For the past week, I was on an adventure that was absolutely life-changing. The anticipation before I left, setting out on my own, to represent the New York Jets Flight Crew Cheerleaders for the best players in the National Football League, was intense. I knew what an honor it was, and I knew I was going to meet some amazing people.
What I didn't know was what it felt like to join forces with the most incredible women around the country, all representing their teams with the most devoted passion. The work ethic of the cheerleaders across the league is astounding. As we do here at the Jets, they dedicate themselves to the organization and put in so much effort into performing their hearts out for all of the wonderful fans! There is no way to put into words how thankful and honored I was to wake up each day, knowing there was a new experience ahead and another opportunity to wear my green and white.
Although the AFC fell short on gameday, being present for a game filled with the most impressive talent across the NFL is definitely a win in itself! It is the most-watched all-star game in sports. It's great to see these players come together, the best of the best with their families in the stands in celebration of the previous season. I also think it is a great way for fans to meet their favorite players as they interact on gameday along with the events in the days prior.
Between hours of practice, charity events and media/performance appearances around town, I made memories and true friends that will last a lifetime. This year was the 20th anniversary of the Pro Bowl Cheerleaders and that is remarkable!
Thank you for following along on my journey. I take so much pride in this team and, of course, this great city of New York!
Here's to the 2013 season, Go JETS!
