Continuing today's cheerleader theme. My latest article:

Rest assured that usually those "popular" kids who wouldn't give you the time day end up in dead end jobs, overweight, divorced three times and enough kids to start a baseball team.

That cheerleader/armed robber story reminded me of a Julie Brown tune where part of the chorus was:

"Everybody run! The homecoming queen's got a gun!"

Odd coincidence -- last night I was alerted to the existence of: "Satan's Cheerleaders" (1977).

Sounds like I should be watching cheering instead of hockey!

Today, Cheyen Weatherly would be made homecoming queen and given an ESPY award.

I knew I'd run across Elizabeth Maddex's story before! "Sugar & Spice" (2001) has the same plot. I don't know if the movie was in any way based on her. Although a box office bomb, it's a neat little movie for what it is (I recommend someone watch it if it crosses their path, but it isn't the kind of movie to bothering searching for or buy a DVD sight unseen).

Just remembered, what about the cheerleader mom who had her daughter's competitor's mom killed to put the girl off her game and let her own daughter win a spot on the squad. Twisted!

KDP is right. At my 10th HS reunion all the perky, pretty girls had bulked up considerable, were cruising for new husbands and their personalities had not changed a bit. I understand the adult film industry has a collection of cheerleader themed movies and are always looking for new talent.

At Colorado State University, Cow College, at the 1974 home coming, much to everyone's surprise a bisexual guy was elected homecoming Queen. Most every one boycotted the parade and the king, the usual all American white guy refused to walk arm and arm with her/him or dance at the dance. Considering the time it was a radical event. It was the same year the college hosted a gay film festival, understandably poorly attended. CSU was 2/3 male and had a big farming/ranching/engineering and forestry program at the time.
