Buccaneers Corral Colts In 38 to 35 Shootout

Jameis Winston came back from an injured throwing hand and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, behind Winston’s career-high 456 passing yards and 5 total touchdowns, came back from two double-digit deficits to beat the Indianapolis Colts Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.

Most teams that have quarterback controversy have two individual players to choose from. Not the Buccaneers, they have an Dr. Jekyll – Mr. Hyde player! Is Winston the five touchdown man or the 4 turnover QB? It’s simply mystifying that his NFL playing career is so inconsistent. The Bucs fell behind because of Winston but came back because of Winston!

Bottom line is a win is a win, three in a row. On to Detroit next weekend. Go Bucs!

No mystery regarding the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders. They are talented, beautiful and photogenic. They had the Junior Cheers in for a halftime performance. Enjoy our photo album.

The ROAR Of The Jaguars, “Salute To Service” Game

The Jacksonville Jaguars honored our military service personnel, past and present, at Sunday’s contest versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Performing the Anthem was a vocal quartet from the U. S. Air Force Singing Sergeants. Interpreting the National Anthem for the hearing impaired was ROAR Cheerleader Brooke.
.
At halftime, a large ceremony involving over 250 recruits from all branches took place.The Oath of Enlistment was conducted by Brigadier General Vincent Buggs. The General has three combat deployments to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
.
The Bucs defeated the Jags 28-11 in a game not quite as close as the score would indicate. Nick Foles had a bad first half and was replaced by Gardner Minshew II after intermission. The sparks Minshew brought were quickly diminished with a goal line interception by the Buccaneer secondary. Quarterback controversy is in full discussion among the disappointed fan base. Rough stretch right now! 
.
Everyone is on the same love page when it comes to the talented and beautiful ROAR cheerleaders. No controversy here, especially for Meredith who was selected by her peers as Cheerleader of the Game.

The Miami Dolphins, Salute To Service Game

The Miami Dolphins have military introductions at all home games. This past Sunday was special however as the game versus the Bills was designated the NFL’s Salute To Service day. Embodying the Mission Statement to honor, empower and connect with the nation’s service members, veterans and their families, the Dolphins family continue to show their support and appreciation for those who are serving or have served the country.
.
Honored guests included 100 active duty military and 100 retired military from the community. After their military tailgate, they held flags during the national anthem (performed by the Singing Sergeants from the Air Force) and flyover (85th Fighter Squadron).
.
The Dolphins everyday hero salute went to Retired Staff Sgt.Thomas A. Metto who served as Infantry Platoon Commander in Vietnam.
.
The game was a home disappointment as the Bills kept the Fins at bay all day. Final score was 37-20 Buffalo. The weak pass rush did the Dolphins in, too much time allowing the Bills receivers to get open. The main Miami highlight was Jakeem Grant’s 4th career touchdown return. He’s a play-maker, 101 yard kickoff return.
.
The Dolphin’s cheerleaders were splendid as always. Cloudy day with a great temperature for all day dancing! We’ll let the photo album highlight their talents and beauty. Someday we need to do a Q&A with the cheers who jumped with U.S. Army’s Golden Knights! Yes they did! The MDC website is HERE

The Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders Will Present UNIR, A Dance Showcase

Unir–A Spanish word to unite, bind, join, combine, etc. As in “ties that bind multiple cultures”. We asked cheerleaders Katie and Shayla to tell us about UNIR. Note: The Miami Dolphins, as an organization, is strongly committed to community initiatives.

1)  Katie and Shayla, we always start our Ultimate Cheerleader chats with you introducing yourself in detail to our readers. 

  • SHAYLA: Hi everybody! My name is Shayla and this is my 2nd season as a Miami Dolphins Cheerleader and my first season as a co-captain. In 2018, I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in dance from New World School of the Arts. Recently, I’ve began my journey to getting a second degree; a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and plan to graduate in 2022 to then continue my schooling in hopes of becoming a Nurse Practitioner and beginning my career in the medical field. 
  • KATIE: I started dancing when I was four years old! My parents enrolled me in the dance studio as a way to make friends. I went to New World School of the Arts for my freshman and sophomore year of high school and then finished through an online schooling service. At 16 I traveled back and forth to upstate New York to dance with a modern dance company. I attended NYU and received my BFA in Dance in 2016. I’ve studied ballet, modern, jazz, contemporary, lyrical, flamenco, pointe and partnering. In addition to dance, I also minored in nutrition and after graduating, I received my certification in Fitness Nutrition and as a Personal Trainer through NASM. I currently work at Orangetheory fitness as a coach!

