There's Only One Indestructible Cheerleader

According to the National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injury Research (yes, that is an awesome name for a research center), cheerleaders see more than their fair share of injuries. A lot more.

The center found that two thirds of severe sports injuries to females happened to cheerleaders. The researchers cited an increase in the number of gymnastic stunts used in cheerleading, and took a swipe at coaches who they felt were not "competent."

There is no news about the number of severe injuries to females who are engaging in sexual role-playing as cheerleaders.
