Sorry folks no YUMP!!! For whatever asinine reasons, neither squad in this year’s game has any sort of support on the sidelines, thus their fans are usually left to chant in disarray or be forced to actually watch their team play.
Only six NFL franchises do not use official cheerleaders, including the Steelers and the Packers. The others: Cleveland Browns, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions and New York Giants.
Since the late 1980s, the Packers have deployed more modestly attired cheerleaders from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and St. Norbert College. Officials from those schools were told that the cheerleaders were limited to Lambeau Field. But the Packers did bring cheerleaders to Super Bowls XXXI and XXXII, although they paid their own expenses.
At one time, Pittsburgh used cheerleaders – the Steelerettes – but they were discontinued in 1970. (USA Today)
So instead here’s at least something for you before the big game.
