    If you were going to talk about the history of cheer, what are some interesting cornerstone moments you have to include?

    Namely:


    — the founding of UCA/NCA/etc
    — Wanda Holloway
    — BSB’s all time high score
    — the first worlds
    — slip n slide worlds
    — cancelled worlds
    — “co-champions”

    Etc.

    Are there any huge upsets or scandals you’d have to include?

    Didn't someone break the large senior curse recently? Clearly my cheer memory is failing. I'd consider that a big one.

    *Matgate.
    *BSB shattering my heart in finals.
    *Santwon and that split pass on TGLC.
    *Panthers curse break.
    *WCSS comeback at Worlds in 2019 was pretty cool following a rocky season.
    *That period of time when Juniors competed at Worlds.
    *The intro year for NT and those first winners! (Lady Lux and Code Black.)
    *The intro year for XS6 and those first winners (Cheerville Anarchy and Miss Silver I think?)

    THIS. 2015 in particular broke my heart because of the amazing season full of 99s they had and because of how the fall happened.

    Are there any incidents that really forced any change? Does anyone know where I can get the first safety rules made, ever?

    ETA: I’m trying to do a really approachable, irreverent yet affectionate take on cheer history. I think it’d be funny to do a then vs now take on safety rules.

    Not sure there was an incident that forced it and it is not a safety thing but:

    There was some fuss made when crop tops became SENIORS ONLY.

    I do not recall the year. 2015? 2014?

    Again not safety but:

    I ALSO AM NOT SURE I HAVE EVER GOTTEN OVER NO MORE ACTUAL SONGS IN MUSIC RULE.

    I believe the first season for that was 16/17? Every year when I hear some of these mixes I miss it even more.

    I do not recall the incident or situation that started it but I believe an artist complained about not receiving $ for the uses?

    Has anyone else read the book Cheer by Kate Torgovnick? I’m pretty impressed actually.

    Its twelve years old, but it’s portentous in its early mentions of Navarro and TVCC.

    Aldo, what was that terrible book that AS girl published?

    What was this? YT comment sections are not giving me insight.
