It's in the Genes 

Posted by Sasha at 9:00 PM ET

I've received a lot of updates for this list, so scroll down and take a gander and the new stuff. Thanks so much everyone - and keep 'em coming!

We've posted various things around the blog around siblings who've cheered/danced professionally. With the addition of three Bell sisters on the Philadelphia Eagles squad (the first time any squad has had three sisters from the same family at the same time), I think it's time to make this an official PCB feature. I've broken this into three categories, which include performers from the present, the recent past, and the not-so recent past.

If you think of any names to add or if you have corrections or photos of anyone mentioned, drop us a line at sasha@procheerleaderblog.com or james@procheerleaderblog.com.
