TMZ reports that after seeing the above YouTube video of Michael Jackson's daughter Paris cheering for her California high school, the Philadelphia Eagles cheerleading squad has showed interest in the King of Pop's 14-year-old daughter. Barbara Zaun the Director of Cheerleading for the Eagles tells TMZ that "We think Paris will make a great Eagle cheerleader!" Zaun further gushed "she is already very comfortable in the limelight, so we think she would definitely stand out and impress the judges ... We hope that she will try out for the team and be an Eagles cheerleader!"
Not sure why Zaun is making such a fuss since the Eagles require their cheerleaders to be at least 18-years-old and have a high school diploma.
Lauren Silberman became the first woman to tryout for NFL on Sunday. Silberman is 28 years old and is trying out for the New York Jets as a place kicker. In her first kickoff attempt, from the 35-yard line, the football traveled 19 yards. Silberman's second attempt (above video), went just 13 yards. Silberman aggravated her right quadriceps and was done after just those two kicks. She had one more kickoff and five field goal attempts remaining for her tryout at the combine.
Silberman paid the $275 fee to register for the tryout at a regional combine for the NY Jets in Florham Park, New Jersey. The NFL allows anybody to register for the combines.
