Marcus Allen, an NFL Hall of Fame running back and football analyst, won’t be the only one glued to the Big Game this weekend, when the Baltimore Ravens challenge the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. It promises to be a great one, a battle of the Harbaugh brothers that should make parents everywhere envious—well, except maybe Archie and Olivia Manning. But for Allen, perhaps even more important than this great American tradition is what the NFL is tackling on the sidelines. Together with the Urology Care Foundation, the league has launched the “Know Your Stats” About Prostate Cancer campaign, an initiative to encourage men to talk to their doctors about whether they should be screened for prostate cancer.
