Everyone’s Talking About It…

Okay, have you watched CHEER on Netflix?

I’ve been seeing it EVERYWHERE and am so thankful for bossy friends who told me to watch. 
I hunkered down with Netflix and managed to binge watch  by staying up WAY too late this weekend.  Apparently, I’m committed to getting a job done as well as committed to the Navarro Cheer Team.

If you’ve never heard of this series, Cheer, on Netflix, it’s a docu-series with six-one-hour-episodes following the Navarro Cheer Team, from a junior college in Navarro, Texas, as they prepare to compete at nationals in Daytona, Florida.  Not only is it motivating and inspiring, but you follow along with this squad of both guys and girls who have lived some tough lives.  You find yourselves rooting for each and everyone of them.  And if you’re like me, you end the series brainstorming ways you could make Monica proud yourself.

I’d like to stop right here to tell you to GO WATCH CHEER ON NETFLIX IMMEDIATELY!  Cancel your weekend plans and watch all six episodes this weekend.  #youcandoit

If you haven’t watched but are planning on watching, please stop reading here and come back when you’ve completed the entire season.  I don’t have any big spoilers but nothing will really make sense without watching the show.

Now, go watch so you can see what all the hype is about!

Every once in a while, a show captures my attention and my heart and has me wanting to finish as quickly as possible.  Well, Cheer did just that.  I finished on Sunday afternoon and knew I wanted to talk to you about it.  I must say when I was scanning the internet for information, I found some things you need to read or watch…

Not only are we, everyday women fascinated with the Navarro Cheer Team, celebrities are just as addicted.  J.J. Watt, I FEEL you!!  This was me when I watched!  I LOVE JERRY!

Celebrity “Cheer” Tweets ArticleYou’ve gotta read all the other celebrity tweets about this show!  They’re AMAZING!

Cheer Performs on EllenDid you see the team perform on Ellen?  Clearly, my emotions for these kids are still at an all-time high because at the end of the video when Ellen gives them the check, I teared up.

Cheer MemesYESSSSSSSSS!!!!!

Cheer Teaches Kalen Some MovesThere’s a huge soft spot in my heart for all of them, but Jerry has a special place.  When he teaches Kalen “mat talk”…well, I loved it.
Here’s to hoping Monica is looking for one more girl for mat in 2021!  Fingers crossed she’s looking for someone who can’t tumble or stunt but has some really voluminous hair.
Think I’ve got a chance?  

Have YOU watched?!  Or are you adding it to your weekend plans?  😉

    We binge watched Cheer this weekend too!! My daughter's really good friend does competitive cheer and the moms paid Jerry for a cameo mat talk….it was SO cool and we are all big Jerry Fans at my house. If anyone has a cheer daughter they should definitely pay Jerry for a mat talk. 🙂

    I also binged Cheer this past weekend. Loved every minute of it. When I watched them in Daytona I was literally pounding the floor, yelling and screaming for them to hit (in my living room, by myself). So good!

    Loved it! And I desperately need a Season 2 or a monthly update on how each one of them is doing. Especially Lexi. I know she's back with the squad, but I need to keep in touch to know she is staying on track. They can only stay with Monica for so long before being launched out into the real world.

    I am so sad that we don’t have the quantity of high speed internet to watch this where we live! When we moved from MN I started on my degree at Navarro College before I transferred to Baylor. I have only good things to say about the academic programs there at that time (1983)— totally prepared me to get my bachelors and master’s degrees in speech language pathology/audiology!

    I've been binge watching Criminal Minds for a month now (there are like 250 episodes…) but started sneaking in Cheer when I needed to lighten the mood a little. Haha! I purposely strung it out because I didn't want it to end!! Just finished the final episode a few minutes ago and I was definitely crying. Love those kids!! I'm just worried about Lexi now!

    Did you see JJ Watt surprise Monica and some of the cast on the today show??? It was literally the best thing ever! Monica got so excited! I grew up doing competitive (all-star) cheerleading and was so proud to see this show!! It amazes me what they can do these days and I agree: everyone needs a Jerry in their life!!
