"I Don't Care About the Weather. I Just Want Our Team to do Well." 

Posted by James at 6:50 AM ET

At the Eagles Pro Shop at Lincoln Financial Field on Monday a fan wished that Eagles Cheerleader Kjersti would have better cheering weather for the team's last home game.

Her response echoing the Eagles Cheerleaders combination of beauty and toughness, "I don't care about the weather. I just want our team to do well."

Second-year veteran Kjersti is a junior at the University of the Arts where she is majoring in Jazz Dance. She's performed at the 1996 and 2000 Summer Olympics and the 9-11 Benefit Concert. Originally, her plans after graduation involved Broadway, but lately she's been thinking about other options: Cruise Lines, Vegas, Disney in the US and Japan.

Danielle and Kjersti were the first shift of Cheerleaders for the WIP-AM remote broadcast Monday Afternoon from the Linc.

Danielle is a triple threat. We already told you she was on the AIFA Reading Express Smokin' Hot Steam Team. She was also a member of the of the NAFL Reading Raptors Cheerleaders along with current Sixers Dancer Vi (pronounced Vee).

Second shift on Monday afternoon: it's Maria and Rachel.

Maria is a Jazz Dance Major at the University of the Arts. She's looking into pursuing a Masters Degree in Dance at Temple.

Women aren't allowed to serve in the Special Forces, but next summer Drexel Student and ROTC cadet Rachel may be one of the first women to attend Sapper School. A sapper, in the sense first used by the French military, was one who sapped another's fortifications. Readers might be more familiar with the term Combat Engineering and all the it entails: clearing of minefields, fortification, bridge and road construction or destruction, neutralizing IEDs, destruction of the enemy's infrastructure and other engineering tasks under fire.

Saturday Cheerleaders Victoria and Lora were on hand for the Eagles Pep Rally at the 7-11 on Rt 202 in New Britain. Remember when 7-11s were actually open from 7 to 11?


Eagles Cheerleaders
Chatting with Victoria and Lora we learned a little about how the Eagles Pro Bowl Cheerleader is selected. A few years ago the decision was made by a vote of the cheerleaders. Now it's a much more involved process with interviews and video submissions. Victoria won't be going; the Pro Bowl is during her senior semester at Temple. The Dance major can't afford can't to miss a week of school.


Eagles Cheerleaders
Lora won't be going to the Pro Bowl either. As you might imagine being an Eagles Cheerleader takes her away from her job in Event Management quite a lot. Between the calendar shoot in Mexico and other appearances, she really can't get away from work for the whole week of Pro Bowl events.

Friday night the Bud Light Party was at Tir Na nog Irish Bar & Grill in Center City.

The bar was pretty loud. so we didn't get a chance to speak with Dance Captain Amanda.
