Cheerleader Tryouts

Being an expert at The Chicken Dance doesn’t guarantee you a spot on the team.

On the weekend Jodster, one of the founding fathers of Useless Advice From Useless Men, asked me to accompany him to Tiger-Cat cheerleader tryouts. If you're thinking what I think you're thinking, you're probably right.

Jodster tried out.

It was an amusing train-wreck - one that was wrecked on purpose in order to bring smiles to people’s faces, as my purpose there was to film the entire 'incident'. But in reality, Jodster didn't have to try hard to make a fool of himself in front of the girls.

The afternoon wasn't simply spent watching girls dance. Okay I'll be honest. It was. But in addition to that, I filmed Jodster as he interviewed some of the girls trying out, as well as the Ti-Cats Head Cheerleading Coach & Choreographer, Leslie Stewart.

If you want to see who the cheerleaders were last season, you can check them out here. On the bio page you'll note that the status of half the girls is "single". I think they do this so that guys will think they can "get" them, and come to the games. However, I think the website should say things like:

Rosie
Status: In a rocky relationship

Charlotte
Status: In a relationship, but looking to experiment

Monique
Status: In desperate need of a one night stand.

There's some logic behind this. Not a lot, but some, I assure you. If the girls are simply listed as "single", some guys might think that they aren't looking for a relationship at the moment. That they want to be single, or maybe even that they’re too hard to "get". But if the girls look vulnerable, or available, chances are a couple of guys will think they can rush in and rescue the girl from the jerk she's with.

And those guys are me and the Jodster. So back off everybody. Don't make us dance…

It's probably true. You know if they put bi-curious as their interests...even MORE guys would come to games.

Sorry, it's not actually a link to a video. It's a screen-capture from the video we shot.

Ya know, I would expect such thoughts from American men, but... you are Canadian. Sigh, I figured that the men from the north were more appreciative of women.
