Sharon Simmons, a grandmother of two from Carrollton, hopes at age 55 to be the oldest Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader when she tries out with hopefuls half her age Saturday at Valley Ranch, according to CBSDFW.com. But even though she seeks a spot on one of the most popular entertainment group's in the world, she couldn't believe the attention her quest received when she made it public months ago.

"Holy cow, in less than 24 hours after that story broke, it was everywhere!" Simmons said to the site. "No, I was not prepared for that."

A little skinny in the leg, but certainly not guilty

Sorry, I cannot find any of them not guilty until taken in for questioning.

I love women from Texas! We lived in Austin from 92-2000 and they’re friendly, polite, gorgeous and ladylike. This lady reminded me of my years in TX.

Odd body shape. More like a man. Put your clothes back on lady. Nothing to do with her age either. Not really pretty.
On a scale of 10, she’s a 5.

I hope she gets hired. Potentially she is what advertising people refer as “Solid Gold”. She could be a real marketing boon for the Cowboys.

Good luck to her.

Fawn, you are jumping at the wrong type of man. HG loves women and is not like most who think a woman has to be 6’3” and weigh 119 pounds to be attractive. His comment that her legs were a bit thin is actually a compliment to real women,not a slam.

Give her her props. The lady is keeping very fit

I actually agree with you - I don’t think she should be hired but she has obviously worked on that body. I’m definitely NOT a fan of tanning like that though - ick!

I NEVER said that. I’m 59 so I would be on that so fast time diation would take effect. I said I didn’t think she was going to be a Dallas cheerleader.

My 50+ wife is red smoking hot and could make the team, except she is on the short side.

50 is the new 25.

And I appreciate the fact you found a reason to post that picture ;) ::)

just don’t ping Laz “the hit man”

The last few "hit" threads have floated up a rumor Laz doesn't hit it like he used to.

Something about being PWd in a relationship or married or something...