 

2) What kind of show is UNIR? Entire squad involved?

  • SHAYLA: UNIR is a dance showcase that will include our entire squad showing our expertise in lots of different styles of dance, from ballet to our well known cheer dance style that we perform on game days. 
  • KATIE: UNIR will be exactly what it means. We plan on further uniting and bringing our community together, not only as an NFL Cheerleading squad, but as a whole. Our team represents diversity, humility and strength in that, so we aim to showcase those qualities with some amazing and talented guests who will be performing with us.

 

3) How exciting will this stage opportunity be?

  • SHAYLA: It’s been a while since I’ve truly performed in a dance showcase in a beautiful theater like the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and I must say I’m elated. I’ve always loved the magical feeling of being on the stage in front of a massive audience, with lights beaming on you from all sides. It’s truly a feeling that you will never forget. 

 

4) What is the prep work like for UNIR?

  • SHAYLA: Preparing for UNIR is not an easy task. It takes a lot of long hours of learning the choreography, to then work to make the vision of each piece a reality. Nonetheless, it’s an extremely fun process. Being surrounded by your best friends and all being able to do what you love is honestly the best feeling. 
  • KATIE: We’ll begin rehearsals the first week of December! Usually we take a break from consistent practice throughout the off season but not this year — we’ll be using that time to prep for our show!

 

5)  What is it like to dance along all these different styles, influences?

  • SHAYLA: It’s incredibly exciting! We get to be immersed in a style that we may have trained in before or may be exposed to a style we’ve never even heard of. But all in all, we get to tap into a different side of ourselves in order to portray that style to the best of our abilities.
  • KATIE: I’m really interested to see how jumping back into technical dance styles is going to feel physically for me. But I’m very excited to get back into some of my favorite styles that I haven’t practiced since college.

 

6)  How do you feel about the change from the fashion show to this event?

  • SHAYLA: Of course we all enjoyed the glitz and glam that we were able to be a part of in the fashion show, and so it will be missed. But I’m also very excited to break bounds and initiate the important conversations that need to be discussed in this world by being a part of this new tradition that we’re creating, entitled UNIR. 
  • KATIEI personally feel that UNIR will be more significant in making a difference. I’m happy we’re changing it up this season and aiming for a performance level and venue that’s even more incredible than our fashion shows in past seasons. We’ve been developing our image as NFL cheerleaders and I think this show will represent exactly what that image is. We’re very lucky to have an organization that wants to showcase our talents and celebrate them in order to bring our community together. 

Thank you Shayla and Katie. We are buying our tickets now. See HERE.

Buccaneers Get Win Over Cardinals On Homecoming Weekend

It’s been seven Sundays since the the Buccaneers last played at home. The fans needed a victory and the Bucs came though with an exciting back and forth scoring game with the Cardinals, 30 to 27 final. Overall number one draft choice Kyler Murray ran the Cardinals and his mobility certainly presented challenges. The Bucs used the strategy of just match him and then score last. It worked! Embattled cornerback Jamel Dean made the big interception that allowed the Bucs offense to drive the length of the field for the winning touchdown. Go Bucs!!!
.
A very busy day at Raymond James Stadium yesterday. The Buccaneers celebrated the “Crucial Catch” cancer cure initiative of the NFL. The Junior Cheers performed at halftime with the Buccaneer Cheerleaders all dressed out in Pink. On this Veterans Day weekend many military members were also acknowledged and thanked.
.
As is custom, many of the cheerleaders were out on the plaza pregame greeting and posing with fans young and old alike.
.
Next home contest is November 17th versus the Saints, the annual Salute to Service game. Tickets are available.

