Ultimate Cheerleaders

Cheerleader Serendipity

I regularly check out the various Charger message boards to see what’s being discussed about my adopted NFL team.  I usually read some interesting tidbit about what the fans think about the Chargers.  Occasionally, I see a few of my photos posted in the inevitable Charger Girl thread.  And on rare occasions, I find a bit of cheerleader serendipity.

Let me explain.  A few weeks ago, the Miami Dolphins came to San Diego to play the Chargers.  And while I was in the Bud Light Power Party, I noticed a group of girls wearing these Dolphin tank tops.  They were all over the place, including taking photos with the Charger Girls…posing for photos with them behind the signing table, which is a no-no for most of us.  It’s a safety reason.

Anyways, I didn’t think twice about these girls because for most games, it is not uncommon for fans from the visiting team to hang around the Power Party.  Well, fast forward to yesterday.  I was perusing the Chargers’ message board and I noticed a photo of the Charger Girls.  I clicked on the photo link, which takes me to a Flickr page and I notice a couple of photos of these Dolphin girls.  I take a closer look and get the feeling that I’ve seen these girls before.  And then it hits me.  I pull up the Miami Dolphins Cheerleader’s web site and to my surprise, there they are…Fabiola, Ashton, Ashanda, Brittany F., Genesis, Tarrin, and Andrea.







I think it’s neat that the Dolphins Cheerleaders came out to San Diego to support their team.  Frankly, I always liked the idea of having the visiting team’s cheerleaders come out and perform in uniform, like you see at the Super Bowl.  That would be quite an interesting sight.  But, I am not so sure that it would be feasible or whether the home team’s squad would want to share the spotlight.

Anyway, I thought I would share this little bit of cheerleader serendipity with our readers.  Thanks to Nathan Rupert for the use of his photos under the Flickr Creative Commons license.  Check out his Flickr page here.
