Call Me Maybe – Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders vs US Military

Okay, some of you may remember several years ago the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders did a cover of Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe music video.  Well, I just stumbled upon this gem on YouTube (Yes, I know I’m about 8 years late on this one) and if you never saw it nor the original MDC cover, I think you might like it.

A  little beefcake for our female readers.

Post a comment below and let us know which version you liked better.  The MDC or the US Military.

And here’s some more Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders video goodness:

CMT’s Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Every Single DCC Uniform Fitting Video

Like most of you, I am a big fan of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.  Every year, I watch CMT’s Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team series and, by far, my favorite segment is the uniform fittings.  The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders have the most iconic uniforms in all of professional cheerleading and to see the excitement of those women who have made it to training camp and are wearing the uniform for the first time is priceless.

To see more of CMT’s video series on the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team, click here.

If there is any phrase that exemplifies our American culture, it’s the iconic jingle, “Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet, they go together in the good ol’ USA.”   If I may editorialize, I would add the “Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders” to that phrase.  The DCC are as about “American” as any other icon I can think about.

And we should say thank you to Kelli McGonagill Finglass, the Director of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, for shaping the iconic squad to what they are today.

How to Nail Your Pro Cheer Audition Video Submission Part lll – The “Pre-Work”

Editor’s note: The 2020 audition season is coming soon and with the advent of virtual auditions, it’s a new challenge.  Sideline Prep a longtime sponsor of this blog, has a few tips for aspiring professional cheerleaders and dancers.


What is the most commonly forgotten, yet one of the most important parts of the audition process?

You guessed it!

Your “Pre-Work”! Well, you probably said resume or cover letter or headshot, but those all fit under this category! HEHE!

This is your time to show off BEFORE even stepping foot into the audition room (or in the situation we are in now, before you submit your video!) This section of the audition needs to be polished and prepared for excellence, yet for some reason, people don’t take this part as seriously as it should be taken. So we want to help you out!

We are continuing our four part series “How to Nail Your Pro Cheer Audition Video Submission” with video #3 The “Pre-Work”!

In this video, I share 10 things you should do and know when preparing your Pre-Work. Everything from what your resume should include to how you can take the team’s mission statement and showcase how you are a great fit for their team. I go through what you should NOT include in your resume or cover letter and some things to watch out for.

If you want more information on how you can stand out in your pre-work, email us at info@sidelineprep.com to sign up for our Sideline Application training which is over an hour long and includes tons of resources you can use to turn in that eye popping resume!

But since we want to see all of you make your dream team, we want to give you not just 1 but 2 sample resumes AND 1 sample cover letter for FREE! You’re welcome! All you have to do is click the links below to get those resources!

We would love to help you in any way we can so…

If you need editing, we’ve got you.
