if you think this is a sport, you're an idiot. it is not a sport. cheerleading is when a group of screaming whores do cheers, moves, and lift each other up. cheerleading is so unathletic that they do a cheer for about 3 minutes and then they're done. a fat kid can run 5 minutes on a treadmill and it'd still be more athletic then cheerleading. thats how stupid and pointless it is. it is not a sport. if you're a girl, and you want to get into sports, then you should try basketball, that's a REAL SPORT. cheerleading is gay period.
