Who says this generation has no soul?

It is the PC idiots that seem to be lacking.

The squad is having to defend themselves and their routine.

They are simply sensational, mimi.  Thanks for sharing.

Just curious- what's the school and where is it?  And... when do they find time to study?

I just watched them again and noticed the large amt of cheerleaders as well as a squad of another sort wearing Tyler Roses type Calvary hats.

Just about in the middle of the bleachers.

THAT is def a SMALL squad for its type (marching).....

Maybe some of the cheerleaders (Yell Call in East Texas) play double duty at parade time?

I am getting really interested in stuff like this for the 4 year old Grand.

Working on some gym tuck and rolls on LR carpet.

Say a prayer for the new big screen plz  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/drinkbeer.gif

 This is a small town school. Lumberton High School. Here in Texas, sports(especially Football) are the big thing.

Cheerleading and Drill Teams are very respected. I developed a horrible taste in my mouth when I heard that these cheerleaders were getting some shit from the media. Using snippettes and sound bits of the day.

Having lost relatives back in 9-11 even made that performance more meaningful for me. 

I've been here for a while and I can tell you, if you want to meet some really nice kids with their head screwed on right just visit small town Texas. I forwarded this video to 2 of my nieces here. They are doing the cheer thing here in the city. It's a whos who. I pointed out to them that those cheerleaders were real. They all weren't a size 2. It was refreshing to see that. Also it was good to here that the school had a fishing team too. 

BTW enroll your grand daughter in a pageant and get boosted from CT.

Don't go having a stroke my friend!
We are on the same page lol.

One of my nieces owns a cheer gym (pretty good squad) and she starts enrollment at age 5.
We go to a few of the tourneys and the kid is just to dying to get her first pom poms so I am starting her out with a few gym floor moves.

Taught her to skate while I had her all to myself at the beach house in June.

But jeeze no on the pagents..... prolly gonna step on someone's toes here but the pagent circle kids look like little ladies of the nite IMO.
All that makeup and hairspray?
eek.

Noticed the cheer squad in the vid were all different sizes and shapes and was really proud of them.....

OK. I'm sure it must be just me. ... I don't get the point. What exactly is there to defend? Who could have any complaint here?

That's the point.

The vid was just so popular that CNN and a few other sites picked it up as inappropriate?

That's how I came across it.....

Like pan pointed out cheer squads are highly competitive.

First time I have seen it get as far as world headlines....crazy.

Once the clip ended on Youtube another one loaded automatically afterwards.  The subject was a video about 911 jumpers.... disturbing images.

Jumping and 911 were the operative words that connected the 2 videos... talk about opposite meaning for the same words.

Thanks for this @Luc_H  .

I couldn't figure it out and by the time I saw it the news cycle was over....

Like @IceMan  puts it stupid people....

I mean with either the demons being released today (or the Pope taking over the world) I have too much on my plate to bother with youtube bullies lol.
