The Blue Lightning are the Winnipeg Blue Bombers' cheerleading squad, and today we get photos of them at play in and out of uniform. Below are a few of the uniform-related ones; Don Chavez (of course) has a full gallery that reaches into what appear to be non-team-related events.
Notably, the wild-eyed and -haired blonde above is none other than their "highly affable" coach, Dena Clark. Her profile on the Blue Bombers' website includes an uplifting mission statement for her team:
“This is such a wonderful group of women,” Clark proudly stated when asked about her decision to return as coach for her third season… “I get to lead a group of young women on a path of positive thinking, healthy living, and athletic training. I am also in a position to help redefine the stereotype that is currently out there about cheerleaders… I take my job very seriously and look forward to the challenge of helping the general public see these women as the multi-talented group they are instead of a series of body parts on display”.
In that regard, candids of them reading to underprivileged kids might have been better than thong-grabbing and ass-smacking. Not that I'm complaining.
