Last week we broke the story of the Oakland Raiders hiring the NFL's only grandmother cheerleader - Susie Sanchez. Now comes the news that's rocking the Australian news media this morning. The Dallas Cowboys will have the very first Australian NFL cheerleader - Angela Nicotera - on its sideline Aug. 11 when the team faces Denver. Ms. Nicotera had spent the last couple years cheering for an Aussie rugby team. Details - JUMP!
For the last three years of our lives there have been a couple legit reasons to look forward to the last weekend in July. This is the official kickoff to the football season. Teams are in camp. Colleges are welcoming players to campus. And the USC Song Girls invade Lake Tahoe for the annual band retreat. Bloggers who are normally making their Top 5 Nickel Defenses In The Big 12 lists, pause for a moment of appreciation. Those 3 letters. Water. JUMP!
Imagine our surprise this morning as we were going through our regular routine and figured out that the Oakland Raiders will soon debut the NFL's only grandmother cheerleader. And here we thought the big news from the Raiderettes this year would be Tony LaRussa's daughter. Now comes Susie Sanchez. Is NFL fan ready for a grandmother on a sideline shaking her pom poms? We're about to find out. JUMP!
Major props to the Big 12 Conference this year for spicing up media day by including school cheerleaders, according to Star-Telegram reporter Mac Engel. We've been to a few media days in our lifetime and they're giant sausage fests where TV guys walk around looking for mirrors. Finally, a little something for the print guys to look at instead of Internet porn while Art Briles mans the mic. Photos - JUMP!
While the NFL meets tomorrow in Atlanta to finalize the new 10-year CBA, there are football cheerleaders in the same city who've already been going through training camp. (Yes, we're desperate for anything football-related so you're getting this.) The Falcons cheerleaders have been team building with camp activities like modeling this new Ford. Did you realize you can hire ATL cheerleaders for your birthday party? True. Details - JUMP!
Dylan Smith is only 19 but he has already etched out his spot in Kentucky sports lore as the male cheerleader who fell 44-feet to a certain death but saved his life with a variety of cheerleading moves. Just days after a Texas Rangers fan fell from the stands and eventually died, Smith was in Rhode Island teaching gymnastics when his ordeal began. This one reads like a Jackie Chan flipping-through-the-air and to safety flick. Details of Dylan's great escape - JUMP!
Happy Canada Day, everyone! To celebrate, we’ve put together a ton of CFL cheerleaders for your viewing pleasure. With the NFL not even close to returning later this month, us American football freaks are left with tonight's doubleheader featuring Winnipeg at Hamilton followed by Toronto at Calgary. If you have CBC on your cable box, consider yourself lucky. For the rest of us we'll just be over here ogling the cheerleaders. JUMP!
There was some debate within the Busted Coverage office as to if this video was old or if Chinese cheerleader dude was making his American debut today. BC reader, Brian emailed it in and says, "Love the site. Thought this was pretty funny." Funny? When is the last time you saw a male cheerleader wearing the female uniform with such vigor and excitement? Off the top of our foggy heads, never. Watch as Zhou Pu's (a name we've given him) dominates the floor and earns his new worldwide fame. Video - JUMP!
It was with a heavy heart that we digested the news this week that 10 years of war with scumbag terrorists is coming to an end. Most of you were busy watching a baseball game while Obama was telling the nation that he'll be drawing down the troop levels in Iraq and Afghanistan. The world of sport has been instrumental in making troops feel like they haven't been forgotten. For years, cheerleaders have been making trips and today seemed like the perfect time for "Cheerleaders & Guns." A look back at what was America's finest arming America's finest. Brings a tear to our eye. JUMP!
PR guy Brad emailed us this week with this message. "I hope you are well! I just wanted to let you know that six Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders will be featured on Friday night’s episode of The Singing Bee, CMT’s highest rated original series. The cheerleaders will compete in this karaoke-style game show to win $10,000 for their chosen charity." Who cares about the charity? Cheerleaders playing Mad Libs karaoke? We're all in. Play along at home! JUMP!
They're cheerleaders. Enough of this "NBA Dancer" garbage. If you put pom-poms in a chick's hand & have them go nuts after a made basket, they're cheerleaders. Clear? Now, let's tell you how the Dallas Mavericks cheerleaders have to be one of the most secretive units in all of sports. We've literally spent hundreds of man hours trying to show you something - maybe a bikini - other than the normal cheerleader uniform pics. In the end, a tipster came knocking. Casie! Boat time! JUMP!
So, yeah, we've been hammering this Colts cheerleader beat to death over the last two days. Yesterday it was a profile of the crazy, alcohol drinking rookie Kaley who'll be making her NFL debut if the lockout ever ends. Today we happened upon outtakes from last year's Colts' bikini calendar shoot and have determined that photographing chicks along the Ohio River has earned the team honors in the "All-Time Worst NFL Cheerleader Calendar Shoot Locale," contest. Yes, that bikini chick is holding a piece of driftwood. PHOTOS! JUMP!
We've had it with all these NFL cheerleaders who bore us to death with their fancy careers, charity work and anti-drinking stance. Thankfully the Indianapolis Colts cheerleading team awarded a roster spot to rookie Kaley Collier. Tipster Jeff writes, "Fellas, you have to see this chick I know who made the Colts cheerleading team. I'm in love." Jeff will need to fight us to virtually marry this Indiana native. And from what we can tell she didn't even go to college! Love it! PHOTOS - JUMP!
While there are reports of the Atlanta Falcons cutting the pay of front office staffers back home in Georgia, the Falcons cheerleader squad is in Bermuda busily compiling a photo dossier that'll serve as the official 11-'12 swimsuit calendar. Like we care if some secretary had Arthur Blank cut her pay by 15%. Deal with it, losers. We have cheerleaders in bikinis to look at and from what we can see from the first two days this should be an interesting calendar. Chain link fence outside a gun range is a nice touch. See what's doing with this up-to-the-minute compilation gallery. JUMP!
There are ex-NFL cheerleaders committing crimes and then there is the case of ex-Falcons pom-pom shaker Kori Lanard getting popped this week in one of the stranger busts in our foggy memory. This chick is being accused of helping her boyfriend and 21-year-old sister run a chop shop operation. Um, can't say we've ever seen a cheerleader fall off the deep end like Kori. Full details of Ms. Lanard's bust - JUMP!
It's officially NFL cheerleader bikini calendar season! That's right, no stinkin' lockout can stop NFL teams from sending their ladies to exotic locales to shoot a calendar that'll serve as a remembrance if the 2011 season is lost to a lockout. That's why this year's bikini calendar season is critical. All two-pieces are on deck. From our count the New England Patriots will have at least 24 cheerleader members and staff in Aruba this week to pound out a killer calendar. (Still efforting to figure out if Alexa Flutie is on this trip.) The initial crop of Aruba shots - JUMP!
