Chuck Pagano, Pat McAfee crack eggs on their heads for pediatric cancer


INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — First it was ice, now it's eggs. The ice bucket challenge was a popular campaign to raise awareness and money for Lou Gehrig's disease.

Now, it appears some big names in sports are moving past ice and onto eggs to raise awareness for pediatric cancer. It's called the #CrackCancer challenge. Participants smash eggs on their heads and nominate others to do the same.

Former Colts head coach Chuck Pagano got in on the challenge Tuesday with some of his defensive players for the Chicago Bears.

He nominated former Colts punter Pat McAfee, who had some friends along for the fun.

McAfee had his friends stand on a balcony above him and drop eggs onto his head. Turns out, his friends have some pretty good aim.

McAfee went on to nominate Houston Texans player JJ Watt, ESPN host Mike Greenberg and newly cemented game show legend "Jeopardy" James Holzhauer. McAfee recently had all three on his podcast, "The Pat McAfee Show 2.0."

To see other athletes, coaches and sports media take part in the challenge, check out the #CrackCancer hashtag on Twitter.