Miami Dolphins Top New York Jets For First Win Of Season

The Miami Dolphins celebrated their NFL Fantennial Game weekend with multiple events culminating in a thrilling victory over their AFC East main rival, the New York Jets.The Dolphins are winless no more, final score 26-18. Hopefully now the word “tanking” will disappear from the local news media. Congratulations out to first year coach Brian Flores in besting prior year coach Adam Gase. Coach Flores was emotional after game “we didn’t get off to the best start this season, a lot of adversity but these guys knew how to deal with it and have played well recently”. The rivalry will continue!
.
Game day is always very active at Hard Rock Stadium. The Dolphins did their military “everyday hero salute” to Command Sergeant Major, David S. Davenport Sr. (retired). With multiple deployments to Bosnia, Kosovo, Haiti and Irag the Major also served as sergeant major of the United States Army Training and Doctrine command. The fly over after the anthem was completed by the 482nd Fighter Wing of Homestead Air Reserve Base. Never gets old, chilling!
.
Every NFL cheering squad will occasionally step outside the box with something unique. The Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders live outside the box. Innovation is their middle name. This year the ladies will be performing at the Broward County For The Performing Arts with UNIR, a show celebrating the power of dance! Tickets are now on sale for the February 20th show. Can a call from Broadway be far off? Link for more information is on the website HERE. 
.
Our thanks out to Ariann Denison, Manager, and Natalie Chernow, Coach and Choreographer, for letting Ultimate Cheerleaders spend a “winsome” Sunday with such a talented group of young professionals.

Jaguars Ground Jets In Jacksonville

A very well played game by the Jacksonville Jaguars results in a convincing win over the New York Jets 29 to 15.
.
Behind the play of quarterback Gardner Minshew II and several defensive takeaways the Jags were able to ground the Jets down with scores in the 4th quarter. Minshew used his magical skills to evade strong pass rush pressure on two of his touchdown passes. The defense ended up with eight sacks and three interceptions.
.
The theme of the day was “Crucial Catch, Intercept Cancer”. The ROAR came out wearing tee shirts honoring cancer survivors but the rain forced a uniform change in the second quarter. As usual, the ladies were also out pregame greeting fans on the Entertainment Zone Plaza. Interactive features included ROAR and Alumni autographs, face painters, kids zone, prize giveaways, etc, etc.. A fun place that is open three hours before kickoff.
.
Nijah was selected by her teammates as cheerleader of the game. This is her fourth season as a member of the ROAR, and she is a Licensed Practical Nurse.
.
The Jaguars and the ROAR are off to London this week to play the Texans. 9:30am east coast kickoff time.
.
Enjoy the game album of the ROAR.

Lady Anglers Of The Jacksonville ROAR

I find the time management skills amazing for Jacksonville Jaguars ROAR cheerleaders, Allison and Amy. NFL cheerleading requires a very structured time commitment during football season. Practices, games, London trip, community visits, etc. Add in full time work occupation hours! How then are days found to be an accomplished Lady Angler?
.
Fifth year ROAR cheerleaders, Allison and Amy, seem to be able to accomplish it with out any loss of beauty sleep. Amy is a Hospital Coordinator at Mayo Clinic, and Allison does extensive modeling.
.
Amy graduated from  the University of North Florida with a degree in Healthcare Business Administration. “I grew up cheerleading in Jacksonville, so being a ROAR cheerleader has always been a dream of mine. I love being on the water, whether it’s fishing or just cruising on the boat.”
.
Allison first appeared in our pages as an arena football cheerleader for the Jacksonville Sharks. She grew up as a Jaguar fan and is “invested 100% in this team. Even before I cheered I loved going to the Jags games.”
.
A peek of the instagram accounts for these beautiful ladies shows they are very comfortable donning their high seas outfits and traversing the east coast of Florida waters. Add in the Bahamas for fishing excursions and tournaments. Your ideal Babes!
.
On the water both ladies are sponsored by Palagic Gear.

Jacksonville Jaguars Celebrate 25th Anniversary With Homecoming Weekend

Went up to Jacksonville to cover the Saints versus Jags. Unfortunately for the home team the Saints marched out of town with a close 13 to 6 win.

This year the Jaguars are playing in their 25th season in the NFL. This homecoming weekend was also one part of Jaguars NFL 100 Fantennial celebration. The Jags welcomed home over 80 members of the Jaguars Legends community to celebrate. About 175 alumni cheerleaders also attended.

Special recognition of the 1995 inaugural season team was honored during pregame ceremonies.  The ROAR alumni gave a very well synchronized dance performance which was then followed by the Air Force fly over. Never gets old saluting that!

