Auto-Motion 2012

The Detroit Free Press provides a glimpse into the 2012 Detroit Auto-Motion tryouts and I think it deserves mention. I mean, what are sports without cheerleaders, or pom pom girls, or dance teams?! Don't these young ladies deserve some credit for being part of the game?!

I for one am really disappointed that the Lions don't have cheerleaders. Is it sexist to want cheerleaders? I think it's just part of the tradition and it also provides for women to be part of the sport. I don't personally think women are likely to play football with men on the field, but they shouldn't be not allowed to be involved either.

Should we acknowledge the dancers of the Pistons or pretend to be oblivious to their role in being part of the fun and the excitement we all feel when we attend a game? The thousands of people make a difference. The uncontrollable noise makes a difference. The dancers, and the mascot also make a difference in my opinion.

I think we should appreciate them, otherwise we risk losing them. Losing them would make the event less in my opinion. So, I hope you'll join me in celebrating them as part of the game, and recognize their contribution and commitment as a real positive.
