Let's! Go! EMS!

Maybe it was the single-digit wind chills, the nearly nonexistent tailgate, the three missed field goals or the multiple fumbles, but the quality of football was a little weak this Saturday.  So weak, in fact, that the highlight of the game had nothing to do with the action on the field.

Somewhere between our QB getting sacked and yet another incomplete pass, my attention drifted over to the equally-underperforming cheerleaders on the sidelines, who were in the middle of some complicated formation that involved throwing people up in the air.  Unfortunately, like many of our receivers, they had a little problem with catching.

From the stands, it looked like her leg took the brunt of the fall, but I found myself calling the play-by-play of spinal immobilization to my friends as EMS boarded and collared her before taking her away.  

The cheerleaders didn't throw anything for the rest of the game.  The football team should have followed their lead.
