Some time ago I wrote about the Redskins’ cheerleader tryouts. The slots have been filled and the pictures taken – now it’s time for the calendar release party at the Clarendon Ballroom tomorrow evening. I don’t know that I’ll be attending but I can understand the appeal of pictures of pretty ladies and getting to watch them perform without the ugly necessity of sitting through a football game.
But really…. if I wanted to get people to show up it would be “autographs and photo opportunities” and “LIVE performances by the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders” that would be in big bold type, not “Hosted by Larry Michael.” Larry, you may be the “voice” of the Redskins (why the spurious quotes?) but they could get Elmer Fudd to do that job for all the difference it’s gonna make to anyone who’s going to that event. Nobody’s coming for the VOICES….
