This Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings are hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at US Bank Stadium. It should (hopefully) be a competitive game. It’ll be tough, but the Vikes have a good shot at squeezing out a victory against a tough team. The fans will be loud and raucous, Dalvin Cook will rush for at least 150 yards (*cough*fantasyfootball*cough*), and the D should have the talent to shut down Jameis Winston.

But I’m not here to talk about football. Or my fantasy team. You’re welcome. Because this Sunday, there’s another group of athletes who will be competing inside US Bank Stadium that won’t get nearly enough attention. But trust me, their matchup is going to be just as bloody as the actual game. There will absolutely be broken bones and personal fouls. It’s going to get violent. You may not want to bring your children.

Since we sadly don’t have the budget to afford a steel cage and do this thing the proper way, you’ll have to use your imagination. Because this…

this…

…is a BATTLE OF THE CHEERLEADERS.

First, let’s take a look at the official roster for our Minnesota Vikings cheer team:

To me, this is twice as big as Mayweather-McGregor. So let’s start taking some bets. Between the Buccaneers and Vikings cheerleaders, who wins in a straight-up fight? Assume illegal MMA moves and pirate swords are not allowed. My money’s on Minnesota, personally!
