Gauntlet thrown: Argos cheerleaders video

Boat… Women?! The Argos cheerleaders put together a music video — and it’s good
Kurtis Larson canoe blog March 7, 2014

Just call them the Boatwomen.

The Toronto Argo cheerleaders put together a fun music video to the high-energy tunes Nicki Minaj.

And, it’s actually pretty entertaining.

During their recent trip to Puerto Rico, St. Thomas and St. Maarten aboard the Celebrity Reflection, the girls took time out of their CFL calendar shoot to entertain us with this beauty

The clip currently has around 16,000 clicks. Expect that to rise – sharply.

Chances of the Boatmen topping this during their upcoming season?

Remote.

This is the only good ... great ... amazing thing that The Blew Team has ever done!

Can I be a fan of their Cheerleaders yet despise the team they cheer for? I sure hope so!

While I am not a fan of the team, I am for anything that will increase the profile and brand of the Argos in the CFL and the city of Toronto, they need some good news because they operate in a hostile marketplace with the media (save TSN) and just about everyone else conspiring against them. The TiCats need the Argos to be strong (off the field)

Apparently this video made Sports Illustrated.com

Now, Kitty Cats, or Pussy Cats (oops that's kinda rude), do the TiCat cheerleaders have a nickname? Whatya gonna do when the Argo cheerleaders run wild on you? This video requires a full retaliatory response! :slight_smile:

But please with less annoying "music"

I once had a guy (at a Ticat game) who wanted to clock me because I bought some playing cards from the Argo cheerleaders. LOL

I'm getting old but now I remember why I love the CFL. :thup:

Pay close attention to the lyrics and it all starts to make sense: you'd have to be "higher than a [blank]" to cheer for the blue team.

Don't wanna pay attention to the lyrics. That "music" is icky.

Reminds me of one Labour Day game at Ivor Wynne and at one point the Argos cheerleaders got introduced and ran out onto the field to largely a chorus of boos. Then they did this great sort of tease dance routine to the song 'I Kissed a Girl' and the crowd when wild. That was one way to win cheers from Ti-Cats' fans. lol

One hell of a lot better looking than those ugly Boatmen. :cowboy:

I was on that cruise through the Caribbean with them (plus Owens, Milanovich and Ray) back in February.

I can't believe they didn't include a shot of me with my Ticats shirt on....

Very nice ladies, despite cheering for the Blue Team.

Cheers,

Mark

It reminds me of what ex-Beatle the late great George Harrison said once in an interview when asked what he thought of the Spice Girls......his answer.....At least you can mute the sound and just look at them. :slight_smile: :thup:

Unfortunately the Ticats won't "respond" to this. Our girls don't seem to be much of priority for those in charge.
Sadly I have to agree that the Blue team does it right in promoting and supporting their cheerleaders.

The Ticats Cheerleaders are hands down the best in the league and don't need to do promotional videos like that to be impressive.

Cheer up T.O. - You've got the Argos
Mike Strobel Toronto Sun March 30, 2014

You have to laugh at how we’re “the city of losers,? just because of the Leafs’ latest swoon.

Pundits, including Toronto Sun colleagues, point also to last year’s painful Blue Jays season and the long-term mediocrity — could this finally be the year? — of the Raptors and TFC.

There’s even a high school course on the art of losing in Toronto sports.

Well, what are the Argonauts, chopped liver?

We keep forgetting about those guys. Those — shudder! — winners.

They are one year removed from a Grey Cup and have won six since the Leafs embraced Lord Stanley’s mug.

On Sunday, I helped judge the Argos cheerleader finals at Scarborough Town Centre and the mall’s centre court was packed, reverberating with that weird chant, “Argoooos,? part lament, part pride.

That’s the thing about the Argonauts. They hang around in malls like the rest of us, not under chandeliers or in limos.

They’re organic. Only an Argos crowd would include a rabbit, Sunki (Hopi for “to catch up with?) wearing a double-blue sweater and chilling in a pram.

The team, founded in 1873, goes so far back in our civic psyche we all seem to have a connection.

My grandfather, Archie Stewart, had a stint with the Argos before joining the Grey Cup winning Balmy Beachers in 1930.

The Leafs may be the glamor boys, but, hell, the Argos are family.

Even the cheerleaders. In the throng of fans, I bump into Laura Potter-Muff, 54.

A year or two or three ago, Laura tried out for the Argo cheer squad. She was a pompom practitioner at George Harvey Collegiate, on Keele St., near Eglinton Ave., back in the day of cartwheels and sis-boom-bah. But the Argos wanted dancers.

She didn’t make the first cut.

“I can’t dance,? Laura tells me. “When the rest of the girls sashayed left, I went somewhere else entirely.

“No danceability at all. I still do the same steps I did in high school and at my wedding.?

The talent must skip a generation, or it’s the lessons starting at age three, because daughter Vanessa, 18, sure can dance.

She’s one of 46 finalists high-stepping and speechifying for us judges, including singer Karl Wolf.

Sadly, she does not get my question, which is: “What advice would you give Rob Ford??

“I think he should keep doing what he’s doing ... he loves life,? says a long blonde named Kimberly, to a roar from the Scarberians — which would have scared any of my downtown neighbours to death.

Ford Nation shops at Scarborough Town Centre.

Instead, Vanessa fields a query about healthy food, then nails her routine.

Her mom’s in her head. “Shoulders back. Stand straight. Smile...?

It works. She makes the squad of 25 — more than three decades after her mom fell short.

“She’s living vicariously through me,? says Vanessa, a dance and education student at York. “No, seriously, she’s my biggest supporter and my inspiration.?

As a dancer?

“Hmmm. Well, I do get my stage presence from her,? she says, with all the tact required of an Argos cheerleader.

You need tact when you’re part of a winning team in Toronto.
