In the late 1870s the Princeton University football team (the Tigers) had a male pep squad that sat in the stands and supported them with chants of “Ray, ray, ray! Tiger, tiger, sis, sis, sis! Boom, boom, boom! Aaaah! Princeton, Princeton, Princeton!” But it wasn’t until 1884, when football was introduced at the University of Minnesota, that a student named Johnny Campbell became the world’s first cheerleader: He got up in front of a crowd and urged them to chant “Rah, rah, rah.” As college football spread in the early 20th century, cheerleading spread, too. The first female cheerleaders hit the sidelines in 1927 at Marquette University. Paper pom-pons were introduced in the 1930s.

I did horribly today! In fact, you could say I got crap! T or C is the only one I got. The closest I came on any of the others was 2x3 on business cards. I knew darned well where Andrew's Airforce Base is, but for some reason got it confused with Nellis and said Nevada.
