Exchanging gifts and pranks is a tradition among Texas high school dance and cheerleading teams before football games. But the parents from Andress High School in El Paso said putting poison and laxatives in brownies and cupcakes and giving them to unwitting rivals is well beyond a prank. Oh good Lord. Next thing ya know, prospective cheerleaders will get “kidnapped” and forced to wear dirty panties on their heads and get pushed into swimming pools while blindfolded and bound… No wait, that was the high school where my daughter attends and really happened. Is it just me or does it seem that cheerleading is just as competitive and vindictive as football?
