Get your motor running: The nimble and sporty models who have the power to grant your wildest wishes, stretch it to the Redline
Wouldn’t you just love to bottle them up and keep them forever? Well, you can’t get the genies back in their bottles, but maybe Mollie and the Judges can. In ONE week from today, the results that some of you are dying for will be released. As we reported yesterday, Wednesday, April 30th is the evening when everyone will find out who made the next version of the UCLA Spirit Squad.
Based on some of the comments, we are not the only fans who care about this upcoming announcement. It could be the near-equivalent of when Bruin Star Ballplayers declare early for the Pro’s — after cheering for/with some of these Girls (and Guys) for a year or more, it’s just devastating to see them leave, and it’s even worse when the departure isn’t even BY THEIR CHOICE.
If Mollie or anyone from her camp from 4 years ago is reading this, they have GOT to be smirking. They came to us back then, trying to change our outlook — and our shot selection — by “putting a face” on the Squadmembers. If we saw the Girls as the individual, down-to-earth PEOPLE that they were, instead of a group of objects, we would represent them differently. Well, Mollie was right, moreso than she could have ever imagined. Who knew that it would have progressed to the point where we are freaking out over specific Girls possibly losing their positions on the team…BECAUSE we can’t bear for them to have their feelings hurt??
You know what? We bet that if any Returnees DO get snubbed, THEY will probably take it more maturely and less bitterly than we will. That being said, it’s necessary to re-iterate: Regardless of how disappointed we are, there will be NO second-guessing, or Monday-Morning Quarterbacking, or whining, or complaining — about whomever Mollie’s Selection Committee decides will be the best to represent UCLA. Their recent Track Record earns them that Respect. Okay?
Speaking of Track Records and Respect, Scott Wolf reported today that the USC Band is no longer welcome at ANY Rivalry game at UCLA. We have been telling you for years that troy’s Band violates all the established protocols for such events, and apparently, they crossed the line yet again, at a Women’s Basketball game in Pauley. It is unclear at this point what their list of transgressions included — verbal abuse of Bruin Cheerleaders would not be a stretch — but one trojan bandmember seems to brag about taunting small children with the trojan salute as the kids were forced to walk below them to get to the restroom. Myriad fan complaints would certainly seem to justify a ban, but we have no idea if that is really the case.
The “ban” is “bilateral,” meaning that the Bruin Band will not be traveling to any events at sc. Obviously, Football is exempt from the ban, on both sides, so the Solid Gold Sound will still have to make that dangerous trek to South Central once every two years, but at least they don’t have to go to Galen Center at night (And at least their buses don’t have to park on someone’s front lawn and leave the keys).
Below are 20 more photos from Sunday’s Try-outs. Feel free to leave comments. These “compliments-by-the-number” are pretty amusing. And just so you know, this is an Independently-owned “blog,” so I can guarantee you that if you add a comment, your e-mail address is NOT getting sold to a spammer, and will NOT subject you to ANY future solicitation from us or anyone else. So go ahead and show your support — risk free — Don’t forget: I won’t approve negative feedback, so if you think you found one extra pound on someone on one angle, DON’T BOTHER. But if you want to rave about your fave, especially someone who isn’t already receiving the support, please do so.
And in honor of the Lamborghini headline: If you “mouse over” these photos, you’ll see what kind of car we’d like to buy for each Girl, if this were Reggie Bush U., that is based on a bunch of ludicrous assumptions and generaliztions going purely on looks.
Gentlemen — Start your engines!
