It's Hard Being A Vikings Cheerleader, Vikings Cheerleader Says

Most people probably think that being an NFL cheerleader is easy. Apparently, however, it's not.

Minnesota Vikings cheerleader Kaylee Munson was featured in the Star Tribune on Tuesday and she dropped some truths on the nation -- specifically that the cheerleaders work out harder than anyone might ever imagine.

"A lot of people hear 'cheerleader' and think pageant girl or bimbo, but we are so different than that. This is the hardest workout I've ever done in my life. On game days we're moving for three hours straight -- dancing every break and trying to get the crowd involved. As part of our military performance tours, I've worked out with the Navy and Marines and those were all tough workouts but, no offense guys, I have to say that our cheerleading workouts are harder!"

So there's that, guys!
