Following the advent of football
season and the recent commercial
success of the movie "Bring It On,"
cheerleading seems to be on the pub-
lic consciousness. Male participants,
in particular, must deal with many of
the stereotypes associated with
cheerleaders. Weekend, Etc. editor
Jenni Glenn took the opportunity to
chat with third-near cheerleader Joe
Paunovich about the challenges fac-
ing men in his sport. 4
The Michigan Daily: How did
you get involved in cheerleading?
JP: My freshman year I wanted to
learn how to do gymnastics and that
type of thing. It ended up being a lot
of fun, so I stuck with it.
TMD: How did your friends react
when you told them you were joining
the cheerleading squad?
JP: It's not something that's like a
typical male sport, I guess, so some of
them thought that it was funny or won-
dered why the heck I was doing it.
TMD: And why was that?
JP: Basically, the type of guys that
are involved in it are from similar
backgrounds to me, so it's a lot of
TMD: What is a typical practice
JP: We'd probably do anywhere
from a half hour to 45 minutes of
passes and stuff like that. Partner
stunts, basic gymnastics... We
would go over cheers and stuff to
make sure we're ready for the games.
TMD: What is your favorite part

of being on the team?
JP: Getting to go to bowl games.
basketball tournaments, just travel-
ing, getting the opportunity to meet
many people.
TMD: What is the biggest chal-
lenge of being a cheerleader?
JP: It's a much more athletic sport
than I had originally thought when I
got involved in cheerleadin. I
thought within a week I'd be able to
do everything there was. There's a lot
more to it in terms of balance and
TMD: What do you think of the
JP: I would probably choose alter-
nate uniforms if I had the choice, but
it's pretty traditional. The guys don't
really care for the short shorts and
polyester in general, but if you're
going to be a cheerleader, that's part
of the gig. If they told us we could
wear warm up pants and a sweat-
shirt, we would, but I don't think it's
happening any time soon.
TMD: How do you feel about
media portrayals of cheerleaders,
like in the recent movie "Bring It
JP: I think it was a very poor por-
traval of cheerleading in general. ...
Cheerleaders are some of the nicest
athletes; we're supposed to be
cheery. A lot of the stereotypes came
out, like sleeping around. I don't
think any of that's really true. We're
just normal people without any of
the quirks or whatever.
