Who doesn't like cheerleaders? Who wouldn't feel a tad incomplete if the March Madness experience didn't include smiling faces and pom-pom waving and leg-kicks that defy the laws of physics?
It's not only awesome, it's a necessity: We need Cinderella stories, a 12-over-5 upset, and the sounds of pep bands blaring music while beautiful coeds play to CBS' cameras before and after commercials.
The formula's proven. The sights and sounds and sex appeal of this ever-so-righteous month of basketball wouldn't be complete without cheerleaders. So, of course, B/R needs to pay homage.
These are actual cheerleaders from this year's March Madness. Really – this year's. No old, recycled photo from a Google search of a woman whose now 27, working in accounting, and hasn't stepped foot on campus in five years. No borrowing from a blog who borrowed it from another blog who stole it off MySpace in 2005.
Nope, all 2012, all within the last month. You may have seen them on ESPN during the conference tourneys, and you may see them in the upcoming weeks of the NCAA tournament. Regardless, they represent one of our favorite things about the madness of this month.
