The Calgary Flames and the Toronto Maple Leafs were two teams that did not make the playoffs last year. This year they rank #1 and #2 in the NHL pre-season. The Flames are undefeated with a 5-0-0 record and the Leafs are 4-0-1. It’s been almost 20 years since a Canadian team has won the Stanley Cup… is this finally the year that the Cup comes back to Canada?

The Pittsburgh Steelers are the talk of the NFL. Ben Roethlisberger hasn’t even played a game yet and the Steelers are 3-0 and scoring lots of points. What will happen when Big Bad Ben returns?

Sports In The Forums

"FBGirl" wrote:I like cheerleading, but definitely NOT a sport! Sports are physical activity with competition and GEAR. The closest thing cheerleaders have to gear are pom-poms. And, yeah. 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!

"lamiraclelemiracle" wrote:no cheering is not a sport it's something to turn people and the players up I was a cheerleader for 2 years (before I aged out) and we do not only wave pom poms int the air and yell "go team!!". 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
