Want to shake it for the Redskins?
Then you had better practice your moves today, because auditions to be a Redskins cheerleader start tomorrow. The requirements are deceptively simple for what’s gotta be a hard (if not the most mentally stimulating) job – be 18, in good health (ahem), have your own transportation, a high school diploma or GED and be either in school full-time, employed at least part-time, or “have a family.”
Don’t count on the gig to pay for those implants, though – the $75 per game they pay doesn’t stretch far. It’s probably not a good way to get close to that player you’ve had the hots for either. Officially at least, fraternization is forbidden and violating that rule will get you canned.
As far as the rest of us, April 8th is the day to pencil into your day planner. That’s the final day of auditions, which are open to the public and at the Tyson’s Corner Center. Don’t forget your bib.
