Why young people are best left alone in cheerleading squads

More than 300 women showed up to compete to become a New England Patriots cheerleader on Saturday, including one rather keen older participant.

41 year old Shelly Lawlor felt she was up to the challenge, reported Deadspin.

Boston.com has a full range of for news interest only shots of the tryouts here. I don’t wish to be unkind, but really, 41? Yikes, I’ve only got 8 years to go, and I might end up having a head like a grandma…well, accept I’m male, but you get the idea. Still, there are older patrons who watch sport who’d appreciate Lawlor’s looks. Olden female patrons that is ;-)
