(Pipe dream of course, but what if they invited ALL the NFL Cheerleading squads to the Super Bowl)
Cheerleading and dance squads from all the CFL teams competed for top honours Saturday, November 29, 2014 at the Vancouver Convention centre as part of the 2014 Grey Cup festivities.
THE AMAZING RACE CANADA is looking for dynamic and enthusiastic teams of two who possess a strong personal connection. They must be articulate, competitive, interesting, outgoing, and love a great adventure. Teams can be any age, any size, any occupation, from anywhere in the country, as long as they believe they can WIN the most amazing race this country has ever seen!
Teams will compete for a life-changing grand prize and complete many exciting Detours, Roadblocks, and U-Turns alongside other amazing Canadians. The time commitment is approximately 28 days of the Race in various conditions, environments, and climates from sea to sea to sea and perhaps even around the world!
This is a guest post from out good friend Elizabeth Morgan an alumnae of the CFL Toronto Argonauts, CFL Hamilton Tiger Cats and NFL Buffalo Bills Cheerleaders.
On October 18 at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, fans were treated to an exciting halftime show performed by the CFL Toronto Argos Cheerleader Alumni. The event was part of the Argos’ annual PINK game to raise money and awareness for women’s cancers. This year’s cause specifically was Ovarian cancer. Touches of teal were sported by the ladies, among the PINK and of course, the Argos’ traditional double blue colours.
Elizabeth on the field
Close to 100 ladies, who cheered for the Argos from the 1970’s up to 2013, performed a five-minute routine that featured retro, rock, hip hop and pop music. After just a few pre-event rehearsals and a quick run-through all together before the game, the talented ladies of the double blue took to the field at half-time to thunderous applause. They danced while video images of the Argos cheerleaders from many decades graced the Jumbotron.
The groups who performed include the ‘Double Blue Thunder’ Argos Alumni Cheerleaders (1996-2013) and the Argos Sunshine Girls (1970’s-1996).

Women’s cancers have touched the lives of each of these alumni, either directly or through family members/friends battling the disease. Thus, this performance was an important demonstration of support and of teamwork to further research, treatment and support.
The Toronto Argos played the Montreal Alouettes at this home game. While the Argos lost this particular game, it was still a resounding victory for the ladies and the PINK cause!

Besides the game performance itself, this experience represented a special opportunity to reconnect with former teammates, share memories and enjoy time together with our Alumni sisters. Following the game we danced the night away in downtown Toronto! I was honoured to participate in this game with my fellow Alumni for the fourth year in a row and we are already looking forward to next year!
