Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Must have Brain and not just Bust
To become a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader you have to pass quizzes on Cowboys history, Texas culture and world affairs.
Here is why they get quizzed:
"We want our cheerleaders to be knowledgeable and well-spoken in interviews," says Cowboys cheerleading boss Kelli Finglass. "If they're not, it's a deal breaker."
Here are some of the questions they get quizzed on:
Q: Name the Six Flags of Texas.
Q: Name the two ex-Cowboys quarterbacks in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Q: Name a country that borders Iraq.
Q: Who is the governor of Texas?
Q: List three lean proteins.
Q: In how many Super Bowls have the Dallas Cowboys appeared?
I had no idea these cheerleaders had to know so much about football, Texas and world affairs. I thought they just had to look pretty, be flexible and know how to dance and cheer with a smile.
So for all those guys out there who consider cheerleaders ditsy airheads, think again.
