Found January 26, 2013 on Purple Jesus Diaries:
Hurray, everyone! The NFL Pro Bowl is here! That means we ... Get to ... Uh, crap, what does this mean ... We get to watch practice, pretty much? Dudes playing touch football? Rich people enjoying extravagance on a tropical island in the sunshine while we freeze our testicles to our Adam's Apples? I'm trying to remember why this is even a thing at all. Oh, right. Cheerleaders in swimsuits! If you're wondering if this is just a ploy and/or attempt to grab at some pageviews, yes it is. However, it's also an attempt to look at some washboard abs you could scrub a coffee stain out of on some attractive ladies. And so, we present to you a grab bag of photos from Melissa, the Minnesota Vikings cheerleader who was selected to represent the team at the 2013 Pro Bowl in Hawaii this weekend. According to her team profile on the Vikings website, Melissa has been on the team for six years. That seems like a long time for an NFL cheerleader, doesn't it? I would imagine there's a lot of turnover there, because it likely doesn't pay very well. Can it? It mean, it has to be an opportunity job, rather than a full time one, a resume builder if you will. But clearly Melissa enjoys cheering in front of all you slobbering buffoons because she's come back to continue it for several years. Of course, getting a trip to Hawaii out of the deal is too bad, either. So here she is, reppin' Minnesota like a BAWS in Hawaii, along with several other team Cheerleader representatives. Enjoy! Photos pretty much all found from the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders Twitter account. So quick, go click. [follow]
