The Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders are the world’s most famous cheerleading squad. Not just in the NFL, but the entire world; including NBA dance teams, college football and college basketball. The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, or “America’s Sweethearts,” as they’re known in Texas, are a group with a more stringent selection process than Princeton University.

Well, mathematically speaking anyway.

Princeton admissions has a 11% acceptance rate. (Yes I knew that BEFORE the Tina Fey Paul Rudd movie came out) The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders had 2,400 girls try out for 34 spots. Yes, you were told that there would be no math in this post. And given the intro picture of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, who wants to think about math.

We finally have the match-up set for the 2010 NFL Championship. The Green Bay Packers will meet the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl 45.

They’ll battle in Arlington, Texas at Cowboys Stadium a.k.a. “Jerry’s World,” “The House that Jerry Built,” “DeathStar,” “Boss Hog Bowl,” “Jones Town,” and “Jones-Mahal.”

I was fortunate enough to get this behind the scenes tour as part of the Nike Football Media Summit 2010, a phenomenal event and product rollout taking place on the famous new field in Dallas.