At halftime, the Jags celebrated 25 years of Jaguar legends with a special introduction of the Jaguars All-25 as voted on by the local media. The players were escorted on the field through a Teal tunnel of ROAR alumni.

Between multiple activities we chatted with Christy Stechman Zynda, Director of Branded Entertainment, who said ” this is my 22nd season with the team, and to be able to see cheerleaders I cheered with and those I have directed was wonderful! There are so many special memories. It was so nice to get everyone together to celebrate this exciting milestone for our team!”

The Jaguars are a very high class organization, the wins will come.

Enjoy the photos.

Miami Dolphins Visit To Alex’s Place

MIAMI – Miami Dolphins players Doug Middleton and Christian Wilkins, cheerleaders  Paige, Emily and T.D. visited alex’s place at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center to distribute gifts and brighten the spirits of young cancer fighters and their families on Tuesday, Oct. 8. 

“You come here always trying to brighten someone’s day and bring good energy to them. But you always leave with them cheering you up and them bringing you that energy because just knowing what they are going through and how they can still have such a big smile on their face is pretty awesome to see,” Wilkins said. “What they are going through gives me extra motivation. It puts it all into perspective. What I am doing is nothing compared to what they are going through as far as me going out there on the field every day because they are literally fighting for their lives. I’m playing for them.”

“It reminds me of when I was visiting my father at Sylvester when he was being treated for cancer. To see the people that came in to bring a smile to his face just lit me up and to be that part of it in somebody else’s journey — there is nowhere else I would rather be,” Dolphins Cheerleader Paige said.

The children and their families had a chance to interact with the team, get autographs and take photos. The children also received gift bags from AutoNation, a supporter of the DCC, in celebration of the automotive retailer’s DRV PNK Initiative.

“I think it’s a really good thing that they are doing that so the patients can feel better not just when they need transfusions but also feel happy when they come here. It makes it make you want to come here,” alex’s place patient Sophia Treadwell said.

“A visit like this gives their lives a little normalcy. It’s a very welcome distraction to the real reason they’re in clinic today, needle pokes and strong medication, but it also brings joy and smiles getting to meet up close and personal star athletes, professional cheerleaders and the team mascot, something they might otherwise never be able to do. It’s their moment to be special,” alex’s place Child Life Specialist Leslie Hutchins, MS, said.

This visit is in advance to the Dolphins’ Crucial Catch game on Oct. 13 against the Washington Redskins presented by Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, part of UHealth, the University of Miami Health System. At this game, the team will celebrate and honor on-field cancer fighters and survivors from Sylvester and researchers who have received funds from the annual Dolphins Cancer Challenge (DCC) with a halftime presentation.

The Dolphins Cancer Challenge (DCC) was founded in 2010 by the Miami Dolphins organization as the signature initiative of the Foundation’s health impact area. The DCC’s purpose is to improve people’s lives through financial support for innovative cancer research at Sylvester, South Florida’s only NCI-designated Cancer Center. With this recent recognition from the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Sylvester is now among the top cancer centers in the United States and joins a highly select group as one of only two NCI-designated cancer centers in the state of Florida, and one of just 71 across the nation. Since its inception, the DCC has raised more than $32.5 million, donating 100 percent of participant-raised funds to Sylvester.

These initiatives align with the Miami Dolphins Foundation’s commitment towards leveling the playing field through the power of teamwork to inspire a healthier, more educated and united South Florida Community.

Buccaneers Give Game Victory To Visiting Giants

Wide right!!!! The Tampa Bay Buccaneers snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory. Gift wrapped the game to the Giants by missing two extra point kicks and the final field goal attempt. Bucs drove to the 9 yard line for the expected final play. Rookie kicker Matt Gay in-explicitly pushed the potential winner right of the goal posts. All the air of Buccaneer fans left the stadium.  Final score: Giants 32 Bucs 31.
.
Good spectator game. Rookie Daniel Jones replaced Eli Manning for his first NFL start and battled Jameis Winston all afternoon. Story of two halfs, Bucs dominated the first 2 quarters, Giants won the 3rd and 4th.
.
Ronde Barber and family were in the house to accept his entry into the Buccaneers Ring of Honor. Very nice halftime presentation.
.
We tracked down the cheerleaders pregame on the plaza and also caught their end-zone performances during the game. Enjoy the photos:
