Now We Know Why The WNBA Doesn't Have Cheerleaders

Well, these type of stories don't come along every day. As we're sure most of you have heard by now, two Carolina Panthers cheerleaders were arrested in Tampa early Sunday morning after, police say, the two of them were getting them some Sheryl Swoopes in the bathroom. That itself isn't illegal (thank God!); punching a woman who was complaining about the wait outside the bathroom is.

So far, the cheerleaders are saying it's a case of mistaken identity, which, if true, freaking sucks. But, if police reports are to be believed, we're dealing with Renee and Angela. Not surprisingly, it's darned-near impossible to get on their official Panthers bio pages right now — though we think it's worth the wait — but Panthers officials emphasize that they made the trip to Tampa on their own; the team does not have cheerleaders for road games.

We could go on and on about this, and rest assured, we will. But for now, we're just going to reemphasize that two Carolina Panthers cheerleaders were allegedly having sex with each other in the bathroom of a Florida bar. We totally went to the wrong bars this weekend.

(Surprisingly, The Daily Quickie at ESPN.com is all over this story. With John Skipper running the show over there, apparently they can say anything now. Good for them! Also on top of this is Off Wing Opinion.)
