    The Marlins Are Holding Tryouts For Fat Male Cheerleaders

    The Florida Marlins are looking for some footloose fat men. The National League team is creating an all-male, plus-size cheerleading squad to be dubbed the Manatees.

    The team hopes to recruit seven to 10 tubby men to dance, cheer and jiggle during Friday and Saturday home games this season

    Men selected for the Manatees won't be paid. They'll get tickets to games they perform at, and the honor of dancing in front of crowds that have been smallest in major league baseball for the last two seasons.

    If it is anything like the pendulum slam, I don't think people will be returning for seconds.

    This is one of the best ideas I've ever heard of in sports.
