I attended my first cheer leading exhibition this past weekend; it was a dress rehearsal for my granddaughter’s cheer team before they enter the competition season. I didn’t know what to expect from a bunch of middle-school cheer leader wannabees.
I was impressed with their energy (middle- schoolers, duh), enthusiasm and teamwork. I have nothing to compare to, but all the girls seemed to be enjoying themselves. Who knows what goes on behind the scenes or during the stress of the competition season; cat fights come to mind. RrrrrRRRhhh!
That evening, I watched the 3-6 Huskers knock off the undefeated sixth-ranked Michigan State Spartans 39-38 with 17 seconds left. When the game clock read 0:00, the entire state became cheer leaders.
Thought for the Day: Without cheer leaders, it’s just a game. Anonymous
