I couldn’t have asked for a better (or worse) performance from the cheerleading squad after the column I wrote in last week’s issue.
The comedy of errors began when the flag-bearer failed to unravel the flag before running out onto the court at the beginning of the game with fairly embarrassing consequences (given his past performances, at least he didn’t hit anybody with it). It got worse during “Deal or No Deal” when one of the cheerleaders read the prize as “Two tickets to see the Harlem Glob-trotters,” to the horror and resounding boos of about 15,000. To top it all off, the squad came out for its main routine (at a pivotal moment in the game with the Hoyas up four and in foul trouble) and stood looking very confused when the music would not play. The fans happily bailed the cheerleaders out and instead of suffering through another sad performance we were treated to one of the more emphatic “We are Georgetown” chants of the night.
Is there a Voice reader working the sound system for the basketball games?
