That's Sharon in the pink. She's almost as pretty as RGIII.
So by now you've probably seen or heard about 55-year-old Sharon Simmons, who tried out to be a Cowboys cheerleader. For some reason I hadn't heard of her, probably because I'm a Redskins fan and have been sitting in my bedroom with candles lit and YouTube on, looking at videos of RGIII.

If you're Jerry Jones -- we don't know if he decides the cheerleaders, but he probably should step in on a decision of this importance -- you have to be torn, right? Because let's talk straight about what we're looking at.

First of all, she's ridiculously hot. "Pretty" just doesn't suffice, and "handsome," as most women are called at her age, just doesn't apply. She's objectively and universally sexually appealing. If she's on the Cowboys roster, it's not too much of a stretch to think that Bravo, E! and maybe the HBO Hard Knocks crew are going to be in Arlington for the start of the season.

But let's break down the talent, per the DMN video found below. She looks lost at times. The kick is a little low, we think. She might be more at home, genre-wise, in a Richard Simmons video. That's not a dig.

But she's hot. Maybe even super-duperly so. Win or lose, God bless Sharon Simmons.

Okay, she is beautiful in the face; those eyes: Wow. She DOES NOT look like a 55 year old at all nor do I agree that "she dances like A 55 year old," as one of the other posters' assessed. One thing is for certain: she certainly looks better and has world's more personality and intrigue then many of the competitors that are less than half of her age. I'm not sure if I would vote for her to get the spot, as I have not seen the entire crop of contestants, however, unequivocally, I would not downgrade her due to her age. She deserves a fair shot, no question about it.

I was at the auditions. While the 55 year old is getting all the press, there was someone even "more mature." The lady in black in this picture was 62! Technically a senior citizen.

I just thought of a great bit for a city like Cleveland, Detroit, or Buffalo-you know, cities that no one cares about..........that should have been shut down, or converted into a "superconductor" project, like 50 years ago.  Have a squad of geriatric cheerleaders, it would be a total hoot.  Some in wheelchairs.   Some in walkers.  Others in moo moo's. Some yelling about the devane, or not bending the plastic covering on the couch.  Others knitting in utter bliss as Nate Burleson goes over the middle for a spectacular first down catch?  

ps-Another suggestion..........end Rowdy's life?  Isn't it time for Jerra Junior to transcend that roll?  One of these days he's gonna flip that dang four wheeler, and that momma bear is gonna hurt someone. I though about loosening the lug nuts just before he gets on, and watch him careen into the Dippin' Dots cart.

Is her concave abdomen caused by surgical removal of her uterus? Inquiring minds and delusions of The Graduate, need to know!

I've seen pictures of RGIII so yes, she's 'bout that pretty.  Greg, I don't like your version of "super hot".

love her enthusiasm, what an inspiration. but it's tough for most young girls to make that squad.on the other hand, if she lived in DC she would definitely be the hottest Redskins cheerleader.

She is in better shape than 90% of the other girls and deserves a shot past the first round of cuts.   Although she might not make it onto the Game Day Squad, she would be a fantastic representative of the Dallas Cowboys.

She looks DAMN good for 55! You go girl! The older the berry, the sweeter the juice right?

She looks very good for her age, but she's not hot. Sorry. I've been in the VIP lounge at Cowboys stadium when they had a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader reunion and she has more going on than some of the people who are less than 10 years removed from cheering, but again, just can't compete w/ the younger girls.

The one on black to her left looks about the same age, no story for her?

that girl in the pink on the left is probably what she looked like 30 years ago.I'm with you, she looks great for a 55 yr old, so GILFy.But, she still dances like a 55 yr old, so I applaud her trying and being in shape, etc...Just doesn't fit what a Cowboy Cheerleader does.That being said, she could definitely fit on like and older Dallas Cowboys team. Like, if they made a squad of older Cowboy Cheerleaders. Plenty of hots around that can do some cheering and PR to fill that out.

Hello.  I'm late to the table on this article.  She is 55 and yes she looks and moves like she's 55.  I'm 51, and even though I'm not near in the shape she is in, she moves and looks like her age.  I commend her for putting herself "out there" in a scene that is full of young gals who are dying to be a DCC and go through the rigorous training as well as the scrutiny by their supervisory staff.  This woman would be a great mentor to those who should eat well and follow the health guidelines in order for them to continue to look as gorgeous as they are.

Kergs, you know as well as anyone that Jerry markets directly to the beer-swilling pickup set and Jimbo loves him some Rowdy.

I agree with the first statement. 

As for the DC jab, I offer this: Pick the time, place and weapon of choice. I'll clear my schedule so that I am available for a fight to the death. I like knives.

The saying is "the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice". The older the berry means its dried up.   Nevertheless, this lady looks really good regardless of age. Listening to her, she knows how to stay healthy. Go for it!!

"Unlike" for saying "you go girl." Yeah, I "went there,"

I think its "the older the berry, the more likely it is to break a hip".

 you probably mean 'to her right'.  But I've seen you drive, so I am not surprised.....

I think I like the one in black better, too. But they both look like they might give you osteoporosis if you hit it bareback.

 I was wondering the same thing. Also, boobies.

RDP1 - If you live long enough, every compliment you ever get will be followed by "for someone over 50."

This is true The SG, Bubba thinks Rowdy is a frickin' hoot.

I know a lot of beer-swilling pickup guys. NONE of them like Rowdy. I'd like to hire one of the cheerleaders to high kick him in the head, then deliver the KO with a pom-pon.

Thanksgiving Day, Cowboys Stadium. I predict you put up a better fight than the Redskins.

that is ONE of the funniest comments I have ever read-kudos, JS!

I'm sure she's in the top 5% for women her age. I was complimenting. I won't live to 50. No funeral.

In Jerry's mind they do. Because Jerry knows all and doesn't need to pay attention to any actual evidence--that's why the cheerleaders wear the same tacky uniforms from the 80s when they could be SO much hotter.

Violence against Rowdy; I like that. I am reminded that at training camp a couple of years ago, he nearly ran over Roy Williams leg............SO CLOSE!  In a weird twist of fate, I decided that would be my last training camp when I witnessed a trashed trashy woman, with her whole family, offering "special favors" for cold cash in the bathroom.  SA is a stinky sh+t turd; it smells.  Only thing SA has going is the Spurs, and Bill Millers BBQ.  

ps-What does that say about Dallas, when they managed to make the local river marketable?  And we can't.
