Redskins Cheerleaders Continue to Dominate

The Post has already written the full story of the Redskins cheerleaders' invasion of Indian cricket, but the Indian press keeps this story churning. As the Indo-Asian News Service put it,

The svelte Washington Redskin Cheerleaders, who have created more than a stir with their presence in the Indian Premier League (IPL), will leave behind a bunch of girls trained by them to set up a permanent presence here.

Please, let's make the official name "The Svelte Washington Redskin Cheerleaders." Happily, cricket fans have treated all the new cheerleaders, not just those from D.C., with respect befitting their stature.

"It's been horrendous," Tabitha, a cheerleader from Uzbekistan, told the Hindustan Times.

"Wherever we go we do expect people to pass lewd, snide remarks but I'm shocked by the nature and magnitude of the comments people pass here."

Actually, I didn't realize Tabitha was a common Uzbeki name. The country's leaders, meanwhile, have embraced the concept of scantily clad on-field entertainment.

"What the cheerleaders are doing during cricket matches is ten times more vulgar than what used to happen in dance bars of Mumbai," Nitin Gadkari, leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Maharashtra, home to the Mumbai Indians.

The BJP is India's main opposition party, which was part of a coalition which banned popular bars in Mumbai where girls would dance on stage to Bollywood tunes.

"If we could ban dance bars, how can we allow such vulgar dance in a cricket field. I am getting huge complaints and cheerleaders must be banned immediately from entering a cricket field," Gadkari said.

Bah. Next thing you know they'll want to ban beer, lewd chants, fistfights, players who spend the entire offseason in strip clubs and Mel Kiper.

Useless without video of Redskins cheerleaders dancing to Indian-style music? Here ya go.
