Cheerleader’s Tweets… Tackled

Standard

2 – 4 – 6 – 8 This topic doesn’t exactly relate… but I figure the Dallas Cowboys are close enough to the real thing.

During the football on Thanksgiving Thursday, Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader, Melissa Kellerman’s pom poms were in Jason Wittman’s path.  The 265 pound player collided with Kellerman.  I’m just guessing that the belly shirt and and go go boots didn’t provide the same kind of protection football pads do.  But, there must be something to those cheerleading workouts, because Wittman helped her up, she dusted it off, and laughed like a champ.

The real ruckus came a day later when Kellerman tweeted two statements.

  • “Not hurtin’ today, like some of y’all thought I would be! Our TE isn’t as tough as he looks… That or I’m WAY tougher than I look. 😉  “
  • “I’m not the best at Jason Witten trust falls ;)”

Cute, classy, and if you ask me, great PR for the Cowboys.  Rumor has it that  the Cowboys corporation thinks otherwise and forced Kellerman to delete her Twitter account.  They are denying it now, assuming because of the publics reaction.  What, beautiful, twiggy, cheerleaders are only supposed to be a face for the sport and never a voice?  Especially for such a well-known squad (with their own TV show), it surprises me that they wouldn’t want Kellerman to speak about the event.  If they wanted the incident to just fade away, it would have within a day or two.  But, instead they stifled her right to react in 140 characters or less, and have their own explaining to do.
