You've all heard of the USO. This isn't about them. But we have a lot of U.S. military here in Jordan and yesterday the MAP (Military Assistance Program) brought a little cheer to the troupes. Get it? Cheer? It's a punny sort of thing. Six Redskins cheerleaders (no longer the Redskinettes, but rather the First Ladies of Cheer... again with the double meanings! First Ladies for Washington D.C. but also that the Redskins cheer squad was the first professional football cheer squad) and two former football players stopped by the Embassy for a bit to say hello, talk to the kids, and show off some skills. They were at the Embassy earlier in the day as well to watch the Superbowl in the Oasis Club with whoever was crazy enough to get up at 2 a.m. and watch a football game. My 3rd child actually did get up and watch the game, but he stayed at home to do it.
All the kids received photo sheets and went around gathering signatures as well as photo ops with a little one-on-one chatting.
High energy and a lot of booty shaking going on.
