Cheer Chants – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Cheers

Cheer Chants – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS – Cheers

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 30/18

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “cheers.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

***

So, the first thing that most probably everyone thought of with the prompt of ‘cheers’, is the TV show called, “Cheers”.

I thought of it too, but I’m sure I’m in the minority, and going against the grain, by saying I never did like that show. I watched a few of them, and didn’t see the appeal. First, I wasn’t crazy about the actors, or the characters they played. That it was set in a bar, wasn’t my favorite setting, either. I’ve been down the drinking, partying road many years ago, and don’t care to do it any more. Wasn’t much fun then, and I can’t imagine it being fun now.

Now…

What I really want to talk about is this…Cheer-leading.

Yes, once upon a time I tried out for being a cheer leader at school, but being non-athletic, and uncoordinated, I didn’t make it. (hah!)

However, my daughter did. She began her cheer-leading activities in kindergarten…for their little soccer team. She had an official uniform, and learned a lot of cheers. She still has that uniform…it’s so tiny! Her own daughter can wear it now. She still has all her uniforms, as we had to buy each one (and they are not cheap!)

Later, she cheered every year in middle school, and also in high school. There were many uniforms…all cute, and different ones for each season.

The cheer squad in all of these were very hard working girls. They were very much working at their cheering and stunts, and very dedicated (not just playing around).

She learned lots of cheer chants, too.

Here’s a couple I remember from hearing them at my old school, whose mascot was the Matadors.

“Thunder, thunder…thunderation

We’re the Matador delegation

When we fight with determination

We create a sensation!”

***

“Two bits, four bits, six bits a dollar

All for the Matadors, stand up and holler”

***

I used to know them all, from hearing them so many times, but now have forgotten. They were all catchy and fun.

Do you remember any cheer chants from your school days?

FRIENDLY FILL-INS

FRIENDLY FILL-INS

https://mcguffysreader.blogspot.com/2017/08/friendly-fill-ins-week-67.html

***

Here are the fill-ins:

  1. If someone were visiting my area, I would recommend a visit to _________________________.
  2. My favorite room in my home is ____________________________.
  3. Back-to-school time makes me think of _____________________.
  4. My favourite year of school was ________, because __________.

***

  1. If you were new to this area, I would suggest visiting the Buddy Holly Center. It is on the edge of the down town district. There are lots of Buddy Holly’s personal items, and really good informational things to read about his life and legend. There is also a gift shop, where you can buy souvenirs of all kinds.
  2. My favorite room here is the living room. This where I have my computer, in one corner, so I spend most of my time here. I can also look out the back door and see the cats we feed out there, and also the hanging bird feeder where cute birds come to eat.
  3. Back to school time reminds me of all the new school supplies. I love all kinds of things for school, and office, even today. I can’t resist getting some new spirals, or pens, and markers.
  4. My favorite year of school was in elementary classes, every year at Halloween time. Our school always put on a carnival. Every room had  different things to do, such as games to win prizes, food to eat, and everyone wore their costumes. The room mothers helped out. One year my mom was all dressed up as a gypsy fortune teller, and had a little booth. My cousins, aunt, and I also made things for giving away as prizes, which was fun. We made plaster of Paris figures/plaques, that we’d paint. They always turned out really good.
