Apparently, the hip new thing for ladies of famous sportspeople in America is to join an NFL cheerleading squad.
Or, we just have two random aberrations on our hands with the daughters of Doug Flutie and Tony LaRussa signing up for the Patriots and Raiders squads, respectively.
LaRussa's daughter, Bianca, tried out for the Raiders back in mid-April and tweeted the news that she'd made the squad, along with the photo you see to the right.
"A goal and a dream come true- I'm a 2011 Raiderette! I'm so excited to rep an organization that does so much good," Bianca tweeted.
Flutie's daughter, on the other hand, will be suiting up for the Patriots -- as Chris Chase pointed out at Shutdown Corner , it's kind of surprising that Flutie has a 23-year-old daughter.
Not because 27-years-old is a weird age to start having kids (it's not), but because for those of us who remember Wade Phillips yanking him just in time for the "Music City Miracle" suddenly feel old as hell.
Of course, that's not as bad as working on this post mid-airplane-flight and having the passengers around me wondering and/or judging whatever semi-creepy thing I do for a living. (A: Blogging!)
But I digress -- here's a pic of the lovely young Ms. Flutie, the reigning Miss Massachusetts, with the rest of her fellow Patriot cheerleaders, courtesy of Boston.com .
And now you see why my fellow passengers were glaring, which is exactly the same thing that many an NFL fan will do next year, probably to the chagrin of LaRussa and Flutie.
