"There's a REVOLUTION going on in men's cheerleading!"

The Baltimore Ravens had male cheerleaders as far back as 2002. I don't keep tabs on cheerleading squads, so not sure if they kept it going. Yes, that's the NFL and the crew that brought us the amazingness of Stacy Keibler.

It's a more common thing in college football, too. For instance, Texas always loved to rag Texas A&M for having male cheerleaders.

Other sports have had "dance teams" or "spirit teams" featuring guys. The Marlins famously had the "Manatees"-- a buncha' fat guys who would get jiggy with it.


As for "why you watch this shit". I was a huge football fan, growing up, but in my adult life have become a casual bandwagoner. Due to "life things", but I also got sick of the growing obsession with fantasy football.I used to live and die with my Local NFL Team, but my interest was greatly strained in the 2008 season.

I like watching college games, because the offenses are so varied... but my alma mater doesn't have a football team, so I feel like the solo weirdo watching people at the public pool.
