1The top men are dropping like flies at the Australian Open. The top five men's seeds including Andre Agassi and Leyton Hewitt were all knocked out in the first round. The women are doing just fine. Venus Williams, Martina Hingis and Jennifer Capriati have all advanced to the fourth round. Serena Williams isn't playing in this year's tournament - she has an ankle injury.

1Shaquille O'Neal was suspended for three games for trying to punch Brad Miller of the Chicago Bulls on January 12th. Brad had fouled Shaq on purpose so Shaq came out swinging. He never connected because he throws punches about as accurately as he shoots foul shots. Losing Shaq was no big deal for the Lakers. In their first game without the all-star center, Kobe Bryant scored 56 points and the Lakers blew out the Memphis Grizzlies by 34 points.

Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!

All cheerleaders and coaches put A LOT of effort and time into making and practicing cheers. It is true that cheerleaders turn people and the players on...but it's much more than that. it's about having fun, teamwork, having some more fun, getting some exercise (uh that kinda makes it a sport right?), and great times with the other girls on your squad.   Rant over lol
