SPORTS ILLUSTRASIAN: China’s 200,000 New Cheerleaders

August 4th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Just when you were beginning to believe that our trade relations with China were totally one-sided–with America buying up all the crap that’s made in China and never vice-versa–here’s an example of China importing our doo:

Yeah, that’s right. CHINESE CHEERLEADERS. Since June, 200,000 Chinese volunteers have been training to be cheerleaders in preparation for the Olympic games. The New England Patriot Cheerleaders were even brought in to assist–why the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders were bypassed, I don’t know–and probably had something to do with producing the ELITE SQUAD you just witnessed in the video (no, I’m not kidding).

Which reminds me. When I was growing up, my Dad used to threatened to disown me if I so much as thought about becoming a cheerleader, and I used to think he was such a fucking Hardass Asian Buzzkill for that, but now I GET IT. I totally get it.
