Cheerleaders Take Off Skimpy Uniforms at Request of Fans

It's not what you think.

In the news: The Idaho U. cheerleaders' bare-midriff, mini-skirted, laced-up uniforms drew complaints from spectators. As the L.A. Times put it, " 'A number of fans were concerned that the uniforms were inappropriate,' said Bruce Pitman, dean of students. 'To be fair, there were a number of fans who liked them.' " I can see both points.

The uniforms aren't all that revealing, by contemporary standards, from most angles, provided the young women don't move around too much. What I still don't understand is how they can do some of the usual cheerleader moves, without that skirt riding up, turning inside out, and becoming a cummerbund.

"I still think the purpose of cheerleaders is to distract the other team." (A Minnesotan, after hearing about the Idaho cheerleaders)

AC Repair Baltimore/Amanda,

True enough, but I still don't see how those young women can move their legs, beyond a moderate walk.

I suppose the fabric stretches.
