VERSUS To Feature Cancer Awareness Group Tonight

We’ll often mock VERSUS at times, but this is a good idea.   Brian Hunter of on a special VERSUS feature tonight:

As part of the NHL’s “Hockey Fights Cancer” initiative and in conjunction with the Washington Capitals hosting their awareness night, Versus will feature Men With Heart during a segment of Tuesday’s nationally-televised game between the Capitals and Philadelphia Flyers.


Billy Jaffe, who will present the story, and the rest of the announcing team will be wearing the pink-striped ties that have been part of the League’s effort to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month.


“It doesn’t seem like anyone nowadays doesn’t know someone who has been affected by this disease,” Versus NHL Coordinating Producer Mike Baker said. “This is a side of it nobody’s really addressed.”

Baker became aware of Men With Heart not through their walking or fundraising, but because of their trademark yellow T-shirts, which will be featured in an introduction to the Versus segment.

Kudos to the VERSUS team for all the promotion they’ve been doing for Hockey Fights Cancer this month.  Now back to skepticism!
