Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders Finally Have Their Home Opener

On October 8th the Miami Dolphins finally had their home opener with a victory over the Tennessee Titans in the the 5th week of the season. Hurricane postponements, road games and a trip to London came first.

Special day for the Miami Dolphins as they announced that the “Dolphins Cancer Challenge VII” (DCC VII) raised $6,000,157 for innovative research at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, bringing the event’s seven-year total to more than $22.5M.

For the game the Miami Dolphins and Dolphins Cancer Challenge also highlighted the NFL’s Crucial Catch campaign designed to support early detection and risk reduction of cancers. At halftime, the DCC gifted the largest single donation an NFL franchise has presented to a charity.

We know the players played well but it’s our humble opinion that the cheerleaders brought this victory home. Well worth the wait to see their performances of the day. Enjoy the photos.

Flashback Friday – Ladies of Ontario Fury

A few days ago, I learned that the Ontario Fury has decided not to field a dance team this year. With the passage of the cheerleader minimum wage law in California, the economics of offering a dance team did not work for the Ontario Fury and I would imagine several other minor league sports are also feeling the pinch. I know that the San Diego Sockers came to the same conclusion last year and the Socker Girls were eliminated.

Fact of the matter is that although professional cheerleaders were egregiously underpaid over the years, dance teams are a significant expense for most franchises and in an era of increasing costs, they have become, in many cases, expendable. And that is truly unfortunate because I know first hand the value of the Ladies of Ontario Fury and the goodwill that they fostered for the organization with their public appearances, community outreach efforts and junior cheerleader programs.

For me, this loss is devastating because I have covered the Ladies of Ontario Fury and their predecessor organization, the Anaheim Bolts Dance Team, for several years. And the most impressive thing is that under the direction of Lynae de Leon, these two programs have been a hot bed of dance talent and a breeding ground for major league cheerleaders. Lynae’s girls have gone on to perform with the Laker Girls, Charger Girls, Clippers Spirit, Sacramento Kings, 49ers Gold Rush, Denver Broncos and the Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders.

In this Flashback Friday post, we recognize the Lynae’s efforts in developing dance talent to fulfill their potential and achieve higher level success. So here are a few of Lynae’s girls from the past few years that have made it to the next level. We present: McKenzie, Sativa-Skye, Kellie, Lizzie, Krista, Courtney, Diana, Alex, and Madison.

I hope the Ontario Fury finds the resources to bring back the Ladies of Ontario Fury because they are an asset that cannot be described by mere dollars alone.
