Cheerleader notes

I stumbled onto a copy of the 3-part special the NFL network ran last July about "Making the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders"...

I wanted to make a couple of points about it:
Danielle - who was the Dolphins representative at the Pro Bowl - did a Hawaiian dance during auditions. Was she lobbying to go to the probowl before she even made the team? Then again, she was seen helping out the staff during the preliminary auditions.

And then I was noticing that they spent a lot of time talking with 3 hopefuls - Jeannie, Tamara, and Esther - all of whom made the squad. And yet, they do not appear on the website, nor in the media guide. And I can't recall seeing any of them on the field.

What's up with that? Was this a fake made-for-TV moment?

Hmmmm. I think we should investigate. Thorougly. Lots of one-one interviews.

Ricky, Ricky, Ricky...

What we have found over the years is that usually when you hear about something from "an NFL source," it turns out to be true. But, it did strike me as odd that Ricky's failed drug test was reported by media in Denver, rather than here in Miami (though it was reported on in Miami later).

I guess the fact that there was a possibility of a trade to Denver had the media scrambling around to dig up new dirt on our old friend.

I have decided that on this website, we will no longer refer to Ricky Williams by his name. Nope. Instead, we will refer to him as "the weirdo."

As an aside, I was looking for a picture to add here, and I stumbled onto one on the Department of Defense website. A real Ricky Williams. Someone who is busy defending our country [editor's note: whether or not we agree with the war in Iraq is irrelevant, our soldiers are still doing their duty].
