This week I bring you this photo feature from a 1983 issue of USFL Kickoff Magazine. Apparantly stripes were HUGE that year.
The Cheerleaders of the USFL
With the start of a new football league comes the tryouts for the cheerleading squads that will support them.
The Los Angeles Express got everyone involved in the festivities, including celebrity judges like Lee Majors and Diana Goodman.
Of the five hundred potential cheerleaders that auditioned in Los Angeles, only thirty would make the final squad. In one short day the chance at stardom for some had flickered and gone out.
Let’s all pause for a moment to thank Olivia Newton-John for this awesome moment in 1980s fashion.
But for the final thirty, and for the USFL fans, the excitement had just begun.
