Redskins BeachBlitz - Saturday 

Posted by James at 7:07 AM ET

Virginia Beach had perfect weather on Saturday for Day Two of Redskins Beachblitz. More players, more activities, more food, and of course, more Cheerleaders.

It's loyal blog reader Rebecca Mejia (WRC '04-'07) and her producer Josh. Rebecca's a rising star at Redskins.com TV; she was in town covering all the action at Beachblitz.

Back at the Convention Center, Melanie Treanor was selling Cheerleader merchandise. She gave me a look at some of the photos from the Cheerleaders' calendar shoot. Lots of hot swimsuits and body paint. I'm looking forward to the release of the calendar in July.

After three Cheerleading Clinics and three autograph sessions, Anna and Anabel still give us a smile.

This guy was a push-up machine. He didn't even slow down when Katie sat on his back.

Beachblitz was much better organized this year. The space was increased for the Football Challenge. The addition of the Pep Rally was a good move. Kudos to the Redskins organization for putting on a great event. I'm already looking forward to Beachblitz 2008!


And now for something new. I took my little digital camera and put it in video mode. Here's a short clip of Anabel and Anna at the Cheerleading Clinic.



I've got some footage of some of the performances, but right now they are too large to upload to YouTube.
