Those of you longtime L.A. *sports* observers know that traditionally the USC Song Girls are much hotter than the UCLA cheerleaders. But if the photos (from WIZARD OF ODDS) from a recent USC charity fundraiser are any indication, we’d say the lovely ladies from Westwood have caught up rather rapidly.
The Song Girls stripped down to their bikinis for the annual “Swim With Mike” event, which apparently raised $1M in a single afternoon. Sounds like George Lucas might want to take a closer look next time he checks out of his locker at the USC swim stadium.
This year’s fundraiser was a major improve of last year’s scene, which featured a body-by-Nathans Will Ferrell and Pete Carroll swimoff. We have to admit though that the girls this year didn’t look all that wonderful out from under their tight-fitting sweaters. Appears that that new Campos location in the heart of Watts may be taking a toll.
We’ve also been stunned by the progress show by the UCLA cheerleaders the past couple years. In the 10 years we’ve lived in Los Angeles, we’ve never seen beauties like the ones stationed on the sidelines this season.
In the past, if their was a hot Bruin cheerleader, it was largely by accident. So these girls make us wonder if someone new recently took over the cheerleading program and decided to go away from selecting only girls who would reflect the school’s rigid demographic quota.
