Endgame – The 2019 Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders Final Auditions

Final auditions for the 2019 Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders were held this past Sunday at the Lynwood High School Performing Arts Center.  73 finalists vied for the 32 open spots on the squad and the competition was a very competitive one.  A panel of four judges would review each finalist as they performed a jazz dance routine, a hip hop routine and a high energy technical dance.  At the conclusion of the four hour final audition process, the 32 members of the 2019 Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders were announced.

The Shape of Things To Come: The 2019 Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders Preliminary Auditions

This past Sunday, the Los Angeles Rams held their preliminary auditions for their 2019 cheerleading squad.  As you might expect after a Super Bowl appearance, interest in the Rams is at an all time high and the preliminary auditions attracted over 250 young women and men. 

Last season, the Los Angeles Rams became the first NFL team to select a male, two to be exact, for their dance team.  The Baltimore Ravens and Indianapolis Colts have had co-ed stunt teams for several years, but I believe the Rams were the first team to select a male for their dance team.   The New Orleans Saints also selected a male for their dance team last year, but I believe they held their auditions after the Rams.  

This year, there were several men in attendance at the preliminary auditions and there were two very special individuals with unique qualities that also tried out.  This was in addition to the two hundred talented young women who were among this year’s hopefuls. 

I think you could certainly say that these auditions were the most inclusive in history.  And judging by the caliber of young men and women trying out, these auditions were certainly most auspicious…perhaps an indication of the shape of things to come.

NFL Regular Season Week 15 – The Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders

The Los Angeles Rams were thick in the race with the New Orleans Saints for home field advantage in the NFC and they had a very winnable game against the visiting Philadelphia Eagles, but the Rams played beneath themselves and lost a close one, 30 – 23.  Some speculate that Jared Goff has an undisclosed injury because he has not performed at a high level for the past three weeks, telegraphing passes and missing open receivers.  It didn’t help his cause that recently, the offensive line has played poorly and allowed opposing defenses pressure Goff relentlessly. 

Whatever the issue, the Rams better find some answers because the Chicago Bears are only  game behind them for a first round bye and if the Rams have to play in the Wild Card Round, well anything can happen and most of it is bad for a team that was once favored to win it all.

But let us focus on the positive and take another look at the lovely Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders.  The Rams have posted a super large gallery of images from their game against the Eagles.  Click here to view the 200+ image gallery…and there are some absolutely wonderful images there.

Rams Fire Relief Fundraiser Generates Over $1.1 Million for United Way of Greater Los Angeles’ Disaster Relief Fund

 

Los Angeles, CA (November 16, 2018) — On Wednesday the Fire Relief Fund multi-platform fundraising event, hosted by the United Way of Greater Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Rams, CBS 2 and KCAL 9, raised more than $1,173,905 for United Way’s Southern California Disaster Relief Fund. The Wednesday fundraiser will serve both immediate and critical long-term needs of economically vulnerable neighbors affected by recent fires. While phone lines are closed, funds are continuing to come in as individuals text 2018fires to 41444, log in to unitedwayla.org/2018fires and send in checks.

“The community came together in an unprecedented way Wednesday. From celebrities to event organizers to those who waited on the lines to donate whatever amount they could—many of whom have themselves been impacted by the fires—our community came together as one,” said Elise Buik, President and CEO of United Way of Greater Los Angeles. “At least one donor tripled their pledge by the end of the night, volunteers stayed beyond their shifts and people are still reaching out from around the world to donate. Thanks to the incredible support of all those who have and will continue to join with us, we can help thousands of individuals and families rebuild their lives.”

Los Angeles Rams COO Kevin Demoff joined President and General Manager of CBS 2 and KCAL 9 Steve Mauldin to kick off the fundraiser. Throughout the day, Rams players including Jared Goff, Andrew Whitworth, Aaron Donald, Michael Brockers, Johnny Hekker, Brandin Cooks, Mark Barron and General Manager Les Snead made appearances on-air to offer support to the community.  Additionally, former Rams players Eric Dickerson, Jackie Slater, Vince Ferragamo, Harold Jackson and Greg Bell joined Los Angeles Rams cheerleaders and staff to answer phones.

“It has been inspiring to see our community come together after so much destruction to help our neighbors begin the long process of recovering and rebuilding,” said Kevin Demoff, COO of the Los Angeles Rams. “As our brave first responders continue fighting these fires and protecting our region, we are grateful to the generosity of all who contributed to helping those in greatest need.”

A number of celebrities made appearances and answered phones, including Alyssa Milano, Robin Thicke, Bob Odenkirk, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and Stephnie Weir. Others–including Britney Spears, Stephen Colbert, Mark Hamill, Dr. Phil, Adina Porter, Bob Odenkirk, Vivica A. Fox, Chris Martinez, LA Galaxy player Daniel Steres — voiced their support on Twitter and other social media channels. CBS Los Angeles tweeted a heartfelt video message from James Corden: “The devastation caused by the Woolsey and Hill Fires means we all have an opportunity and a calling to come together and help care for our neighbors. Already so many brave firefighters have risked their lives to stop the fires and so many Southern Californians have opened their hearts and homes to help. But this is going to be a long rebuilding process and we are only just beginning the fight.”

