Both you and Sarah and not understanding cheerleading!

I'm not sure about cheerleaders assisting in victory either. Furthermore, pep band members are usually subjected to ridicule by jocks unless there's a championship at stake. Sadly, sometimes band members had the best weed so maybe it was a jealousy thing?

Oh...and at many small midwestern high schools, it is a scientific fact that cheerleaders break out in hives if they are forced to count on the off beats (i.e. 2 and 4).

Just thought I'd mention that one too.

Roonie, I love my cheerleader buddies. But as an athlete, and maybe this is because I played girls sports and no one ever came to our games, I know that cheerleaders did not make me want to play better. Now that I am at a high school that does hard core tumbling I sort of get that, but I just dont see the power of cheer.
Perhaps men really do need women to support them even in athletic competition:) I sure know I survived years of competion with out a treat bag or elaborate scrapbook.

You know, out of all the years that I was a cheerleader, and being the feminist that I am, I never once thought that I was "doing it for the guys." I did it for myself; it was fun to hone my art skills in signmaking and dance around being silly. I never ever thought about it being for anyone else but myself. I know that sounds impossible, and maybe sarcastic, but I swear - I never thought about cheerleading being anything but what I liked to do for ME. You know I don't take very well to support roles!

Yeah, why is it that in high school kids are made fun of because they are in the band but people act like OSU's band is the most remarkable feat in the world. My husband has never missed Michigans band and he plays their CD's all day every game day and seriously, has anyone every watched the BET Southern Classic? It is the most amazing musical competition and the fans go stinking nuts! It is wierd that the persona changes when you hit the college. Wierd
