Deep South, meet Deep Freeze!
Last night at E.B. Green's in the Hyatt, Buzz met a lady and gentleman from Mississippi who are here to judge Cheersport, the giant cheerleading competition taking place Saturday at the Buffalo Convention Center.
They are Niel Parker and Cheryl Farris and while they are used to judging summery competitions like the one pictured above, now they are up here in the Arctic. They confessed that just the thought of flying to Buffalo had made them shiver.
"We were afraid our plane would land on ice," Cheryl said.
Niel added candidly: "We were hoping our flight would be canceled."
But they fell in love with Buffalo! "The people are so friendly," they said, and proceeded to list all the friends they had made, from the pilot of the plane up through the staffers at the Hyatt, whom they reeled off by name. They had tickets to "Wicked" tonight at Shea's.
Niel and Cheryl are encouraging Buffalonians to come out and watch the cheerleading competition. The Convention Center site says admission is $10 with kids under 10 admitted free. It sounds like quite a show. There are about a zillion cheerleaders from all over the state and beyond. And the judges say come late, because the competition gets more advanced as the day wears on.
Cheerleaders converging on the Convention Center, what fun.
Let's go, Buffalo!
