Two Hamilton Tiger-Cats cheerleaders have been fired after appearing on The Howard Stern Show. I'm told they presented themselves as some sort of health experts and the TiCats were never mentioned. Details to follow....

UPDATE: The two women, Deanna Garraway, 25 and Ashley Harrison, 21, appeared on Stern's Thursday show. Apparently the girls were referred to as CFL cheerleaders (no mention of Hamilton), and participants in a Toronto fitness competition. Naturally the conversation took a ribald turn, and there was discussion of the girls' alleged virginity, and fellatio experience. Both girls also participated in the use of a sex toy on-air.

My source tells me that the a representative from the fitness competition contacted Stern today, to let him know that the girls had been dismissed from the TiCats' squad. Stern's calls to the Hamilton team were not returned. You can read more about this story on Stern's website (halfway down on the right-hand side) or at the Hamilton Spectator's site.

I'll update again once Stern has filed his synopsis for today's show. Here are the head shots from the TiCat's website of Ashley and Deanna:



UPDATE #2: No new news from Stern's website, but the Toronto Sun has picked up the story. It was an insignificant blurb, but it did mention that the women were exposed to a penis. (Cease the lascivious filth!) You can read the Sun piece here.

I'm sure the third update will entail the women's future employment at The Brass Rail. Just a hunch.

  1. Hey - nice update on the blog template. I wish blogger had more to choose from, because most of the time a person has to frig around with the HTML.

    And good job on the blog lately, in general. It seems zestier for some reason. I wish some of your blog entries were acceptable newspaper material. Why does the Ottawa Sun sports section have to be so sterile?

  3. Hmm... you'd think that maybe the Ti-Cats would be glad that they didn't mention that they were cheerleaders from Hamilton. Would the Ti-Cats organization be embarrased to be associated with a show like that? Probably.

    I wonder what the stated reason for this firing truly was.

  4. Too bad Lonnie Glieberman and "Gades weren't still kicking. He'd hire 'em faster than you can say "beavertail" and get them to launch the season ticket drive!

  5. AND TO THINK I TRIED OUT FOR THAT SQUAD AND ALMOST MADE IT 6 YEARS BACK. THIS SHOULD MAKE FOR ONE NICE WRONGFUL DISMISSAL SUIT. GIRL, THE SITE IS JUST NICE BY THE WAY. I NEVER SAW THE OLD ONE. GOOD WORK!

  6. Hey, from what I can tell this was a pure attention grabber on their end without considering the consequences. Yes, they did not mention the squad at all, but people are familiar with their names including children and that's what family games like the CFL are all about. I think it was purely distasteful to have photos of them riding a sex toy. Knowing what Howard's show is all about they should have thought of it before hand. This kind of press is not the only way to grab attention. But I hope the girls make it big and end up in a nice prestigious strip joint.
