Auditions for the Philadelphia Soulmates are next month. To give hopefuls an idea of what to expect during the audition process, the squad held workshop, where we learned what NOT to do when trying out.

Carley might be dressed appropriately for a hip-hop audition but not for Soulmates tryouts.
You can’t tell from this photo but Kayia has an uncovered tattoo.

It wasn’t all gag auditions though, participants learned a routine and then performed at a mock audition.
We saw a lot of pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month last week, but nobody does pink quite like the Sea Gals! You have to love ‘em. HUGE thanks to the team’s Director/Choreographer Sherri Thompson for these fantastic BIG photos of the ladies in action last weekend. (Click each photo to view full size.)
…and I promise you, sooner or later, I’m gettin’ me a pair of those pink boots. Don’t know where I’ll wear them, but they will be mine. Oh yes.
Last Sunday was very colorful inside Ray Jay Stadium in Tampa. The Buccaneer players were BLACK and BLUE before the first quarter ended. The halftime showcase performance was endzone to endzone PINK and it seemed like the only fans who stayed for the second half all had PURPLE jerseys on.
My only comments regarding the Buc’s football play against the Ravens is “No Comment Sir”.
The Buccaneer hierarchy, in concert with the TBBC, did a masterful job with the halftime presentation. Hundreds of invited guests on the field designed human pink ribbons for the breast cancer awareness salute. The USF cheer and dance teams also were in attendance performing stunts. Kudos out to Tara Battiato and her team for a great entertainment show.
Dancing along Wall Street in New York City you can find Gotham City Cheerleaders practicing their amazing moves. These girls are intense and they mean business both in rehearsal and in the parking lot during Giants games. In their quest to be the Giants cheerleaders, the Gotham City Cheerleaders have rehearsals on Wednesdays and on Saturdays for several hours, as you can see these girls mean business and the Giant fans love them!
Gotham City Cheer-Captain, Bri Anna Barnett, talks a little about what it takes to be a Gotham City Cheerleader.
“We as members of the team, we are always on our toes. Can’t let our fitness slack, because you can always be replaced,” she said.
While the Giants NFL team has never had their own cheerleaders, fan of the Big Blue have nothing bad to say about these ladies.
“You see when the girls show up everyone’s faces light up, all the cameras come out and it’s a different dynamic. It’s excellent. Giants notoriously don’t have cheerleaders. So to have these girls out here in parking lot with us getting the crowd going right before the game is excellent,” one fan said.
The Executive Director of the Gotham City Cheerleaders, Ana De Villegas, wants to make sure that everyone knows the true role of a cheerleader.
“The goal is to be the entertainment for pre-game and halftime shows. People have preconception we want to be on sidelines. That’s not the case,” she said.
Some fans can’t seem to understand why the Giants are the only team without their own official cheerleaders.
“I don’t really understand what the deal is. The Jets have cheerleaders. Everybody has cheerleaders. Everybody loves cheerleaders. I don’t think there are words to explain how hot they are,” one male fan said.
The Utica Comets of the American Hockey League are proud to announce the final roster for Sitrin Comettes Dance Team.
The Sitrin Comettes are a 13 member high-energy dance team that will entertain fans at Comets home games throughout the 2014-15 season. The Comettes will also be very active in the community by appearing and performing at events throughout Mohawk Valley.
Tryouts for the Comettes dance team took place on Friday, Aug. 22 at Tony’s AUDelicious Deli & Sports Bar. Over 35 girls from the Mohawk Valley attended tryouts. The Comets and Sitrin would like to thank everyone that tried out for the team, as well as the celebrity judges. The final decision was not an easy one.
The Comets and Sitrin are proud to announce that the following 13 girls made the Comettes final roster:
Perhaps you think that it’s rather cliché to ask your significant other to marry you in front of tens of thousands of people at a sporting event, where your answer will be recorded on the stadium’s video board.
But what if the marriage proposal took place on the field among your work colleagues, and he was dressed handsomely in his military uniform? That would be a pretty tough request to turn down, right?
Fortunately, that was the case for US Air Force captain Erick Straub, who proposed to Cardinals cheerleader Claire Thornton during the first half of the Washington-Arizona game on Sunday. Considering she’s showing off the ring in the above photo, –and by the evidence from this video — I assume she said “yes.”
But Thornton wasn’t the only NFL cheerleader to get engaged. Falcons cheerleader Sydney was also betrothed this weekend, via the Falcons cheerleaders’ Instagram page.
So, a hearty Mazel Tov to all the affected parties. May your happiness continue to grow even when all the recording cameras are switched off.
The Orlando Prowler Dancers— my final backlog album that got caught up in our web site problems.
I attended the Predators first round playoff victory game, against the Pittsburgh Power, which was played on the UCF college campus. Next season the team, under new ownership, will return to the Orlando Amway Arena for home field games.
The Prowler Dancers are a very cohesive attractive group of professional dancers who truly enjoy performing in such an electric atmosphere as Arena Football Playoffs. The action is quick, the fans are close and winning is sweet.
Our thanks go to Prowler Director, Billie O’Hara, for giving UltimateCheerleaders access to her talented ladies. Wishing everyone a relaxing off season except for Sara and Cassie—both of whom which are moving on to dance in the NBA for the Orlando Magic.
I enjoyed photographing the Prowler Dancers—a fun group.

BUFFALO, NY – If you’ve been on Twitter and Facebook lately you may have been seeing a lot of the hashtag “Bring Back the Jills.”
A former Buffalo Jill is rallying to bring back the NFL cheerleading team with a new T-shirt campaign and she’s using that hashtag to help do it.
Gabrielle Farah has created these shirts to bring awareness not only for the fans who are feeling the loss of the Jills on game day but to show that the Jills are missing being out on the field as well.
“It’s pretty much to get our name out there,” she told 2 On Your Side. “People are missing us on the field. We were such a big voice in Buffalo.
We had such a strong leadership role for women in our community.”>
She hopes that under the new ownership of Terry and Kim Pegula that the Jills will be back someday soon.
The shirts come in red and blue with the phrase “Bring Back the Jills” on each side.
There is also a limited edition grey shirt as well.
The proceeds from the shirts will go toward fundraising for their comeback, and a portion will be donated to Hunter’s Hope.
