Tigers rookies dress as Cowboys cheerleaders
Fox Sports Southwest
September 27, 2012

If the Detroit Tigers fail to make the playoffs, at least two of their rookies might be able to find work in Dallas when the season is over.

On Thursday, as the Tigers headed to Minnesota for their final road trip of the season, the team’s rookies had to go through a common baseball tradition of dressing up for their final flight.

They had to dress up as Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders.

And while this tradition has been around for some time, the ugly truth of it is just now starting to become common knowledge . . . thanks to Twitter.

Unfortunately for Tiger rookies Avisail Garcia and Brayan Villarreal, the world now knows what they would look like if they were members of America’s Sweethearts.

Alouettes Cheerleaders offer more than crowd entertainment

By Andrew Soong
The Suburban Newspaper
September 26th, 2012

The Montreal Alouettes Cheerleaders are not just a few pretty faces shaking pompoms on the football field’s sidelines.

“We are the link between the stands and the football field,” said Als’ Cheerleaders’ Coordinator Annie Larouche.
“We are also the ambassadors for the team and represent the team when the players can’t.”

The 32 members of the Alouettes cheerleaders are chosen from as many as 200 applicants annually from around Montreal drawn from various professional backgrounds contrary to pop culture. Returning cheerleaders are also subject to try-outs as well keeping the team sharp with the skills for on and off the football field.

According to Larouche cheerleaders must be “dedicated between February to November with solid dancing skills and energetic personality.”

“I have been dancing since I was three-years-old and this is challenging with dancing,” said four year veteran Als cheerleader Marjorie who is also a mechanical engineer. “The kids are always happy to see you and you get to interact with fans.”

Practices are mandatory over the course of their season with the Als and can go late into the evenings as the squad practices and perfects their routines. All CFL cheerleading teams are showcased at each Grey Cup even if their team does not travel to the final. According to Larouche “everybody wants to be part of the team including practice.”

“I danced with the team until one-week before I gave birth and we have another member who still helps out even though she’s pregnant,” said Larouche about the commitment of members of the team. “It may not be cute, but we still dance.”

In addition to their practices and participation at games the cheerleaders interact with the community at large. Members of the cheerleaders often take part in the outreach programs offered by the Als’ organization including visiting schools with the “Back to School with CN and the Montreal Alouettes.” According to Marjorie “it’s always nice to make at least one little kid happy.”
