Rump Roasters get cheers, jeers, and rave reviews
01/28/03 Beef Press Release
Crowd Loves the Omaha Beef ‘s “Non-Symmetrical Guys”
Tryouts for the wacky male squad that cheers the Omaha Beef packed the house at the Arena sports bar on North 90th Street. Hard-core Beef fans voted for their favorites, egged on by KPTM sports guy and emcee J.J. Davis, who turned in a pretty crazy act himself.
From diapers to feather boas to a drag queen ensemble, the Rump Roaster wannabes used everything imaginable to put together an outrageous hour of entertainment.
Former Husker and Beef Vice President, Damon Benning headed up the panel of judges who picked four new Rump Roasters to join the veterans. New head coach Collins Sanders predicted the fans would have plenty to cheer about this season.
The Prime Dancers started the show with a performance that would remind any Beef fan why they were the top dance squad in the league last season. The veteran Rump Roasters then took the floor with Hawaiian shirts unbuttoned to show off all the Rump Roasters have to offer. When they played their own stomachs with their hands, many fans decided to join the action. The new Rump Roasters appear to be just as odd as the veterans. They do their best to live normal lives and hold down jobs when they’re not making fools out of themselves at the Civic Auditorium.
The non-symmetrical squad promises bizarre routines and lots of opportunity for fan involvement. The head Rump Roaster is Brian Daschel. He and his squad put in an hour a week to perfect their routines for the Civic Auditorium. But watch out—Brian may schedule extra practice in his autobody shop if that’s what it takes to shock the fans Friday March 7th when the Beef play their pre-season opener at home!
