I’ve never been too big of a football fan. I enjoy the camaraderie of watching a game with friends and family and all the great football snacks, but when it comes to the actual sport it’s just never been my cup of tea.
The cheerleaders who dance on the sidelines of the game, that’s the real sport I’m interested in and invest in. My favorite cheer team in the NFL is the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, mainly because they had a show on CMT that I grew up watching well into my adult years. (I’ve seen every episode, it’s by far my favorite reality show.)
Because of my love for that show, and my love for dancing I also love to follow the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders. The talented women who make up the team each year are so incredibly good at what they do, it’s mesmerizing to watch them perform the dances they do on the sidelines and endzones.
This week, the Minnesota Vikings are playing in London, and the cheerleaders went with them to the game. Normally, cheer teams don’t travel to outside games, but for this special one across the pond, they got to go.
The official Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders Facebook page shared some photos of their adventures in London leading up to Sunday’s game, and one of my favorite photos shared was one of them recreating the album art iconic of Abbey Road.
Even Viktor the Viking got to go with him on site to see the journey the cheerleaders took. Viking School! Their game in London will be on our TVs at 8:30 a.m. central time (2:30 p.m. in London) on Sunday, October 2.

How much does a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader make in a year? A Dallas Cowboy cheerleader can receive $500 per game or $15 to $20 an hour.

Cheerleaders for the National Football League (NFL) will sometimes get Super Bowl rings, depending on the team owner’s policy. In some cases, players can get bigger and better jewelry (like a giant pendant).
