Tiffany Jimenez Breaks Down The BucsOctober 19th, 2010
In his fantastic, twice-daily feature on Hot Clicks, he featured a link from Esquire magazine that has a cheerleader discuss her team’s previous game.
This week, one of Joe’s favorites, Tiffany Jimenez, picked apart the Bucs loss to the Saints.
ESQ: What was the biggest issue for the team yesterday?
TIF: It just felt like every time I turned around, a yellow flag was in the air. There was so much fighting, I asked one of the other girls, “Are we at a UFC match right now?” Also, the Saints had 212 yards rushing, and we only had 42. Our team is so young. I’ve watched them grow tremendously. I’ve cheered when we were pretty bad, and it’s impressive how we’re rebuilding.
Tiffany went on to suggest that she thinks the cheerleaders should do more radio spots, which Joe is confident would go over swimmingly for both radio people, and the listeners. Smart girl!
Problem is, radio is not a visual medium.
Then, there is this little nugget that got Joe’s attention:
ESQ: We hear you’ve never seen snow, but you’ve obviously seen plenty of sand. If a guy were to surprise you with a vacation, what sort of destination would make you cheer?
TIF: I love the beaches, tropical islands, rocking a bathing suit.
In all seriousness, this is Tiffany’s last year as a Bucs cheerleader, as there is a new mandate that Bucs cheerleaders cannot serve longer than four years and Tiffany has been a Bucs cheerleader for five years now.
Her next vocation should be working TV. Last year the Bucs tried out a few cheerleaders as video hosts. None were bad, but Tiffany’s spots were tremendous. She’s a natural in front of the camera. Her bubbling personality just jumped off the computer monitor.
Joe has told this to Bucs multimedia guru Scott Smith before: that Tiffany is perfect for video. And Smith agreed, telling Joe he also received quite a bit of positive feedback about her video spots. Some people just have “it,” and Tiffany does.
Some of Joe’s friends in the fourth estate also remarked to him about what an impression Tiffany made upon them.
If there was a smart local TV producer or station manager — and there are — they would contact Tiffany to do some of these off-the-wall, fun features, or perhaps a producer could have her host some syndicated cable series.
