Rams Cheerleaders Spend Some Holiday Time with JBLM

St. Louis Rams
December 29, 2011

Recently, five St. Louis Rams cheerleaders and team mascot Rampage traveled to the Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBML) in Washington to bring some holiday joy to the men and women serving our country and working together to keep JBML as one of the most successful joint bases. Jessica, Jennifer, Emily S., Shannon and Jayne adventured to the base for a weekend full of events and once in a lifetime experiences.

The first stop of their visit was the fire station on base. The ladies saw the new ladder truck that the JBLM Fire Station put into service that very day. They received an inside look at the procedures and protocols for the fire fighters. Not only were they given a tour of the station, there were also able to ride in the truck, as well as the ladder bucket, up to its full 100 foot height.

For Jessica, this was one of the highlights of the trip. “As an emergency room nurse, I was honored to visit the fire station on the base and get an up close and personnel look at what pre-hospital care is all about,” she said.

Next, the group went to the McChord Main Store to sign autographs and take photos with fans. Rampage also provided lots of entertainment to the younger Rams fans on base. Rampage was the first NFL mascot to come to the Main Store to visit with soldiers and their families.

“I was also truly honored to meet the people who have sacrificed their lives to protect us, our soldiers,” said Jessica about spending time in the Main Store. “Those men and women are truly inspirational, and I am honored to have met them.”

During the meet and greet, two of the biggest Rams fans on base came out dressed from head to toe in Rams gear. They were rewarded with tickets to the Monday Night Football game in Seattle, as well as pregame field passes.

“One of my favorite moments of our trip was giving two soldiers tickets to the Rams vs. Seahawks game during one of our appearances,” Shannon said. “They were so excited to spend some time off base and cheer on the Rams at the Monday Night Football game!”

The next day, the ladies were able to experience shooting training on a gun simulator the way soldiers qualify with the M16. They got some pointers from the professionals before trying it out themselves. “We were able to get a sneak peak of the day in the life of a training soldier, and I can say that it was an eye opener for me,” said Jessica. “While visiting the gun simulation, I actually surprised myself and found that I can actually shoot an M-16. I hit not one, but several targets! I had a great experience.”

After shooting practice, they visited the unit that maintains and repairs the Howitzer gun. They were treated to a demonstration on how to load and aim the cannon-like gun and were then given the chance to try it out themselves.

After the weekend, each member of the Rams organization walked away with a memorable experience. “It is always such an honor to meet the men and women who serve in our military and personally thank them for everything they do, especially during the holidays,” said Shannon. “Visiting Joint Base Lewis-McChord allowed us to meet several military personnel. We were not only able to show our appreciation for them, but we had the chance to really get to know everyone we talked to.”

A Triple Treat of Holiday Cheer at the Colts-Texans Game

During the pre-Christmas Colts Thursday night game against the Texans, entertainment by Colts Cheerleaders present, future, and past was so abundant, it was sort of like Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Christmas Colts Cheerleaders Present? The current squad donning their holiday apparel, of course, from signing autographs during pre-game to cheering on the sidelines to routines to seemingly every Holiday song imaginable. Christmas Colts Cheerleaders Future? The Colts Junior Cheerleaders, with their annual holiday game performance at halftime. Christmas Colts Cheerleaders Past? Why, it was Alison, a former Colts Cheerleader who is so devoted to the Colts, that she married mascot Blue. Alison was back on the sidelines assisting hubby, horsey Blue in routines as a ballerina and as a Santa Blue helper (click here to see some pics of them when Alison was a Colts Cheerleader at the holiday game two years ago).

As the gates opened, Colts Cheerleaders Julia, Anna, Kristine, and Stefanie were the first group signing autographs on their individual cards and the ICC team photo.

Soon, it was time to get to our seats, and after the Colts Cheerleaders’ excellent pre-game routine, mascot Blue hit the field for some holiday levity. Former ICC Alison joined Blue to try to class up his act, decked out in a holiday flair-fest of a tutu for a little ballet. Well, surely Blue will appreciate Alison’s classical contribution…

Ben-Gal’s story destined for book, movie

Catching Up With…Laura Vikmanis
By Lauren Bishop
Dec. 28, 2011


At 43, Cincinnati Ben-Gal Laura Vikmanis is the oldest cheerleader in the NFL. She’s also the only one whose life will soon become the subject of a movie and a book.

Vikmanis of Springboro made national news this year when a video about her on Yahoo.com told the story of how the dietitian and 42-year-old single mother of two teens became the NFL’s oldest cheerleader two years ago.

Hollywood came calling, and by the end of March, she had sold the rights to her life story to New Line. The studio has hired screenwriters Emily Cook and Kathy Greenberg – whose credits include “Gnomeo & Juliet” and “Ratatouille” – to tell the story of show she became the NFL’s oldest cheerleader after the collapse of her marriage.

