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.

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:

Jaguars Beat Titans On Thursday Night Football

We enjoyed a very nice visit to Jacksonville to witness the Jaguars dismantling of the Tennessee Titans 20-7 on Thursday Night Football.

TIAA Bank Field was overwhelmed with male and female mustaches as replacement quarterback, Gardner Minshew, has taken over the city. Stories of Minshew’s life adventures has him elevated to the newest cult figure in Florida. He set all sorts of passing records at Washington State University and based upon his first three pro games he definitely seems NFL ready.

The ROAR, the Jacksonville Jaguar’s Cheerleaders, are an integral part of the Jags home game entertainment package. They visit with fans pregame on the plaza, posting for photos and signing autographs. On the field they were certainly ready to perform, not missing a dance step in constant “on again off again” rain. The ROAR are under the direction of Christy Stechman Zynda, Director of Branded Entertainment for the Jaguars. We thank her for allowing Ultimate Cheerleaders to photograph her talented and beautiful ladies.

Emily was honored as the cheerleader of the game. This is her fifth season as a member of the ROAR, and she is a second year captain. Enjoy the photos of all the ladies in their striking iconic teal outfits.

Ravens At Dolphins, Week Number 1 for NFL

We enjoyed our weekend visit with the 2019 Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders. The game itself, not so much! Really, what can you say when your team loses 59 to 10 on opening day. My conclusion is that the Ravens are not that good and the Dolphins are not that bad as the score may indicate.

The Dolphins are in full rebuilding mode and we need to give them space. The organization is tired of average 8 and 8 seasons, and a different longer term strategy game plan is in process. Good luck to everyone involved, especially the fans. Hang tough.

Miami Dolphins Cheer is among the most highly regarded and recognized cheerleader brands in the world. The diverse team of women are athletic, confident and trendy yet timeless. They are talented dance performers and community advocates. Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders are committed to inspiring and entertaining all fans with an emphasis on empowering young women.

Enjoy our photos of the ladies in their new uniforms. Beautiful outfits.

The Up And Coming Browns Lose To Buccaneers In Tampa

Did I mention that preseason NFL games can be boring? Week 3 always has the regulars playing a full first half but neither starting QB, Baker Mayfield or Jameis Winston, made much of a statistical statement in the Buccaneers 13 to 12 victory on Friday night. The main weakness for Tampa Bay seems to be the offensive line’s inability to pass block! Hopefully that can get fixed by the opening game versus the 49ers on September 8th.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders showed up big time with their iconic athletic uniforms. As is their normal game day routine, the ladies were out on the plaza greeting fans two hours before kickoff. Rain free night.

Tickets remain available for the season opener. Tim McGraw will be performing a pregame concert.

Preseason Week #2–Buccaneers Take Down Visiting Dolphins, 16 to 14

On a rainy Friday night in Tampa the Buccaneers beat their Florida neighbors 16-14. The 48-yard winning points came from 5th round draft choice, rookie kicker Matt Gay, with only seconds to go in the game.

The Buccaneers say they are reloading under Bruce Arians. The Dolphins admit to a rebuilding year. Preseason is preseason but the next game (3rd week) usually is very telling. We will see but as of now both teams are predicted to have sub 500 seasons.

The Buccaneer elite NFL cheerleaders had a good night dancing in the rain. They hosted the Juniors for a well choreographed halftime performance.

The Junior Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleading program is designed specifically to promote self-esteem, commitment, and fun among children ages 6 to 14 years old. This is a community program open and tailored to cheerleaders of all ability levels. The “youngins” participated in three clinics before hitting the field. Hooray to Tara Battiato, Senior Cheerleading Manager, and her team for a nice showcase. Smiles were everywhere. Rain doesn’t faze football cheerleaders.

Bucs coach Bruce Arians on his team longing to face an opponent, “You’re seeing the same offense and defense over and over since the spring. We’re really looking forward to getting to Pittsburgh and seeing something else.” Tampa Bay plays at Pittsburgh on Friday in its preseason opener.

