Sports Venues - Honda Center

Also known as "The Pond", the Honda Center is the home of 2007 Stanley Cup finalists, the Anaheim Ducks. We got the goods on this southern Cali arena!

Honda Center - Disney Beginnings

Arrowhead Pond Arena (AKA The Pond) opened its doors in the fall of 1993. The new venue was to become home to the NHL's newest franchise in Anaheim, California. Inspired by the Disney movie, the expansion hockey team was named The Mighty Ducks. In 2006, Arrowhead Pond was renamed the Honda Center and their hockey team was renamed the Anaheim Ducks. The Pond is located just a mile from Angels Stadium, the home of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. While Disneyland is just five miles from the Honda Center.

It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3

Sure, many girls can fight, in fact some can fight really well, however it is a fact that women are generally physically weaker than men, which means that if a healthy male and a healthy female were to fight then the outcome wouldn't be 50/50 but rather 25/75 if even that much, this assumes that both the male and female have the same experience, training and of course both are healthy. This doesn't mean that women are inferior to men, but I am just pointing out facts, the notion that men and women are exactly the same and should be carrying out the same tasks is ridiculous.
