MARLBORO, NJ – What a typical guy! Dante Cano’s only 11-years-old and he’s already got boobies on the brain! However, Dante’s staying abreast of the female chest for a good reason.

You’ve probably noticed NFL players showing their support for Breast Cancer Awareness month by wearing pink. Dante noticed and thought, why not take it a step further by making the penalty flags pink too?

So, he wrote a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and it didn’t take long to hear back. They’d do it!

The pink flags will fly this Sunday when the Jets face the Dolphins, and Dante will be there to personally present the pink penalty flags to the refs. We’re simply tickled pink for this kid!
