tri-state area.

I guess all those “Bra Trees” that I see at a ski area after Spring Break are intended to make me aware of Breast Cancer? No? Maybe that’s alcohol awareness or pre-marital sex awareness?

Nothing like a re-cycled joke from a Browns fan. So, I guess their cheerleaders CAN graze on grass now!

I hate cancer as much as the next guy or gal. In fact, my father passed away from cancer merely 6 months ago. However, idiot stunts like this and the “let's make male athletes wear pink crap” is a useless waste of time which helps no one. This only serves to make a few panty waste libs feel smug about themselves.
