Even the sky cooperated (top photo) when Rockdale and Taylor staged a “pink out” to raise breast cancer awareness during Friday’s football game at Tiger Field. Together, fans of the two teams purchased and wore 2,238 pink T-shirts—1,398 sold in Rockdale and 830 in Taylor—bearing the inscription “Two Teams, One Cause, Fighting for the Cure.” At bottom, the RHS Golden Girls drill team formed the familiar fight-cancer “ribbon” and cancer survivors were introduced to the crowd. Tina Barcak, sponsor, said the event wasn’t really planned as a fund-raiser but the two communities purchased so many T-shirts that $1,200 will be donated to the fight against cancer.
