There is basketball related stuff happening today! True, it’s only cheerleader auditions, but at least it’s the finals, right? If you’re interested in attending, then you’re in luck– the auditions are open to the public. The event starts at 3pm at the House of Blues, and there are drink specials and whatnot.

Our very own Andrew Smith attended the first round of auditions, which was closed to the public. He compiled this video so you can get caught up on the cheerleading action before you hit the finals this afternoon.
