Cheerleaders Show School Spirit Through StreakingSPlease keep the following two things in mind before commenting on this post. 1) These are high school girls and 2) They're from Canada. That's not an excuse or an explanation for why they stripped down to their panties, duct taped their boobs, and streaked across a football field in the middle of a game, but it's just something to keep in mind. The real reason they did it is much simpler to understand—they're the cheerleading squad. Apparently, this has become a bit of a tradition for the final home game at South Delta Secondary School in Delta, British Columbia. The girls somehow think that running into the opponent's huddle with cans of silly string and without their decency will distract and confuse the players, leading their own team to victory. (It worked, btw.) But some folks are mighty P.O.ed...
[Principal Ted] Johnson said he warned students last month not to streak at this year's final game of the season but was, obviously, ignored. Many parents and children left the game in disgust after the prank, he said. "Our position is one that we don't celebrate this. We don't find it funny," he said.
You're darn tootin'! In fact, he's so upset that he told the cheerleaders in no uncertain terms that he will definitely suspend them ... next time. This one's gonna slide, but no streaking for at least a good month or so. Tough, but fair. This Definitely Never Happened At My High School [FanIQ]
