That is a pretty elaborate routine for girls that young.

I was in Atlanta last year during Cheer Week and it was a nightmare. Screaming girls practicing routines everywhere.

Nice routine! I don't remember ever seeing cheerleaders back in our day doing "routines" as such. I mean, they did the pyramids, but nothing overly elaborate otherwise. But this seems to have become very big in terms of competitions and all.

Now, about your remark about Chess needing cheerleaders, maybe these cheers would help make the game more exciting:

"GIMME A 'C'!!!
GIMME AN 'H'!!!
GIMME AN 'E'!!!
GIMME AN 'S'!!!
GIMME AN 'S'!!!
WHAT DOES THAT SPELL? CHESS!! YAAAAAAYYYY!!!!"

Or this one...

"SPASSKY! SPASSKY! HE'S OUR MAN! IF HE CAN'T DO IT - KASPAROV CAN!!!
KASPAROV, KASPAROV, HE'S OUR MAN..."

Great ideas, eh?! ;-)

I don't watch the practices specifically so I can appreciate how the routines improve and change, but I've heard stories and the next one is going to be a pip, especially given the age of this group.

You're kinda dating yourself with those players, aren't you? But then again, there don't seem to be any real chess "stars" these days.

Where you been hiding, Nick? Give me a FB shout next time you're on there.

    My 25-year-old daughter, a college graduate from SUNY New Paltz and working in the world of theater, making props. Currently her work can be seen on the campus of the University of North Carolina in Durham, with the Playmakers.
