Blue Arm Bands

12:55 UPDATE - Thanks to Rachel Caton at the Pac-10 offices for sending this over about the Blue ArmBands worn this past weekend by Officials during PAC-10 games

PAC-10 FOOTBALL OFFICIALS TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT PROSTRATE CANCER SCREENING: Pac-10 officials working the five Conference games on Nov. 7 will be wearing blue arm sleeves on one arm as part of a prostate cancer awareness campaign in partnership with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

Trying to get confirmation on why the PAC-10 officials were wearing blue armbands over the weekend.

After my post last night, numerous folks flocked to the site in search of the answer. I brought them false hope as I was only asking the question. So now I hope to find the answer.

The best information that I have is that it was to raise awareness to prostate cancer. We're waiting on confirmation from the PAC-10 if that is truly the case.

Will update when I have more.
