Guys who cheerlead only do it so they can grope the female cheerleaders. A motive I totally respect and wish I realized in highschool.

Dude has some serious stretch marks on his shoulders.  He needs to be careful with managing weight and bulk.

That's a pic of me cheering. Girl is 5'4, I'm 6'3". Many male cheerleaders could play football, but why would you wanna touch other dudes when you can touch girls?

There was a guy when I was in HS that was a cheerleader and was on the rugby team.

The male cheerleaders at my school were bigger than the offensive linemen on the football team

Sure some are gay, but the straight ones realize where they get to put their hands...

Does it require athletic ability? Yes. As does figure skating, ball room dancing and gymnastics But this does not make them sports.

Anything that requires the subjective opinion of a judge for the award of points is not to a sport (To include boxing), it is merely an athletic event at best. In sports you score points by making a goal , hitting a target, setting the fastest time etc, not based on the opinion of somebody sitting off to the side.

My daughter is a cheerleader. She is captain of her team. She's 13, you pervs.

Let me tell you this, cheer is nothing more than Game of Thrones in skirts.

The olympic taekwondo competition has solved this by using sensors on the gloves, foot pads and chest protectors so as long as the pressure threshold is reached the hit is scored automatically. No more interpretation if the hit lands by humans. The only thing the judges do is score head hits and even then the couch has two challenges that get reviewed by from multiple angels (and the couch gets the challenge back if successful).

All in all boxing (amateur and olympic at least) should copy the tech.

My 15 year old is cheering this year because it got her out of gym class.

I can't tell you how un-cheerleaderlike she is.  We were all shocked.

My daughter is a Junior. She has been cheering since she was 6. I hate it, and think it's pointless. But it makes her happy and it's relatively harmless.

I personally liked the seacrest intro, mainly because my tv was on mute and the cheerleaders got solid tv time, because its funny to see a full grown man with rows of women who are necks above him.

I thought the new standard in schools was they everybody who tries out for cheerleading makes it now.
How can that get Game of Throne-sish?

There must be a queen.  Unless it's a co-ed squad.

sport (v.)
c.1400, "to take pleasure, to amuse oneself," from Anglo-French disport, Old French desport "pastime, recreation, pleasure," from desporter "to divert, amuse, please, play" (see disport). Sense of "to amuse oneself by active exercise in open air or taking part in some game" is from late 15c. Meaning "to wear" is from 1778. Related: Sported; sporting.


sport (n.)
mid-15c., "pleasant pastime," from sport (v.). Meaning "game involving physical exercise" first recorded 1520s. Original sense preserved in phrases such as in sport "in jest" (mid-15c.). Sense of "stylish man" is from 1861, American English, probably because they lived by gambling and betting on races. Meaning "good fellow" is attested from 1881 (e.g. be a sport, 1913). Sport as a familiar form of address to a man is from 1935, Australian English. The sport of kings was originally (1660s) war-making.

for more information:
http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/83222/origin-of-the-word- sp ort

the old english word spyrd probably meant racing.  But, there is no evidence to suggest that spyrd survived into middle english.  sport more likely comes from the middle english word sport(e):

1.  (a) Amusement, entertainment; pleasure, fun; also, an activity that brings pleasure or amusement; a pastime or game; also, a sexual exploit, an amorous deed [quot. c1450, 2nd]; don sportes, to play games; haven (taken) ~, take (one's) pleasure, have fun; participate in merrymaking; maken ~, create amusement, make sport; (b) a source of pleasure or delight; (c) joking; foolery; in ~, in jest; connen no ~, to engage in no foolery.

2.  Solace, consolation; also, a means of comfort or consolation; maken ~, to console (sb.), cheer up.
