I just wanted to say that I am greatly annoyed at all the cheerleaders who think it is a sport. They complain about how expensive it is, and how everyone needs to give them donations. First of all, cheerleaders barley practice. A couple hours a week, where they talk, stand, and move there hands from side to side. I am a runner, and I run six days a week. I work hard every day, run miles a day, and at the end of each run I am breathing hard and tired. Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE running. There is nothing I would rather do, but this is my point. When you run you work hard, you train, and work your muscles. That is an actual sport. Cross Country does not have enough money for everyone to get matching uniforms. While cheerleaders have 3 regular outfits, some "competition" outfit, and at a meeting, their coach complained because they don't have enough money to buy them matching pajamas! So all you cheerleaders stop complaining, and think of what you do and how many hours you spend, as while as how tired you get, to others.
