No Ice Girls
This is, apparently, not breaking news, but regardless, I'm here to tell you that there will be no ice-based cheer persons at Caps games this season. From PR guy Nate Ewell:
"It's something that we've looked at and we're still looking at. Obviously it's something that creates strong feelings, pro and con, so we're still trying to evaluate whether it would be a positive thing for our fans in the long run. We weren't confident at this point that it was a good idea. If we do it, we're going to do it right."
The Caps will thus remain the only team in the Southeast Division without ice-based cheer persons. The idea is still on the table for the '08-'09 season, but again, nothing has been decided. This could turn out to be like the red-white-and-blue color change (took years), or the WaPo Sunday Style-Sunday Arts merger (took years), or the name change from Wizards back to Bullets (good luck).
For the record, I'm pro-in-game-entertainment, anti-in-game-distractions, pro-full-time-cheering and anti-sexual exploitation, so take that for what it's worth.
