A press release posted at the Grizzlies' Web site announces the 2003 Rock and Roll Classic, a competition for cheerleading and dance teams to be held at The Pyramid in January. The rules for the competition are brief and to the point, but one particular rule is listed in bright-red boldfaced letters: "NO GLITTER IS TO BE WORN BY ANY CHEERLEADERS OR DANCERS." If you've been blessed by a naturally sparkly complexion, you may be asked to pee in a cup to ensure that no sparkle-enhancing cosmetics have been used.
