Arizona Cardinals Home: The official source of the latest Cardinals headlines, news, videos, photos, tickets, rosters and game day information



Dear Cardinals Fans,                                                                                    

My name is Tamar and this is my 3rd year cheering for the Arizona Cardinals.  I feel so blessed to be part of such and amazing group of girls with a great coach.  We have been practicing hard all summer and every second of sweat was worth it as we stepped onto the field for the first preseason game.  As I stood in line preparing for the National Anthem I was able to gaze around the stadium and really appreciate how lucky I am.  The fans filled the stadium and anticipation rose as the start of the game grew closer and I could feel a buzz of excitement from the fans as well as my teammates.  Being able to cheer on the field for the cardinals and the fans is an experience that I can't really put into words, but I can say that it is a life changing one.  I absolutely love being part of the Cardinals organization and being able to interact with the community and supporters!  

Dancing is only a part of what we do as being a Cardinals Cheerleader. I have been very fortunate to engage in other opportunities with the Arizona Cardinals.  In 2005 I was able to travel to Mexico City for the Cardinals home game against the 49ers.  We were greeted with open arms by everyone there and had a wonderful time!  We were able to visit and perform at many different locations and interact with a variety of different people on the way.  We left with the perfect send off as the Cardinals won the game!  I also have been able to travel to Fort Lewis in Washington and spend time at the Air Force Base.  I was able to meet people who fight for our country and really hear how they live their lives each and every day.  I went aboard a few different aircrafts and learned how they work, saw how they use helicopters to save people and even got to fly a plane all by myself (it was only a computer simulated flight of course!). These are experiences that I will never forget.

Outside of being a cheerleader, I am a High School English Teacher.  I spend lots of time grading papers, reading and writing.  I really enjoy working with the youth of our future and it is such a rewarding experience.  Someday though, I do plan to pursue a career with the FBI!

Thank you loyal Cardinals fans!  This is going to be a fantastic season and I look forward to bringing my best onto the field at each and every game.

Go Cards!
