The Oakland Raiders Hired a Grandmother as One of Their New Cheerleaders
The Oakland Raiders have picked their new cheerleading squad for the 2011-2012 NFL season, and one of their new ladies is . . . a GRANDMA. A 37-year-old grandma, but still, a grandma.
(–Hey, if any woman could represent the female Oakland Raiders fans properly, I guess it is a 37-year-old grandma.)
–Her name is Susie Sanchez. She’s a mother of three, a grandmother of one, and she’s been dancing since she was eight.
–She says it’s always been her dream to be an NFL cheerleader, and she’s tried out five times in the past six years . . . but always got cut.
–There were 232 women at the auditions, and Susie was one of 41 women picked to be on the Raiderettes.
–The Raiderettes say she’s the only grandma cheerleader in the NFL. But she’s not the oldest cheerleader . . . the Cincinnati Bengals have a 42-year-old named Laura Vikmanis.
