Wait, did you hear that Phyllis Lapin from The Office was a St. Louis Cardinals cheerleader back in the 1970s? Yes, that was news in 2011, but Yahoo! entertainment writers brought back that news this week. Did you know Teri Hatcher was a NFL cheerleader? Did you know the L.A. Rams cheerleaders were in an episode of CHiPs where they’re van was pulled over by Ponch & John?

Phyllis from The Office told Slate about her experience:

“I was at the height of my glory, because I loved dancing and wearing the boots and the hot pants, the tied up shirts, looking really hot,” she told Slate. “And I was able to dance, I loved football. My dad used to have season tickets, so I was flirting with the guys on the sidelines as much as I could. The organizations make sure that the cheerleaders and the players have minimal contact, but that’s what you try to do. It was great, in the ’70s.”
