Rockettes, and spiders, and clowns, oh my!

Seems to me that waking up to these scary scary, tall, overly-made up, large teeth having, creepy-smile-pasted Rockette’s hovering over you would rank right up there with clowns and hairy crawly things.

They are freaking me out just looking at them.

But the important thing is the Rockettes are charitable and visited sick kids in the Burgh and that makes them cool.

Rock on, ladies. Rock. On.

    I have met a number of Rockettes over the years. They are not as tall as they appear. The height requirements are from 5’6″ to 5’10.5″, with only a few being at that top level. (Of course, I’m 6’4″, so I like the ones who are 5’10”), the ones who are 5’6″ and 5’8″ have slightly taller shoes than teh tall girls, and when in line, they have the tallest girls in teh center and the shortest at the ends so that the entire line looks taller.

    They ARE overly made up. Of course, under those lights, anything less makes performers look like a washed out ghost.

    They DO have huge teeth. It’s like 45 Osmond clones. Scary.

    They ARE generally very nice and gracious, which is amazing when you realize they go out in winter with those outfits (not that I’m complaining).

    That being said, sick or not, those are some lucky kids. I just hope the girls didn’t try the kickline in the ICU, knocking little Billy’s IV bag into the lobby. Those girls can kick like mules.
