During the last episode of Hellcats, they debated whether cheerleading (or cheerdancing) is a sport. I’d like to think so, since you really need some athletic strength and skill to be able to do those flips and those jumps and what-have-you’s. Most of those girls (and guys too) are gymnasts even. So yeah, I guess that would be my answer to this question thingamajig.

Waaah, I don’t know anything about American Football but my friend Dodi is all over the New England Patriots so I guess they’re my adopted favorite football team even if I haven’t even watched one game.

I wasn’t really into sports when I was a kid because I was one of those really nerdy little kids that only liked to read and do well in classes and Akiko Thomson is the only athlete I remember from way back when.

Day 11  ELeast Favorite Sports Moment

No one wanted their favorite players (and even their most hated players) in pain. So my least favorite sports moment would be in 2004 when Birdy broke her nose less than three minutes into Game 2 of Seattle’s first-round series against Minnesota when she collided with Lynx Guard Teresa Edwards.

But just 48 hours~ removed from surgery, she dished out 14 assists during Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals against Sacramento. So, you know, broken nose or not, Birdy’s really awesome.
