Week 3 – Aug. 21
@ Chicago
KNBR 1050/107.7 the Bone

Week 4 – Aug. 29
vs. San Diego
KNBR 1050/107.7 the Bone

You think making an NFL team is tough? How about making an NFL cheerleading squad? Bee colleagues Ed Fletcher and Manny Crisostomo attended the Gold Rush tryouts this past weekend and got an up-close look at the process. Ed even busted out a few moves. Thank God he didn't wear Spandex. Click here for the story and here for the video.
