Meet the Philadelphia Eagles’ First Male Cheerleader

via 6 ABC

Let’s give a warm Philadelphia welcome to Kyle Tanguay, who is the Birds’ newest cheerleader. He’s the first dude to make the squad, ever.

Some info via Action News

The Philadelphia Eagles will have a male cheerleader at home games this upcoming season.

Kyle Tanguay was one of the talented dancers chosen during Tuesday night’s final tryouts for the 2019 Eagles Cheerleading Squad.

Tanguay is from Rochester, New Hampshire.

According to his website, he started dancing at the age of 10. He is currently a student at the University of the Arts.

Quinton Peron and Napolean Jinnies were the first male cheerleaders in the NFL when they joined the Los Angeles Ram squad in 2018. They also became the first to perform at the Super Bowl.

Yeah, cool. Welcome aboard.

Men make for good cheerleaders because they are natural “bases” and “spotters.” At least I think that’s the case. My mom has been a cheerleading coach for decades, and I think that’s what you call the people who lift the 5 foot, 95 pound girls into the air, where they do a triple back flip or some other crazy stunt.

Of course the social media comments on this story are all over the place. People still have an issue with male cheerleaders in 2019, for whatever reason, but as long as Kyle is a hard-working, blue collar, lunch pail carrying Philly guy, he’s good in my book.

        Oh this poof is far from a “hard working, blue collar, lunch pail carrying Philly guy”
        He attends University of the Arts for god sakes.

          The truth is he could beat you in a 100-yard dash and a push-up contest.

    My odds of finding a cheerleader that would hook up with me just rose substantially.

    Well… I’m fully endorsing C B S Kevin’s thoughts on this situation. On a funny note, Philadelphia is about to be known for something other than the Santa Clause thing when this democrat takes an ice ball off his head at the Linc in December

    As long as he’s not Mexican, right Kevy?

    That sensitivity training really paid off! Guess you slingshotted too far to the other side though, thinking you’re so morally high-grounded that you can judge others opinions.

    This guy’s a dish. What position does he play, tight end or wide receiver?

    • Nope, he's the long snapper May 1, 2019 at 3:10 pm

      He precisely places the ball in the holder’s hand.

    A man gave me… a massage.
    He was… touching and rubbing.
    And then I took my pants off.
    For my hamstring.
    He got about two inches from… there.
    I think it moved.
    It may have moved, I don’t know.
    It moved! It was imperceptible but I felt it.
    No, no. It wasn’t a shift, I’ve shifted, this was a move.
    That’s the sign! The test; if a man makes it move.

    By the looks of him, he’s comfortable being on the bottom, so this should work out great

    The Cowboys are famous for our cheerleaders.

    The Eagles think there are 37 genders and they should have one of each as cheerleaders.

    Just wait until some “die hard” Eagles fan lights this guy up with a D battery.
