With Wright signing the extension (told ya) Terry Collins said he would discuss becoming team captain with him. So this being Movember of course the question then becomes, would Wright grow a mustache if he became Captain? After all, two of the Mets captains in the past have been known for their mo’s.
Of course speaking of mo’s, today is the final day of Movember, which means it’s the last day to donate to the Blue Cap Army’s fund raiser to help fight prostate cancer.
The 7 Line is on board with these efforts and will be donating 20% of the sales from this Bobby V tee shirt to The Blue Cap Army’s Movember fund raiser.
Of course you can always donate directly to The Blue Cap Army – whatever you can give will go towards helping fight testicular and prostate cancer.
Approximately 1 of every 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point within their lifetime. In perspective that means that 5 members of the Mets 40 man roster will probably contract prostate cancer.
Not counting some forms of skin cancer, prostate cancer in the United States is—
- The most common cancer in men, no matter your race or ethnicity.
- The second most common cause of death from cancer among white, African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, and Hispanic men.
- The fourth most common cause of death from cancer among Asian/Pacific Islander men.
- More common in African-American men compared to white men.
- Less common in American Indian/Alaska Native and Asian/Pacific Islander men compared to white men.
- More common in Hispanic men compared to non-Hispanic men.
In 2008 (the most recent year for which numbers are available)—
- 214,633 men in the United States were diagnosed with prostate cancer.
- 28,471 men in the United States died from prostate cancer.
