2009 Pro Bowl Cheerleader Representative: The Colts 

Posted by Midwest Dave at 6:00 AM ET

Congratulations to Shonica, who was named the Pro Bowl Cheerleader at the Colts-Lions game on the 14th of December!

It was holiday uniform game for the Colts>Cheerleaders, and as the squad lined up at midfield prior to their pre-game routine, I noticed mascot Blue emerging from the tunnel with a lei in his hands as he rode around the field in a scooter. Hmm, perhaps the Colts Pro Bowl Cheerleader would be announced, and that would be a cool, unexpected pleasure since the Colts were one of the last teams to name their participant last year. Last season, Krystal was named at the final game of the season, right before New Year's Day. But as Blue stepped off his scooter with the lei, and it was announced that he would be going to Hawaii to represent the mascots. Maybe this is why he was carrying around that lei, and the Cheerleader suspense would continue. But hey, that lei could never fit around that huge snout of his! Then, they showed Shonica on the big screen and Ashlii and others congratulated her on being named Pro Bowl Cheerleader.

And what a deserving representative! After cheering in college, Shonica cheered for the Charlotte Bobcats of the NBA for two years, in addition to four years in the Arena Football League. Shonica is in her third season with the Colts squad and one of the line captains. Her dedication is recognized with a well deserved Hawaii trip, especially nice given it is unlikely that Indianapolis will be sun-bathing weather during the Pro Bowl. Congratulations Shonica and enjoy!
