Learning From Cheerleading

It’s the time of year when every NFL team is waist deep in analyzing scouting reports.  They’re trying to find the next diamond in the rough; the next game changer.  Excitement is definitely building as we get closer and closer to the 2012 Draft.  I’m not sure if you know it, but there is another type of talent search going on.  The NFL is also waist deep in tryouts for personnel other than football players.  They are looking for cheerleaders.

Many talented women have under gone intense scrutiny regarding cheering, dancing, general physical fitness, and team work.  Although comparing football players and cheerleaders is kind of like comparing apples and oranges, I couldn’t help but think that football players could learn some things from them.

1 I have never seen a cheerleader line up in the wrong formation.

2 I have never seen a cheerleader show up on game day and not perform as well as they did in practice.

3 Cheerleaders don’t take a break when the offense comes of the field.

4 I have never heard of a cheerleader holding out because she only received a $1M dollar bonus instead of $5M.

5 I have never seen a cheerleader choke in the 4th quarter.

And finally…

6 I have never heard of a cheerleader missing a game because of turf toe.

So let’s give these ladies a hand.  This cheerleading thing is tougher than we thought.  I wish the best of luck to all the candidates.  I hope the 2012 Rams give them something to cheer about.
