No Destination: UK Cheerleaders

World Equestrian Games 2010 - Opening Ceremony
UK Cheerleaders at the World Equestrian Games, Lexington, Ky.
The University of Kentucky has a great athletic tradition. Men's basketball has seven national championships. It is, however, the cheerleaders who are the University's greatest champions.

With 18 national championships, the UK Cheerleaders are the most storied program in the country. In fact, they've won 14 of the last 16 UCA championships. The trophy seems to have a permanent place in Lexington.

Last Friday night, the cheerleaders participated in the opening ceremonies of the World Equestrian Games. There performance was great and their Rockette-style moments (like that pictured above) were spectacular. But this picture also deserves some credit: I posted on flickr 242 WEG2010 photos which received 3,439 hits in the first 24 hours of being online and the picture above was (by far) the most popular. GO CATS!

I'm not sure it was school spirit that brought all the hits...

Well... you might be right. You think the tag "cheerleaders" might bring in some traffic as well?
