Young men in pink

When two great-nephews, on two separate Hoopfest teams, arrived at their games Saturday in electric pink team shirts, I knew we weren't in boomer-color rules anymore.

In my younger years, no teen boy would be caught wearing pink.

But everywhere at Hoopfest Saturday, I saw boy teams in electric pink. And fluorescent lime was popular with the boys, too.

Perhaps the gender color barriers -- blue for boys, pink for girls -- are gone for good.
