During the San Diego Chargers’ playoff victory a few weeks back, ABC cut to a shot of their cheerleaders at every opportunity. Good move, ABC. When the Dallas Cowboys play, FOX makes sure to get their overrated yet still fetching Cowgirls on camera whenever a player so much as downs a punt. The Philadelphia Eagle‘s home for wayward strippers and Tennessee‘s obviously silicone enhanced squads also enjoy plenty of air time whenever their teams play.
That’s why I have a question. The Arizona Cardinals have hosted not one but two home playoff games this year. This means their cheerleaders had two entire games to be featured on television. Yet, I cannot recall a single shot of these ladies during either game. How can this be?
Unlike Indianapolis or New England, I have to assume some decent-looking girls can be found wandering the desert. After all, any city with a mix of ethnicities usually produces some fine looking women. Look at Pittsburgh girls. The Polish/Italian/German heritage is usually good for buxom figures and junk in the trunk.
Anyway, in my quest to solve the Cardinal Cheerleaders Conundrum, I bravely decided to visit the team website and look through dozens of dozens of cheerleader photos. What I don’t do for you guys.
Anyway, after scrolling through the first folder, I think I figured out what their, um, shortcoming was. Take a look:
See the problem? No? Well, here’s a couple more of Arizona’s finest. See if you can spot it now:
No? Okay, one more set from this past December. I think it’s pretty obvious where the Cardinals Cheerleaders don’t STACK up to other squads.
Evidently, the push-up bra hasn’t reached Phoenix yet. I’m pretty sure Kleenex has, though, so there’s really no excuse for their appearance. I understand they have to jump, dance, and bounce around to get the apathetic Cardinal fans interested in the game but they need to put a little more jiggle in their milkshake.
Of course, it also doesn’t help their cause to have former Saturday Night Live cast member Cheri Oteri on the squad. She’s a funny comedienne and was great in the cheerleader skits with Will Farrell but she doesn’t belong out on the field.
