How Many Cheerleaders Can a University of Texas Elevator Hold?If you said 26, you're the big winner. Spirit fingers all around. Y'all rock. Only, it seems when you get 26 cheerleaders into one elevator, the elevator stops working. And then cheerleaders start to pass out. Which sort of impacts the fun. How much do you want to bet that when the girls got out, they didn't blame the fact that they had 26 girls in the elevator? Instead they blamed the 1 fat girl for causing the problem. As well they should. But, even still, are Texas high school cheerleaders the Cincinnati Bengals of the high school sports community? Granted there are a lot more Texas cheerleaders but the arrest rate and criminal mischief seems about equal. Raise your hand if you're willing to do in-depth reporting on this plague.
