STOP THE PRESSES!  Put away whatever bullsh-t story you’re reading about the Iraq war or the auto industry bailout, and pay attention to this front-page A1 above-the-fold news: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers held cheerleading tryouts!

It doesn’t matter if you’re a rookie or a three-year veteran… If you want to be a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders, you have to try out.

“They have a little more to lose if when they’ve already been on the team,” Bucs cheerleading coach Sandy Charboneau said. “There’s a lot of competition.”

More than 300 women attended try-outs [this weekend] at the University of South Florida Sun Dome for one of about 30 spots for the 2009-10 squad, Charboneau said. “They’re vying for a small percentage of women that can be in the NFL.”

…and by “NFL” she means “football fans’ twisted erotic fantasies prominently featuring garden vegetables, barbed wire, and motor oil.”  Or is that just me?
