TELEVISION MADE FOR MEN

I have a terrible confession to make. I
watch XFL football.
It all started when I was forced to
watch it when hanging out with some
guy friends. I'm used to having to watch
"Jackass." "O4z" "The Sopranos" and
excessive sporting events with them. so,
of course, when the XFL was introduced.
we just had to watch it.
And while my male friends appreciate
the fbotball on the field they seem 'to
appreciate the league's cheerleaders even
more.
I'll refrain from a rant on the terrible

objectification of these women, and
instead just laugh at how easily the aver-
age male is entertained.
I remember watching another show
with a large male following, Comedy
Central's "The Man Show" and seeing
how enthralled my male friends were by
the fact that a guy could bite into a beer
can with his teeth and guzzle its con-
tents while holding it in his teeth.
They were also equally amused by the
many skimply-clad dancing females that
they dare to call the Juggy Dance Squad.
For people not familiar with these

women, they're
the chicks who
have a habit of
jumping on tram-
pol ines.
. Thus, all objec-
tification and
laughing aside,
I'll attempt to
briefly remove
my claws for the
ultimate "Battle
of the XFL
Cheerleaders vs.
The Man Show
Juggy Squad."

Dancing:
The XFL cheerleaders tend to have
choreographed dances and stay more or
less in sync with the rest of their squad
consisting of about 20 cheerleaders. The
Juggies, as they're affectionately known.
are more of free-style dancing troupe.
Although very disorganized. the Juggies
have poles installed throughout their set
which they sometimes swing on, giving
them a boost.
Advantage: Even
Costumes:
XFL cheerleader uniforms are gener-
ally a two-piece concoction that barely
cover the girls. Juggies have been seen

wearing anything from milk and cookies
to German fru-fru outfits. While the
cheerleaders are consistently more scant-
ily clad. the variety of the Juggy costumes
makes the the superior choice.
Advantage: Juggies
Cleavage:
This isn't even a contest. In the first
two XFL games I watched, it was hard to
remember the cheerleaders' faces due to
the excessive amount of cleavage dis-
played. As this seemed to be the main
focus of the cameras, I think most other
people had the same difficulty I had.
Advantage: XFL cheerleaders
Beauty:
This one was initially hard to judge
because cleavage got in the wa of'seeinu
the entire XFL cheerleader. Based on the
website pictures of each XFL teams
cheerleaders (some, are sans clca\age)
they j (st don t seem to look as good.
Advantage: Juges
Personal A ppeal:
I arch show his a -pecial prt of the
slc\tv here either a c eerleader or a
Juggy is introduced. The cheerleaders are
introduced as an XFL cheerleader by
night and some other profession by day. I
never remember my kindergarten teacher
looking like that.
"The Man Show" picks a Juggy of the
Month who's showcased on their website.
and interviewed on the show. Juggies also
distribute beer. participate in sketches
and of course. bounce on trampolines.
Advantage: Juggies
And the winner is:
Cleavage aside. the XFL Cheerleaders
really had nothing on the "The Man
Show" Juggies. The choice is obvious.

While some people spend their
spring breaks relaxing in tropical par-
adises, basking in the rays of the sun
and sipping drinks twith parasols in
them, some of us end up spending our
vacation sitting on the couch, subsist-
ing on a diet of popsicles and flipping
between "'Animal Planet" and Fox's
"Police Videos." Not that there's any-
thing wrong with that, but the back-
bone of any good lazy break is a solid
stash of movies. So, to ease the pain ol
the non-vacation, here is a list of films
that will ensure that this spring break
liveS on in your memories, forever.
Okay, not reall}.
"ombstone (1993)-This account

of the struggle between the Earp broth-
ers and the infamous "Cowboy" gang is
one of the best Westerns of the recent
past. It is also the crown jewel of Val
Kilmer's career (apologies to the
Iceman). Ihis scene stealing portrayal
of gambler and gunfighter Doc
holiday is fantastic, and a solid cast
(including Kurt Russell and Sam
Iliot) makes this film a must-see.
"The Last of the Mohicans" (1993)
- Patriot. Shmatriot. This epic story of'
war, love and death, taking place dur-
ing the French and Indian War, is a
truly great film. Daniel Day Lewis's
commanding portrayal of llawkeye.
adopted son of a Mohican. gives the
movie its center, but it is completed by
an equally excellent suppolrting cast
and a chilling and memorable sound-

track. The last action sequence on the
mountain is one of my favorite scenes
ever.
"Z" (1969) - This film about the
overthrow of the democratic govern-
ment in Greece is a first-rate thriller
about assassination, conspiracy and the
quest for the truth. When the right-
wing military forces of the government
try to cover up their assassination of the
democratic candidate, the Prosecutor
must try to uncover what really tran-
spired. Although made by a Greek
director, the film is in French.