The buccaneers cheerleaders will have to wait for week two home game, versus the Dolphins, to display game action performances.

Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders Photo Shoot On MSC Cruises

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Aug. 1, 2019) Press Release–The Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders, one of the most beloved cheer organizations in the National Football League, have officially wrapped up their 2019 annual photo shoot sailing aboard MSC Cruises’ innovative smart ships, MSC Seaside in the Caribbean and MSC Meraviglia in Northern Europe. More than 13 of the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders participated in this year’s photo shoot, themed “Dance Unites the World,” set to be released in Fall 2019.

This marks the second year that MSC Seaside, MSC Cruises sun-seeking ship sailing year-round from Miami to the Caribbean, hosted the cheerleaders for their annual photo shoot. The ship’s iconic “beach condo” architecture and wealth of outdoor space are what the ship has become known for, ideal for vacationers looking to spend their getaways under the sun. A handful of the cheerleaders took their cruise overseas, traveling to Northern Europe on board the stunning MSC Meraviglia, the ship for all seasons, getting a preview of the ship before she arrives to North America for the first time this October.

On both sailings, the cheer squad enjoyed an enriching on board experience, inspired by MSC Cruises’ European heritage, as well as being immersed in the local culture of the ships’ iconic ports of call. On board, the ladies dined on gourmet, international cuisine including Spanish bites at Hola! Tapas on board MSC Meraviglia, created by two Michelin-starred chef Ramón Freixa; and, a fusion of pan-Asian cuisine on board MSC Seaside’s Asian Market Kitchen, from its pioneer, celebrity chef Roy Yamaguchi.

While in port, the Cheerleaders experienced the Caribbean destinations of Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Cozumel, Mexico; George Town, Cayman Islands; and Nassau, Bahamas. And, in Northern Europe, the cheerleaders visited Kiel, Germany; Copenhagen, Denmark; and cities in Norway, including Helleysylt, Molde Fjord, and Flaam. With this year’s photo shoot theme, “Dance Unites the World,” the images focused on movement and dance, with the backdrop of scenic locations within each city. In addition to the photos, the cheerleaders placed a priority on reaching out to the locals, hosting cross-cultural dance classes and partaking in a traditional lunch reflective of the local culture.

A few highlights of the cheerleaders’ in-port experiences include:

  • Ocho Rios, Jamaica: The cheerleaders hosted a cross-cultural dance class with Too Kool Dance Crew . Then, the team headed to Dunn’s River Falls to capture photos of the cheerleaders at the iconic locale. The ladies finished the day with a meal of traditional Jamaican jerk.
  • Cozumel, Mexico: The team began the day at a local school, Escuela Secundaria General “Carlos Monsivais,” for a dance lesson with the students. Then completed their photo shoot at the Mayan Ruins before enjoying a seafood lunch at a Cozumel staple with beautiful ocean views.
  • George Town, Cayman Islands: The Miami Dolphins cheerleaders hosted a dance clinic with Dreamchasers, a local dance troupe, at the Harquail Theatre. The team took photos at the Cayman Turtle Centre, a local conservation center and enjoyed lunch.
  • Copenhagen, Denmark: The squad hosted a clinic with Global Kidz and visited the iconic sites of Rosenborg Castle and Nyhayn Harbor.
  • Kiel, Germany: The cheerleaders enjoyed a dance clinic with Ballet-in-Kiel and Kiel Baltic Hurricanes Cheerleaders as well as captured images throughout the week of the signature locale.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Training Camp

The Buccaneers fans are glowing with optimism over possibly turning the corner this NFL season due to the hiring Bruce Arians. The conventional belief is that offensive minded Arians with his Kangol Cap is the man to elevate quarterback Jameis Winston into the upper tier of NFL’s quarterbacks. The thinking is that the success that the Cardinals enjoyed under Arians will surfaced here in Tampa.
 
In the meantime, Buccaneer Senior Cheerleader Manager, Tara Battiato, has fielded another experienced, talented and beautiful squad for 2019. Enjoy the photos and album.
