[NOTE:  This article includes 47 brand new UCLA Cheerleader photos following the brief text.]

Sincere congratulations go out today to former Bruin Dance-Teamer Nicolette, who has just been added to the prestigious Laker Girls.  As you probably know, hundreds of girls try out every year for the honor of donning the iconic Purple and Gold, so it is quite an accomplishment for our Blue and Gold Nicolette to have made it through this grueling competition.  But as you also probably know, Nicolette is entirely worthy, and raises the overall quality of the Laker Girls, with her striking looks and flawless dancing, just as Lizzi did when SHE succeeded in passing the audition previously.

Now here’s my only problem:  I’ve been a Laker fan since the 60’s, but I can’t force myself to root for ex-trojan and current Laker Nick Young, who is now one of the scoring leaders of the Lakers, and often gets to take (and usually miss) the clutch shots in crunch time.  I’m guessing the Coach calls a play for someone else to shoot, but Young chucks it up there himself anyway.  Clank.  Once a gunner, always a gunner.  Even with Kobe returning to health this season, I’m sure Young will remain a crucial element to the Lakers’ attack, and it will be almost impossible to root for the Lakers while hoping that Young is not involved in the outcome.  Alas… If only the Lakers had traded him away in a package deal for Kevin Love.  Instead, to root for Love, I have to NOT root against LeBron, who is now Love’s teammate in Cleveland.  What if the Lakers shock the World this year, and reach the Western Finals, where they might have to play the Thunder, and Russell Westbrook.  And if they win, then they’d face the Cavaliers.  I don’t think I could stand watching an ex-trojan get by two heroic Bruins to win a title, even though I would love to see Kobe defeat LeBron.  At least if the Lakers win, I can be happy for Nicolette and Lizzi, who are lovely people, whom I want to be filled with joy and happiness.

The above photo is Nicolette, and the photo below is Lizzi.  And after that there are 47 brand new photos of the UCLA Spirit Squad from last season’s Football game versus Washington.  Maybe you can pick out who will be the NEXT Bruin Cheerleader to become a Laker Girl!  Don’t forget to click on the horizontal pics to enlarge/zoom in.
