A Los Angelista Giveaway: We Cheer 2 for Wii

Things I've never been able to do: the splits, a back flip, a cartwheel.

However, despite my athletic deficiencies, I somehow ended up being a varsity cheerleader during my junior year in high school. You know how it is - one day you're nerding it out with the chess club and writing letters for Amnesty International, and the next day you've got a girl that weighs a buck-o-five standing on your shoulders and you're both yelling, "Dee-Fense!"

Now, after years of thinking my cheerleading days were completely in my past, I'm once again shaking my wii remotes pom-poms and jumping up and down thanks to We Cheer 2 - the high-energy cheerleading game for all ages and genders (seriously, boys, too!) from NAMCO BANDAI Games.

There's still no splits, back flips or cartwheels required -- thank goodness because yours truly, Queen Geriatrica, probably couldn't handle them anyway. I like that the cheerleading moves feel more like dancing, and we all know dancing is like exercising without realizing you're exercising.

I also liked that I was able to customize the cheerleaders to make them look like whatever I want. Here's my girl Zoe -- she's from Indianapolis and she likes to cheer to "Push It" by Salt-N-Pepa, just like I used to back in my heyday.
I tried to get my sons to compete with me to be cheer captain, but no amount of telling them there are male cheerleading characters in the game (and they could cheer to a cool Red Hot Chili Peppers song) could get them to participate. My six year-old told me if I paid him $20 he'd play. Oh well. They missed out.

Los Angelista,
Why you have to go and do this:

“Now, after years of thinking my cheerleading days were completely in my past, I'm once again shaking my wii remotes pom-poms and jumping up and down”

Was that an Intended double entendre?

37 ain’t old! You just “shake it like a Polaroid picture”!

I think my six year old would like this (I'm hopelessly uncoordinated) so I'll tell you about the cheerleaders in my school.
I grew up in a tiny town of 2500, where is was probably close to 65% Mormon.
And you know how in small towns cheerleaders get a reputation for being "hussies?"
Anyway, some of the cheerleaders were Mormon and guess what? THEY were the floozies, not the non Mormon girls.
And all the good Mormon boys dated the "Good Mormon Girls" and then later they "repented" and went on missions and came home and married virgins (but none of the girls they dated in highschool). And that is just one of the many reason why I'm not Mormon any more.
I got along much better with the non Mormon cheerleaders. They were much nicer.
So that is my story about cheerleaders, because I just thought about people I've not seen or thought of in ten years:)

You could always tell your boys that even former President Bush was once a cheerleader. On second thought, that might not help your case...

I think if we win this contest then the girls can have a reason to play with their cousins.
