I'm going through major cheerleading withdrawal.
Everywhere I look I'm seeing cheer. This is probably making everything a million times worse.
After a bit of searching I managed to find the first episode of Cheer from CMT. Some awesome person uploaded it to Vimeo.
Cheer! Part 1/3 from Chris Hudson on Vimeo.
Click the video for the rest of the episode.
Not super thrilled with the series, the team doesn't seem to have any stand out "characters". This whole show is just strange. Last year Lifetime aired a two part pilot called Jersey Cheer. Same gym and team. Now Kelly Ripa has decided to slap her name on as producer and CMA picked it up. It probably only got picked up to try and compete with dance moms. Glad to see its airing though.
After finding a documentary online about "The Twinkles", World Cup's junior team I'm dying for more real life cheer docs.
The Twinkles: Chasing Perfection from Star-Ledger Video on Vimeo.
This is a super fun to watch documentary and really shows what the competition season is all about.
I've said it once and I'll say it a thousand more times,
I don't think I can live without cheer.
I also found this cheer special from CNN on Maddie Gardner
