Madame had her first cheering competition on Saturday, I think she was nervous, I know I was for her. We had to get up at 5 am just to make it many towns away and boy! I thought the elementary band was loud!!!! It's nothing compared to this cheering music dubbed with many songs and many sound effects like ricocheting gunshots, deafening....especially if you have never been to one before and you foolishly sit by the speaker.I must say I was very impressed right away, of course the Maine state all-stars opened the show and they were fabulous! Throwing the high fliers around and spinning them in the air, cool! I can see why cheering has the most injuries of all sports, those girls are very serious, so serious that I'd never seen so many hair pieces and ribbons in one place before. You could tell who had done this since birth, they gave the expressions that entertained and amused.
Madame was tired after the show as was I. Four hours on the bleachers was more than I could stand, the place was wall to wall people and I had to go pee!
