Sara:  I don’t know a lot about football, except I like their little outfits ‘cause their butts really look good in their pants.

John:  Ya know, I’ve never noticed that myself.

Sara:  You’ve never noticed?

John:  No.

Sara:  Oh. Come on!

John:  I’m too busy watching the game.

Sara:  Oh. There’s a game goin’ on?

John:  Yeah.

Sara:  Oh. I didn’t know that. I thought it was just about the pants.

John:  Do you ever go to football games?

Sara:  I was a cheerleader in high school. So, I went to a lot of games.

John:  You, you were a cheerleader?

Sara:  I was. I still know some of the cheers.

John:  What was your favorite cheer?

Sara:  Uh, Be Aggressive. It’s a really good one!

John:  How does it go?

Sara:  I don’t, I can’t really do it without the outfit and the pompoms. It’s just not the same.

John:  I gotta see that sometime.

Sara:  Sometime I’ll show ya.

Discussion

In case you’re wondering, the cheer called Be Aggressive goes like this.
Be Aggressive
“B”“E” Aggressive
Be Aggressive
“B”
“E” Aggressive
Go Warriors!
(The Warriors were my high school’s mascot. Each school uses its own mascot.)
It’s a pretty simple little cheer and it gets people riled up. Since most high schools’ cheerleaders use this same cheer, most Americans will recognize it. It’s a major part of our culture.
