Arizona Cardinals Cheerleaders Seeking New Recruits
It's time to show 'em what you've got:
The Arizona Cardinals are looking for a few good cheerleaders following the team's stellar season as Super Bowl contenders.
If you've got the right moves, can squeeze your butt into one of those postage-stamp-size pair of shorts and you're hot enough to steal attention away from Larry Fitzgerald, you might even have a chance during April tryouts. According to the Cardinals Web site, clinics that prepare women for the stressful tryouts begin March 19.
This isn't a job for the desperately unemployed. Though the tryout package says cheerleaders who make the team must make a yearlong commitment starting in May, there's no mention anywhere of pay. In fact, the clinics cost a few bucks and you'll apparently have to buy your own uniform -- the Cards provide only a miserly 15-percent-off coupon at a clothing store.
Here's how the Web site describes the job:
Imagine cheering in front of 60,000 fans, being a role model for young
children, and supporting hundreds of charity/ community groups in the
valley! This group of beautiful, sophisticated, and talented women does
it all and you have a chance to be a part of it.
Indeed, imagine cheering in front of 60,000 fans at a Super Bowl.
And imagine that -- this time -- the Cardinals win.
