If this isn't sexy dancing, I don't know what is:

If I were 74 and some college hooch was shakin it in front of me without my paying more than the admission price of a college basketball game I'd be woopin it up and counting my blessings, hoping my teeth didnt fall out in front of everyone in the process.

This guys got his panties in a serious knot over a little public good natured sluttiness, at a team's game that probably sucks, at a 4th tier who gives a rip whether its respectable or not state college.
 
2005-04-10 12:51:48 PM
To best make a judgment, I must have pictures of afformentioned sexy dance team posted in this thread.
 
2005-04-10 12:58:29 PM
So University sluts show their sluttiness? So what? I thought it was pretty damn funny that "grabbing her arm might have caused a bruise" after all the stuff they do in the course of a routine.

"Tarah DiNardo says the dancers have simply been doing what sports officials asked. "They wanted more makeup, more hair and sexier uniforms" to boost ticket sales, she said."

Maybe they meant the basketball team.

I found this one interesting:

Tarah DiNardo says the dancers have simply been doing what sports officials asked. "They wanted more makeup, more hair and sexier uniforms" to boost ticket sales, she said.

"That doesn't strike me as anything we'd want," said Mark Harlan, the university's new associate director of athletics.


It seems to me that the university is trying to have their cake and eat it too.
 
2005-04-10 01:02:40 PM
"They wanted more makeup, more hair and sexier uniforms"

more hair is not always a good thing. especially in New Jersey.

@mathmatrix: And shouting "trash, this is trash" from the stands is classy? As far as I'm concerned, she was provoked. and was justified in confronting that asshole. Old people really need to learn that just because they're nearly dead, that's no excuse to act like a petulent child.

How is this stupid? Ticket sales aren't squat comapared to the money the alumni donate and raise, and many times they like to attend the games. Not to mention the families with young kids that are there to see the older kids play. I have no idea what the dance looked like, but look at the damn lyrics. It's not exactly family entertainment.

[LL Cool J]
LL..
N.O. Joe, hit me baby!

Push it out girl, arch your back
Them 17's is fittin like bubblewrap
Uhh, plus they low on your hips
You there, let me grab
That thing you do keep me brick
50 told you bout the "Magic Stick"
C'mon, lean on me
I'm in love with this scenery
Poke it out
'Pon de river, 'pon de bank baby stroke it out
Sweat for your man
Both hands on your hips for your man
Me and the boys is your biggest fans
Every time we see you we be like DAAAAAAAMN!
Work it girl
Move somethin, hurt me girl - oh!

[Chorus - repeat 2X]
C'mon, c'mon, move somethin
C'mon, c'mon, move somethin
C'mon, c'mon, move somethin
C'mon, c'mon, prove somethin

[LL Cool J]
Such a pimply aura
Way way hotter than I was before-a
She wanna sit courtside next to a baller
Where the paper's longer and cats are taller
Woo! I'm off on my own
Do the math mami, L's on the throne
Now take it to the floor
Do a split if you really hardcore
Man listen here
I'm hot today, ain't concerned with last year
I see your lil' shorty ride shotgun
But I done left stoplights with a hot one
Made her hop out, and move somethin
Jump in my joint, and prove somethin
He-he, I laugh at y'all
Don't worry about the check, already cashed it y'all

[Chorus]

[LL Cool J]
Uhh, pull it to the side
Shake it for daddy, it's time to ride
Make it sweat 'til it slide
Do your thing like it's justified
Tease me a little
It's my turn to take it to the middle
Let me palm that thing
You got the bomb, I disarm that thing
Turn it around girl, I want that thing
You had to know the way you flaunt that thing
Your body's jumpin
Ain't no frontin when you provin somethin
Made eye contact with me
Now bring that thing back to me
You do your thing so naturally
I think I'm in love, actually

[Chorus - 2X]

How ironic that you would use the term petulent to describe the old guy who lost it. To me, the lyrics of that song alone are by definition petulent - I can only imagine what the dance was like. And entertainment program such as this one is described being performed in front of the elderly or youth for that matter is completely rude and disrespectful. While I agree the man's reaction was less that civil, how far can you expect to go with filth in a family environment before someone is going to lose it? Personally, if I was there with my family I would have walked out, demanded a ticket refund and complained. Gimme another 30 or 40 years of dealing with disrespectful punks, and I'd probably jump up and yell "send those whores back to the strip club where they belong!" and then left for the strip club to await their arrival. There's a time and a place for everything.

