Here’s an actual job posting for an actual cheerleader position with the Anaheim Angels of Los Angeles, Inc. Props to the authors of this job description for doing everything but coming right out and saying “thou shalt be a piece of arse, shaking what God gave ye while Vladimir Guerrero finds his sunglasses in the dugout.” Note clever use of such key terminology as “cheerleader-like,” as found in my favorite sentence, “Must also be comfortable wearing cheerleader-like attire.” Hey, who shouldn’t be?
Anyway, if anyone out there’s looking for a job and longs for milder climes, consider this another public service effort from your pals at SG.