The film likely is still at least two years away, but Vikmanis’s memoir is due out March 20 from Ballantine Books, a division of Random House. Vikmanis wrote the book, titled “It’s Not About the Pom-Poms: How a 40-Year-Old Mom Became the NFL’s Oldest Cheerleader and Found Hope, Joy, and Inspiration Along the Way” with Brooklyn-based author Amy Sohn.

Sohn’s books include the novels “Run Catch Kiss” and “Prospect Park West” and a companion guide to HBO’s “Sex and the City” titled “Sex and the City: Kiss and Tell.”

“I met her last March and we just clicked instantly,” Vikmanis said of Sohn. “There’s a lot of fun and interesting insight into the NFL cheerleading world.”

The book also delves into Vikmanis’s marriage, a topic she said she can’t discuss in detail until the book comes out. But she said it’s highly personal.

“I’ve totally opened myself up,” she said. “I know there’s a lot of judgment out there, and I just hope that people look at the broader picture, which is, if you’re struggling with something, it doesn’t mean you’re going to be struggling the rest of your life. You can turn yourself around.”

The book’s release will coincide with a national book tour that includes dates in Greater Cincinnati.

In the meantime, she’s trying her hand at blogging on SkinnyMom.com under the heading “A Mom to Cheer For” about topics like avoiding weight gain during the holidays and gifts for fitness-minded people. And fans can still see her at Bengals games.

The Bengals’ last home game is Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. And after that, she said, “I’m definitely trying again out next year.”

Every Team Should Tebow

So it’s the week between Xmas and New Year’s. There’s nothing going on at work, so I’ve spent a productive morning perusing the pages of Tebowing.com. I came across the photo below and thought to myself “Self, this would be so much more awesome if the Laker Girls were Tebowing too.” I know a few of the Laker Girls. Perhaps I shall ask them if this would be possible. And then I had another thought: You know what would be even better? If it was the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders instead. You know that photo is out there.

Another alum goes bridal

Kortney Yarbrough is getting married. I discovered this over the holiday weekend when I scrolled through my DVR list and came across a couple of forgotten episodes of TLC’s “Brides of Beverly Hills.”

First, I want to make it clear straight away that I do NOT watch this show. I love costumes and fancy dresses, and I will admit to watching every episode (and numerous repeats) of “Say Yes to the Dress.” But “Brides of Beverly Hills” isn’t my cup of tea. I set up a season pass for it, and I watched the first couple of episodes, but couldn’t take anymore after that. The show’s star, Renee Strauss, owner of Renee Strauss for the Bride in Beverly Hills is both two-faced (for talking smack about her clientele behind their backs) and a moron (for doing it on camera), and her friend Kevin Lee (an obvious alum of the Bobby Trendy School of Trying Way Too Hard) makes me cringe. Literally. Every time he says the word “FAB-uh-luss!” my shoulders go up, my back hunches over, and my face gets all scrunchy. He is SUCH a tool. And if this show lasts past this season, I will be very surprised. (Especially due to Renee Strauss’ recent financial issues, but you ain’t heard about that from me.)

Anywho, I was about to delete the show when the episode synopsis caught my eye. “Episode: 12 – Kourtney/Mariflor. A former professional football cheerleader comes in to Renee’s salon with her mom and friends in search of the perfect wedding dress.” I had no idea who this “former cheerleader” might be, so yeah, I sat down and watched it. I took one for the team.

I immediately recognized Kortney. How could I not? She’s a total knockout without even trying. Kortney, a cool chick, by all accounts, is an alum of the Long Beach Breaker Girls, Chivas USA ChivaGirls, San Diego Charger Girls, and AVP Dancers (in that order). I don’t know her directly, but I’ve got one degree of separation through several different people.

Kortney was a ChivaGirl for 2 seasons

Kortney was a Charger Girl for 1 season

Kortney was an AVP Dancer for 1 season

Depending on when the show was taped, Kortney is either engaged, or already married, to a pro surfer. This guy, whose name I can’t find anywhere:

Let me just say that I don’t blame Kortney for being on this awful show. This is the first season. She couldn’t have known. In any case, she found her way someway, somehow, to Renee Strauss’ bridal salon, mother and best friend in tow, and she tried on a few gowns, including the blue St. Pucchi creation in the clip below.

It’s a unique dress. It’s an expensive dress ($17,000!!) And I really hope Kortney didn’t buy it. I really hope she took her hard earned money and spent it somewhere else, but I’ll never know. (To date, I still haven’t made it all the way through an episode of this show.)

In any case, best of luck-slash-congratulations to Kortney and her fiancee. I’m sure either was, or will be, a beautiful bride, no matter what dress she chose.