I find Tarah DiNardo's explanation to be very believable - when I played college ball a couple years ago I was well aware of how the cheerleaders were pressured by school officials to act and dress less modestly. The ticket sales from these games goes to pay for many of the other sports, so they bend many rules to get as much $$$ out of this enterprise as possible.

And, when this old jerk flips out they blame the GIRLS, yeah that sounds fair to me!

He either flunked marketing or majored in lying.

/then flunked that too.

Meh, indeed. Seems like the first hit on a GIS for 'dance'.

/just sayin'
 
2005-04-10 01:20:02 PM
They don't have names for the dance girls, so I can't identify the girl in question, but I'd still let these girls shake it anyway
 
2005-04-10 01:20:39 PM
Wow
Where's the giant wave that wipes life off this planet so we can start again? I'm still looking!

/Yea yea *click* I'm going to hell. Eat babies, punt puppies, shoot priests.

Tara at 17? 4th from left according to article.




The acknowledgement of her turnaround was exactly what 17-year-old Tarah DiNardo needed to motivate herself in school. As a freshman, DiNardo had a 1.5 grade point average and called herself the typical slacker who didn't want to do her homework. She wasn't accepted at school; she felt unhappy, but she realized if she wanted to improve her situation, she would have to change herself.

"I looked around and I saw people who were happy, and I tried to see what they were doing differently," DiNardo said. "It was people who were involved in school activities. I realized that if I wanted to change, those were the kinds of things I needed to be a part of." Fortunately, once she indicated to some of her friends who were active in student government that she wanted to learn how to be more involved, they were happy to help her out.

She turned out to be a quick study, throwing herself into activites such as student government. She became a Link Crew commissioner, successfully tried out for the school's cheerleading squad and was elected homecoming queen.

That's my school! I didn't even know we had a cheerleading squad. Then again, I don't go to any of the games because all our teams suck. I saw one of the basketball players at the gym yesterday, and I wanted to ask him why they keep losing, but seeing as how he's a 6'5 black guy, and I'm barely pushing 5'7, I decided to keep my mouth shut.

"It was vulgar," said Ray Silva, 74, a San Jose businessman and major university booster. "It was like a burlesque, with bumps and grinds. I just came unglued."

I think I will have to see video of this dance to determine exactly how vulgar it was.

This guy should work for the Bush administration. Bold face lying doesn't get any better than that.

your handle fits, you are a moron. What the old fart did could be considered assault. He's just pissed that his cialis wasn't working.

"unglued" ha ha -- old coot forgot the sensation called an "erection" and it scared him. Poor guy.

What other kind of person shouts at someone on stage/court? Even when I was a child, my parents still took me to task for acting like that in public.

To me, the lyrics of that song alone are by definition petulent

Only because you don't seem to understand the definition of "petulent".

[An] entertainment program such as this one is described being performed in front of the elderly or youth for that matter is completely rude and disrespectful.

Yet, the parents of the children in the crowd did nothing about it. Face it, we live in a society that doesn't see this sort of thing as bad. That's entirely sensical for a simple reason: the lyrics and the dance moves are innuendo. The only people who get that it's sexual are the people who already know how sex works --- ie. they've been exposed to it before. If they've been exposed to it before, then they're not being corrupted by the dancers hinting at it now. The "think of the children" argument is ridiculous for exactly that reason. If little Timmy knows that "bump and grind" is a sexual motion, then the dance isn't the thing corrupting him!

There's a time and a place for everything.

In our society, we've accepted sexual innuendo in "family entertainment". Female dancers at sports have *always* been sexual. Hell, the practice is very similar to the dances communities would have for young women to show their availablity (ie: their sexual maturity). The only thing different here is the exact manifestation of these dances are changing to better fit our more sexually relaxed society.

RTFA, the old man didnt touch her.

I remember looking back on when I was younger that middle school girls grinding to "Get Down on IT" was a little crass, but it seemes sooooooooo right at the time...........

ok, so I misread, either way...John Glass, an associate athletic director, stepped between them and grabbed DiNardo's arm, apparently bruising it. it wasn't his place to step in and he should have kept his hands to himself...assault, I hope he gets pwned in court.
