Killer QueensThe L.A. Kings make the Stanley Cup Finals as local Hockey fans go nuts, but the actual Southland Regality resides in Westwood, where the Bruin Princesses RULE

I don’t care a lot about Hockey, because UCLA doesn’t play it, and because there are no Bruin Alumni competing in the NHL to root for, or any ex-trojans to root against (afaik).  But my Facebook page exploded tonight, and not just because of the 3.8 Earthquake that rocked Westwood tonight.  My FB news feed went berzerk because the Los Angeles Kings won their third straight Game 7 on the Road — an unprecedented feat — to reach the Stanley Cup Finals, where they will face the New York Rangers.  I am happy for my friends, but… I also have several “frenemies” who are raging King fans.  I have been rooting for the Kings since long before they switched colors from Purple and Gold, but now I abhor seeing some of these personal rivals — many of whom are die-hard trojan fans — get to celebrate.

So in spite of decades of rooting for the Kings, I suddenly find myself rooting against them.  That being said, I really don’t care all that much about Hockey any more, and I’m just using this occurrence as an excuse to post some more photos of the UCLA Spirit Squad, which I haven’t done in WAY too long. The Bruin Cheerleaders have been on my mind today, as it appears that they had their annual photo shoot today for their website for the upcoming year.  So I decided to share some photos of my own.  Below you will find 39 never-seen-before photos, from last year’s Colorado Football game.  Please enjoy, and click on the pics to enlarge.  I am using a new computer now, so if you encounter any issues, please let me know.  Thanks.

    What is the name of this UCLA cheerleader?!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/gallery_1200/march-madness-meet-ncaa-tournament-cinderellas.jpg

    [T-H’s Note: I’m not sure. I think it’s Paula, but it could possibly be McKenna or even someone else from an earlier year. Maybe someone will see this comment and confirm her identity for us.]
