Ok, this is just wrong: an East Tennessee State University cheerleader was allegedly kicked off the squad because she worked at Hooters.
Eighteen year old Kimberly Sams says the cheerleading coach, Tammy Bartow, told her she was being dismissed because being a "Hooters girl" was not in keeping with the ETSU squad's image. Uh, just what exactly is the lofty ETSU cheerleading image to begin with? No offense, but I didn't even know there was something such as "ETSU" before I read this story. Sounds like some sort of tax form: "After you fill out your 1040, if you have outside income, please fill out the ETSU report as well."
While this is obviously unfortunate for Kimberly, there is a silver lining, folks: We have another competitor for the next first round match-up in the M Zone BCS - Blog Co-ed Showdown!
Tune in next week to find out who she'll be up against.
