Oldest NFL Cheerleader Laura Vikmanis' story getting The Hollywood treatment
foxnews ^

Posted on 03/25/2011 5:39:59 PM PDT by Red in Blue PA

Ben-Gal Laura Vikmanis. (Bengals.com) The NFL's oldest cheerleader just scored a movie deal with New Line. Laura Vikmanis shakes pom poms and does high kicks at the ripe old age of 42 for the lowly Cincinnati Bengals. A team so bad the last couple of years she was probably the most interesting thing to watch on the field. New Line obviously thinks so, as they have picked up the rights to her story, and assigned writers whose credits include "Gnomeo and Juliet" and "Ratatouille," the Hollywood Reporter reports.

After her husband left her for a younger woman, she told her sister at a Bengals game that cheerleading looked like fun, and maybe she'd give it a try. Vikmanis, who has two daughters, tried out for the Ben-Gals at age 39 and was rejected.

She didn't give up, kept working out and training, and the next year, at age 40, she was in!

She seems to be equipped with her own, built-in personal floatation devices - spurred on by a fear of drowning, perhaps?

He either suffers from macular degeneration or is just plain stupid.

I worked with a girl when she was 18 and 19. This was at a Summer retreat and she was hot as a firecracker.

I recently saw her again, at age 37 she still is extremely pretty. I do wonder if in five more years her looks will still hold up. My guess is yes.

If the Bagels don’t embarass my city enough, they have to parade this hideous old hag. No wonder her husband dumped her. Maybe his new wife is not only younger but not a skank.

Just because she's cute does not mean she's easy to live with.

Old saying: "There is no woman so beautiful that there is not at least one guy who is tired of her sh*t".

It appears to me that her body held up better than her face. She does look her age, not that she isn’t still attractive.

For a body like that, you overlook things.

"If I am near her in the water, I am hopping on."

I'm not a physicist, but I believe that the Archimedes Principle of buoyancy would be your friend here.

Of course, just to be on the safe side, I should probably run a few tests with her first - you know, for the children, and whatnot.

Judging by the veins popping out of her arms, she appears to be a bodybuilder. Nice looking, but kind of creepy in a way.

Reminds me of the movie Lifeguard with Sam Elliott, in which a 32 year old man is still working as a lifeguard. When you are old enough to be the other cheerleaders’ mom, it’s time to hang it up.

I think it depends on your age. I am approaching sixty and can appreciate the amount of work she has done to have a trim and fit body, even if her breasts are enhanced. If you look at the rest of her, she is muscular and has a very low body fat. That didn’t come easily. I admire her dedication to maintain that level of physical fitness.

You think maybe she’s in the market for a slightly used sex slave?

Back in the late ‘70s, early ‘80s, there was a 58-year-old cheerleader for the Los Angeles Rams cheerleading squad (aka the “Embraceable Ewes”). Her name was Phyllis Wanger and she was known affectionately as “Pom Pom Mom”.

I couldn’t find any pictures, but a YouTube video survives. You won’t have to guess which one is her.
