|Does "National" really mean National??|
Over the years, I've noticed that there have been many, many Laredo cheer leading teams who have been know to win "National Champions". Just this week, the Laredo City Council spent more than a few minutes to honor another elementary cheer leading team winning the apparently coveted award. How can Laredo win so often? I mean we're not talking regional or state champions we're talking "National Champions". Well, as it turns out, there's this company who makes their money by holding cheer leading competitions all year long. Furthermore, the word "National" is very prominent in their name.
So, the question is this: Are the winners at this company's competitions really National champions as in champions of the entire United States, or are they the champions of competitions sponsored by the company named "National"? I know Laredo loves its cheerleaders but I think this is a very fair question. After all, these girls spend many, many hours perfecting their routines and they, more than anyone else, deserve to know what these awards they've been winning really mean. So, if anybody out there know the answer, please let us know. A la bim, a la bam, a bim bom bam !!
