Cheer Chants – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS – Cheers
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.
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.
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?
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
