So, were not sure what the odds are (somewhere between unlikely and an absolute travesty), but there wont be cheerleaders at Super Bowl XLV.
We know that the NFL is supposed to stand for the No Fun League but this is cruel and unusual. Hell, its practically un-American.
Alas, we cant blame league officials for this one. Apparently the Packers and the Steelers dont have cheerleaders.
There are only six teams without cheer squads and two of them just happened to land in this years Super Bowl (OK, only partially true despite what some might say Green Bay actually borrows college cheerleaders).
We can understand why Green Bay doesnt have official cheerleaders. Its usually -100 to -200 F during most of the season. The poor cheer-gals would either be so covered up thered be no point, or they'd be turned black from frostbite in a matter of seconds.
Still, theres a better chance of the Packers having a squad of this guy shaking pom-poms.
And by pom-poms we mean his moobs.
As for the Steelers, well insert generic Ben Roethlisberger joke.
Side note: You find a lot of interesting photos just by Google-image searching for Steelers fans. Some not exactly safe for work, FYI.
Were also amused that sports sites arent allowed to write an article about this story without showing you a photo of the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders.
Could be because the Super Bowl is in Dallas this year. Could be the outfits. Were not saying either way.
What we do know is that most of us probably never actually read the article. In fact, we have no evidence that shows that there is a body of text to go along with these headlines and photos. We will say that.
This all begs the question: Who the hell is FOX going to point their cameras at to keep our attention while rattling off hundreds of sponsors we dont care about?
And it brings up other important issues: Whos going to teach us to spell Packers and Steelers? Whos going to tell us when to chant D-fense!? Whos going to get us in trouble with our significant others while we drool over ourselves like toddlers?
The Super Bowl is a time when heroes are born. A time for people to step it up, take charge and show leadership.
We expect nothing less to come out of the Great Cheerleader Shortage of 2011.
