From Outsports: 

Two gay men made the cut and have joined the New England Patriots cheerleading squad, the team announced. Steven Sonntag and Driss Dallahi, the first men on the previously all-female squad in decades, are among 14 rookies selected to pump-up the Gillette Stadium crowd this fall. 

Technically speaking, the Patriots have had men on the sidelines before, to motivate fans. But they were dancers and it was the late 1970s.

By the 1980s, “The men’s role transitioned to more stunting/tumbling/cheerleading” by women, said Patriots cheerleader director Tracy Sormanti, in a statement announcing Sonntag and Dallahi. “They were not selected because they were the first men to try out,” she added. “They were selected because they actually had the talent.”

To be honest, I thought the Patriots already had male cheerleaders. The team has a long history of supporting LGBT causes (not that this is one) and the Kraft family specifically has been widely regarded as the most LGBT friendly owner in the NFL, but what do I know? I’m just a blogger.

All I can say is that Driss and Steven are going to bring the house down. Especially Driss. You don’t post a photo of yourself splitting on yoga blocks unless you are one hundred percent confident in your ability as a dancer. The first video below is of him practicing and the second is of him actually auditioning.

Tough act to follow. Steven didn’t share his video but he did post this photo of himself during the audition with the caption, “So excited to say that I am now a NFL Cheerleader for the New England Patriots.”

Get it, bitch. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, once we infiltrate cheerleading, it’s all over for the women. They won’t even be looked at in auditions. Anyway, congrats to both of these guys on the accomplishment. Looking forward to seeing you on the sideline this fall.

PS: Still waiting on these two to make their NHL debut…