Corporate donors and individuals made pledges to the fund over the phone, on websites, social media and via text. Top pledges include: IBM, $125,000; JP Morgan Chase & Co., $125,000; Edison International, $100,000; Annenberg Foundation, $50,000; Dole Food Company, Inc., $50,000; 21st Century Fox, $25,000; Charlize Theron, $25,000; The Sikand Foundation, $15,000 and Pauley Perrette, $10,000. Anonymous pledges were also given in the amount of $175,000. Another generous pledge of $50,000 by City National Bank was received Thursday after the fundraiser ended.

One group of entertainment professionals came together to donate—Actor Barrett Foa, who appeared on the broadcast, sent a group text to the entire “NCIS: Los Angeles” cast and crew, who immediately responded with a $10,000 pledge.

“Everyone at CBS 2 and KCAL 9 was honored to participate in this fundraiser,” said Steve Mauldin, President and General Manager, CBS 2 and KCAL 9.  “We were deeply moved by how our employees, our partners at the United Way and Los Angeles Rams, and all the volunteers poured their hearts into this relief effort.  And it was gratifying to see our viewers respond the way they did. We are thankful for every donation.”

United Way of Greater Los Angeles extends immense gratitude to CBS 2, KCAL 9 and the Los Angeles Rams for their continued partnership. United Way also thanks the volunteers, organizations, and individuals who provided support at the event. While not an exhaustive list, these include:

NFL Regular Season Week 10 – The Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders

It was a tough week for the Los Angeles Rams organization with all of the tragedies that have happened recently.  For those who may not know, the Rams headquarters are located in Agoura Hills, CA, which is not too far from Thousand Oaks, California and the team practices at California Lutheran University, a short distance away.  So one could expect that they might have been a little distracted against the Seahawks, but the Rams played as well as could be expected under the circumstances.

Jared Goff and Aaron Donald were two Rams who had to evacuate their home this week, but they both were able to focus on the game and played well.  Goff passed for 300 yards and two touchdowns and Donald was a constant presence in the Seahawk backfield, recording 2.5 sacks and 3.5 tackles for loss.  The Seahawks didn’t go down without a fight, but in the end, the Rams prevailed in a close game.  Final score: Rams – 36, Seahawk – 31.

Let’s turn our attention to this week’s Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders images.  The Rams uploaded a large gallery of images, click here to view them.

NFL Regular Season Week 8 – The Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders

It was big game week in Los Angeles.  Anytime you have one of the NFL’s glamour teams come into town to play, it’s a big deal and it was an even bigger deal with Fox making this game, “America’s Game of the Week”.  And then there’s future hall of famer, Aaron Rodgers, a man so gifted that he can almost single-handedly win the game for the Packers. 

This was a highly competitive game between two teams that are favored to make the playoffs.  In the case of the Rams, they are the favorite to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl and came into the game with an unblemished record.  On the other side, the Green Bay Packers were still recovering from the lingering effects of Aaron Rodgers knee injury that he sustained in the first game of the season.  He’s been playing better of late, but for those who have followed his game, we know that he is not the same as he is when he’s healthy and that limits the explosiveness of the Packers on offense.  And it is the Packers offense that makes them special.

The Packers were led by a strong defensive performance that held the Rams scoreless in the first quarter, but the Rams found their way offensively after halftime.  In the end, the game was decided in the final minutes when Greg Zuerlein hit a 34-yard field goal with 2:05 left and Ramik Wilson forced and recovered Ty Montgomery’s fumble on the ensuing kickoff return.  Rams win 29 – 27 to stay unbeaten.

Let’s turn our attention to the Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders, who looked resplendent in their throwback inspired cheerleader uniforms.  Click here to view the Rams game day gallery.

 

NFL Regular Season Week 4 – The Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders

We kick off our coverage of Week 4 of the NFL regular season with another high scoring game, this time a nationally televised Thursday night game between the visiting Minnesota Vikings and the Los Angeles Rams. Considered the favorites to make the Super Bowl for the NFC, the Rams and Vikings were mirror images of each other, teams with strong defenses and dynamic offensives. Well maybe they both teams had strong offenses, but their defenses…weren’t exactly stout as they gave up a combined 1002 net yards and 69 points.

If you liked scoring, this game was for you. Rams QB Jared Goff threw for a career high 465 yards and 5 TDs, connecting on scoring strikes to four different receivers. Vikings signal caller Kirk Cousins was nearly as proficient, finishing with 422 yards and 3 TDs. And as close as this game was, the Rams were a little better. Rams win, 38 – 31.

It was throwback uniform week for the Rams and their the Rams Cheerleaders wore some colorful uniforms to celebrate the occasion. Click here to view a large gallery of images from the game.

NFL Regular Season Week 3 – The Los Angeles Rams Cheerleaders

In Week 3, the Los Angeles Chargers played the Los Angeles Rams in the Battle for L.A. and in this contest, the Rams were victorious.  Both teams have have good offenses and good defenses, but the Rams have a top 4 rated offense and a top 4 rated defense and that was the difference in this match up.  Rams win 35 – 23. 

So let’s take a look at this weeks images from the L.A. Coliseum and click here to view the Rams Cheerleaders game day gallery.
