Houston Texans Cheerleader Finalists Close Up ... Really Close Up

Texans CheerleadersHOUSTON -- One thing I like doing as a writer is letting people get a sense of what it's like to be at an event. On Thursday, I attended the Houston Texans Draft Party at Reliant Stadium. This year, the Texans let the fans decide who was going to be on the cheerleading squad. All the finalists wore numbers, did a dance routine, and then the fans voted for the winners.

The area where they had the dancing was a really tight space, and it was hard to shoot video of it. Local TV crews stood right in front of everyone, so I had to get on the floor to shoot the vid. What a great use of my education. I have to say the dancing was crazy. There were over 40 contestants, and they got ridiculously close. So close that if I were Tracy Morgan, they'd all be pregnant. Fortunately for all, I am not. Ew. Watch the video, and you be the judge:

You might be saying that you have no interest in cheerleader tryouts at all. I can respect that point of view. But somebody must like them. The video I posted recently in the entry entitled "Houston Texans Cheerleader Tryouts Video: The Invasion" has a ton of page views.

If you want to know who ends up being on the squad, I suggest going to the Houston Texans Cheerleader Tryouts Page. The winners will be announced on their website on April 27.
