Japanese accountant picked as cheerleader for NFL's Colts
Accountant Yoshiko Danjo will make her debut as a cheerleader for the NFL's Indianapolis Colts during a pre-season event here in Tokyo next week.
Danjo was set to follow her father and grandmother who were both certified public accountants, but her white-collar career has been put on hold after she was chosen as a cheerleader.
Danjo received dancing lessons for six years during her junior high and high school days after watching a stage drama of the major Shiki Theatre Company.
After entering Konan University in Kobe, Danjo witnessed a cheerleading performance and took up the activity.
"You do cheerleading in a group. It suits me because I am not cut out for individual competition," said Danjo, 28.
She didn't want to give up cheerleading after graduating from university and becoming a tax accountant, so she served as a cheerleader for company-owned football clubs in Japan and joined "USA," a cheerleader organization in the country.
From Monday to Friday, she worked as an accountant in Osaka, and often visited Tokyo on weekends to do cheerleading.
In February, while taking part in a special cheerleading course in Hawaii for the "Pro Bowl," the NFL's All-Star Game, a short cheerleader encouraged her to become a cheerleader in the NFL.
Dajor, 152 centimeters tall, said, "I learned then that height doesn't matter."
Visiting the U.S. again in April, Danjo finally won the Colts' cheerleading audition, although her chances were only about one in nine.
After a NFL cheerleaders' event in mid-July, the Indianapolis Colts will play the Atlanta Falcons in Tokyo on Aug. 6. (Mainichi)

Is it my imagination or does Peyton have an unusually large head?

Peyton may end up sufferting the same fate as Dan Marino. So dominant in one aspect of the game, that the others suffer, and as a result, plays his whole career without getting a ring. If Peyton ever wins a Super Bowl, it will be in a season where he won't have to throw 40+ touchdown passes.
Its possible, they MUST do it this year... Their defense needs to step up to the plate and deliver. If any team scores 40 points they should win.
If Fred Taylor stays healthy, I think the Jags will make it to the Super Bowl.
