Bucs Cheerleaders Alumni

As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in the process of holding their 2012 auditions I thought it would be nice to have an Alumnus album for the TBBC members who gave their sweat and cheers in previous seasons. Here’s a start highlighting some multi-season fan popular young ladies. Bookmark this album as we add to it this off season.

Bucs Cheerleaders Holiday Outfits

Buccaneer Football was really bad this NFL season– fortunately the TBBC delivered another year of a talented attractive squad who supplied excellent game day entertainment and numerous community initiatives for the fan base. Last week’s Dallas game, shown on the NFL Network, showcased the Buccaneer Cheerleaders in their festive holiday outfits. Following is some tidbits from the bios of a few 2nd year veterans:

Lauren Rasys: Lauren is a graduate of The International Academy of Design and Technology and presently works as a Interior designer for a Tampa architectural firm. Lauren has quite an impressive community involvement resume which includes volunteering for Susan G. Komen, Crisis Center of Tampa Bay, Hope Children's Home, Cat Depot, Pearlman Music Program, Boys/Girls Club and the Life of Riley Foundation. Wow. Lauren quotes her Father "Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life":

Sarah Nelson: Sarah is currently working as a Pediatric RN while working on her Master's to be a Family Nurse Practitioner. Sarah is a Gator Girl who danced on the UF Dazzler's Dance Team for 4 years. Sarah's favorite hobbies include kayaking, surfing and snowboarding!!! Sarah's favorite charity is the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Sarah says "standing on the field during the decade anniversary of 9/11 was an amazing experience. The flag that spanned the entire field was absolutely breathe-taking followed by the fly over just gave me chills."

Kara is proud of her Father and the military for their service and thanks them for everything they do for the country.:

Tampa Bay Lightning Girls in Their Winter White Holiday Outfits

I was at Thursday’s (12/15) Lightning overtime win versus their Stanley Cup foes, the Calgary Flames. In between play I seized the opportunity to snap off a few photos of the Lightning Girls. Hopefully, after the Bucs season, we can obtain access to re-visit the Tampa Times Forum (new name) for a full photo-shoot of these energetic young ladies as they hop all over the arena mingling with the fans. Check back with us.
