*Bonus*  Cheerleading’s Greatest Rivalry

In this episode, Natalie and I discuss the rivalry between Lawerence “Herkie” Herkimer and his protege Jeff Webb.  Herkie is credited as the father of cheerleading, while Jeff is consider the modernizer of the sport.  Not only that, but we get into the origin and correct spelling of the Pom Pons (not POM POM), the Spirit Stick, fake uniform curls, the importance of accessories, and the overuse of body glitter.
