Just change the name from "SI" to "CI" ("Cheerleader Illustrated" ...

Jelous?

You bet I am!

(I am struggling to get to a game or two these days ... a cheerleader gallery by SI staff is really something!)

Mahalo!

A while back I had some of my favorite cheerleading shots on my member page. I got positive responses, except for this one. I wanted to reply, but the e-mail address is invalid. Then I thought answering might just be pointless.

no offense man, but as a student I
want to ask you a quick question...
Are you dry now after posting all
those cheer photos. i bet you wet
your pants in shooting those
photos and posting them. now tell
us, what's the visual value of
these photos, except for the fact
that they helped you fantacize
about what u don't have at home

->> Well, I for one am shocked by such blatant sexism.

So shocked, in fact, that I decided to not just talk about it, but actually DO my part for gender equity. Yep, I volunteered myself as a male cheerleader for any womens' league that would have me.

Oh sure, I'd be setting myself up for being leered at by countless female sports fans. Sure, I'd be reducing myself to a sex object for the cheap gratification of ogling strangers. But it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make for a principle, gosh darn it.

So far, all I've gotten is hysterical laughter and a few hang-ups on the phone. But I'm sure my big break will come soon.

The photography itself lacks the artistry of SI, but the subjects are no less breathtaking. If you didnt get enough of SI, feel free to check these out as well:

Hey Randy, I already did mine for the year. Of course the cheerleaders were only about 10 years old, but they were cheerleaders nonetheless.

And the update shows NFL cheerleaders with unflung hair.

So what's up with Dallas cheerleaders flinging their hair?

I've never seen women in public fling their hair around, but then I've never walked around Dallas. Perhaps this is normal there?

Again, what's with the hair?

WHAT DO WE WANT? FLINGING HAIR!

Walter, the first lesson every successful woman learns is the "Giggle and Hair Flip" manuever. It's a very effective tool that is often the pivot point in opening a door or closing a sale! I'm laughing, but NOT kidding! Giggle.
