Earlier this week, CBS Houston writer Claire Crawford wrote a story that raised the question of whether or not one of the Oklahoma City Thunder dancers is “too chunky” to be a cheerleader. The entire story is posted above, and you can read it by clicking each section to enlarge the image.
“We are not trying to be ugly,” Crawford wrote. “We are just discussing what men like in women, specifically NBA cheerleaders.”
Even if men do prefer a specific body type when it comes to cheerleaders, embarrassing the young lady seems totally out of line. CBS Houston probably realized that, which is why the story has been pulled. It even ended with a poll question asking readers if they felt she was perfect for the job, could use some “tightening” up, or has “no business” wearing a cheerleading outfit in front of that many people.
Just a couple months ago, we learned the story of a Green Bay Packers cheerleader who took a stand against cyber bullying after reading all the nasty things that were written about her on Facebook. Fans are always going to be ruthless, but there’s no excuse for the media to perpetuate stereotypes and basically highlight a cheerleader who some may consider to not fit the “cheerleading prototype.” I don’t see how anyone thought this article was worth posting.
In the world of professional sports, the Oklahoma City Thunder are still a relatively young franchise (if you forget about all of that Seattle stuff).
And in the sports world, it takes a little time to establish your traditions, your logo, your colors, your mascot.

Flags are apparently a big deal these days with the youth. Check out these two adorable young Thunder fans who had an unfortunate incident occur when their Oklahoma City Thunder flag apparently fell off their car. The young lady on the right especially took it to heart as those aren’t crocodile tears if you ask me. It must have been a very special flag, huh?
