Not to beat a dead horse, but is cheerleading really all that different than other sports or am I just different? People ask me all the time why I watch cheer videos so much, or why I have cheer music on my iPod. Do any of the other sports go on youtube and watch their favorite teams? Is it that much different than watching college football on saturdays? Because when I try to explain why everyone thinks I'm crazy. Is it strange that I can name a gym from almost every state? Because if I mention a gym from across the country people are like, "oh, so if your not on their team how do you know about them?" When I explain I am called obsessive (which I am, but that's not the point), can't football fans name a team from most states? I guess what I am getting at is this: Why is cheer viewed so differently, and how can I explain it to help people understand.
