Does anyone remember this 1990s (and older) cheer? As a little league cheerleader, this was one of our go-to cheers Be aggressive, B-E aggressive. However, when I moved on to middle and high school cheer, we wouldn't have been caught dead cheering this out at a legitimate football or basketball game. Last night, that all changed.
I went to a University of Arizona basketball game last night. Now, first of all, you have to understand that this was slightly difficult to root for the red and blue as my alma mater is UofA's big time state rival Arizona State University (Go Devils!). However, since I work for UofA and my husband is in medicine here, I have converted to a split household fan. Plus, UofA is far better at basketball than ASU is anyways. So, onto the story. UofA was playing Duquesne University. If you just said to yourself, "Who?". Don't worry, I did too. Apparently it's a private catholic university in Pittsburgh with about 6,000 undergraduate students. Anyways, I figured that if I had never heard of them, our 16th ranked UofA Wildcats would have a field day with them. I was wrong.
This DU team was feisty, ball-thieving, rascals forcing 21 turnovers! We looked like we were being bullied around by a big brother, one who had a foot of height, 50 more lbs of body weight, and a wiffle ball bat. (not a real baseball bat, that would be violent! By the second half with us trailing by 8, I joked with my friend who brought me to the game that our Wildcats looked like they needed to be more aggressive, B-E aggressive. After a moment of laughter, friend loudly shouted into the crowd "BE AGGRESSIVE B-E AGGRESSIVE!" repeatedly. Yes, this cheer was busted out loudly, and the crazy part, I feel like it totally worked! We went from down 8 to ahead by 11 within minutes, clutching the win for the Wildcats. How wild is that! Love it!
