Outrage: Granny, 55, Wants To Be Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader! Heck No!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Sharon Simmons wanted to try out for the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders when she was in her 20s, but she lacked the confidence. Three decades later, she`s got plenty of it, and come May 5, the 55-year-old grandmother will be out there auditioning against women more than half her age."


The Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders are an American institution, they are beloved in Dallas and all over the world. The Dallas Cowboys organization fiercely protects the image of the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders from imitators and anyone else who would tarnish their brand.

If Simmons makes the cheerleading squad, she will ruin their perfect image. Simmons may be a certified personal trainer and nutritionist, but you can`t fight gravity and you can`t stop the ageing process. It`s one thing for a cheerleader`s pom-pons to be down to her hips, but nobody wants to see a 50-something cheerleader with her breasts hanging down to her wrinkled hips.

I believe in "I am woman, hear me roar", but Simmons is too old to be a cheerleader. It may do wonders for her self-esteem and female-empowerment if she makes the squad, but what about the thousands in the stadium who simply don`t want to see a grandma cheerleader. Simmons is the epitome of the selfish woman who thinks only about herself, and to damn with everyone else.

When fans see hot cheerleaders on the sidelines they fantasize about making love to them, not helping them to cross the street.

The oldest woman ever to dance with the Cowboys cheerleaders was 37, and that was pushing it. If this brazen woman makes the squad, Tom Landry will roll over in his grave, and thousands of fans will gnash their teeth in bitter disappointment. Enough with political-correctness tomfoolery -- how dare Simmons even think she should be a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader.
