True Story Tuesday

Another Tuesday...Another True Story!!!

So most of you know that last week was WCHS's homecoming...and for those of you that didn't know...last week was WCHS's homecoming!!! (the school where my hubby teaches and coaches!!)

So anywho
...last Wednesday was the girls powder puff game.
Now you may be asking...what's a powder puff game?!

This is a game where GIRLS play football...gasp...GIRLS.PLAY.FOOTBALL.
Yep...that's right football, not tackle football...flag football, but football none the less!

The game is usually between the Senior girls vs. the Junior girls

They get to play on the varsity field under the lights and everything!!!


Ryan and another varsity coach were the referees for the game

Going over the rules of the game and the coin toss.

The Seniors are in blue and the Juniors are in yellow

It was actually a pretty good game with lots of passing and TDs!! There were also a lot of interceptions!

So you are probably thinking...what's so special about this...and if you weren't thinking that... I am sure you are thinking that now....RIGHT??!!!

Well...here's where it gets kinda funny, OR where I think it gets kinda funny!!!!

There were also cheerleaders for the game and if the girls are playing football...then who is cheering???....

The varsity football players of course!!!

They danced, they wiggled, they kicked, they jumped...just like real cheerleaders...

...they even did some stunts with flying and everything!!!

Now mind you, the coaches were not too amused that their players dressed up in those outfits doing a dance in front of a crowd and then preform their routine twice more for the pep rallies on Friday, but underneath their looks of disgust and eye rolls...there were a few giggles!!!

And when it was all said and done...the Seniors came away with the V.I.C.T.O.R.Y. and a fun time was had by all!!!

The powder puff game was always a hit at my school. I never got to play because I had my tonsils removed just prior to the game my junior year and then I had my wisdom teeth removed just prior to my senior year.

I love the guys as cheerleaders!

Oh wow. I had no idea girls played flag football on a school team. How fun! The boy cheerleaders are hysterical! They clearly have a good sense of humor.

Rachel said...

That looks like so much fun! I wasn't allowed to play powder puff... I guess they want you to be bigger than a buck and a quarter for it, LOL.

Those cheerleaders were gutsy! Though I'm a little worried about what looks like pantyhose on one?!? :)

Great post and pictures!

Lisa said...

Fun, fun, fun! I remember having that game in high school. Us tennis players were threatened within an inch of our lives if anyone got injured in the powder puff game. Fun times! :)
