Has the fact that you’re an overweight, middle-aged man kept you from fulfilling your dream of becoming a cheerleader?
Your dream can now come true.
Apparently the Florida Marlins decided that baseball fans would rather watch people more like themselves than the girls who usually lead the crowd at professional sports games. The Marlins Manatees will begin their second year as “Major League Baseball’s first all-male dance team” when the season starts off again in the spring. You can take a guess as to how they came up with their name. During the team’s Friday and Saturday home games, fans can see the Manatees performing choreographed numbers to “everything from hip-hop and rock to disco and salsa.”
Sadly, you’ve missed your chance to try out for this year’s team, so make sure you mark your calendars for next year’s audition in January.
