Washington Redskins Cheerleader Chelsea is apparently on a quest to become Queen Of All Media. She’s already got the live performance thing down, obviously, as a cheerleader on gamedays. She’s conquering TV bit by bit — locally, she co-hosts Inside The Redskins with DeAngelo Hall at 10:00 a.m. Saturday mornings on NBC-4; nationally we saw her on the Today Show last week. She’s on Twitter, so she’s got that squared away.
And now she’s made her way into print. Chelsea is the first Monday Morning Cheerleader on Esquire.com, offering her take on Sunday night’s win over the Cowboys, and a few other things.
ESQ: This one featured four scores surrounded by a lot of stalled drives. What do cheerleaders do when it seems like nothing is happening on the field?
C: Normally, we’re dancing. We force a smile and dance through it when something bad happens. I don’t want to say it’s tough to stay positive – it’s harder to get the crowd to stay positive. Forty girls screaming in a 90,000-person stadium can only do so much. You know, you’re forgetting the most important thing…
ESQ: The golden pants?
C: Yes! I loved it. It really made them stand out. Bringing back the pants from the sixties and seventies was definitely cool. We actually have a bright yellow uniform, and I want to put that on so we can all match.
There’s plenty more in the link; now I’m just fearing for my job if Chelsea decides to take up blogging.
