Check out what veteran Redskins cheerleader Tedi has been up to during the 2016 Pro Bowl in Honolulu.
Tedi here, writing from Hawaii as your 2016 Pro Bowl Cheerleader. It is amazing to be here representing our organization, the Washington Redskins.
I was so excited to leave the blizzard on Monday and head into the beautiful sunshine!
My first stop was in Utah, where I connected with the Pro Bowl Cheerleaders from the Rams and Jets. The two women immediately made me feel welcomed and excited for the adventure ahead.
We boarded our flight to Honolulu only to be greeted with amazing smelling leis and signs all over the airport advertising the 2016 Pro Bowl game.
On the first night, I was able to meet one cheerleader from every NFL team - what a dream! We all have something in common, yet come from all areas of our great country. It has been a joy to learn about them and share the ways that the Washington Redskins are unique & special within the industry.
Aside from spending time on the magical Waikiki Beach and swimming in the ocean, we have been practicing a ton for the big game on Sunday. We love bringing all of our different NFL team styles together to form one unique team.
Myself and a handful of other cheerleaders were able to make a visit to Shriner's Hospital for Children on the island. I felt so fortunate to spend time with the strong and resilient children of the hospital. They knew how to shake my pom poms better than I do!
We are looking forward to practicing at Aloha Stadium - won't that be amazing in the Hawaiian heat. Some of these ladies aren't used to outside stadiums like we have with FedExField.
I can't wait to be drafted onto Team Irvin or Team Rice - I wonder where I will land? I assume the winning team, of course!
Can't wait to check in soon!
