Eagles cheerleaders help peddle ESPN holiday gifts

I'm not 100 percent clear on what flat-tummied Eagles cheerleaders have to do with selling men holiday gifts to give their women - from GPS gadgets to truffles to Burberry scarves.

But, well, here it is, part of ESPN's holiday gift guide, which also offers a 2007-08 Eagles cheerleaders calendar for $14.99.

That seems like kind of a lot for a product whose useful life will expire in five weeks . . . unless people are just buying it for the pictures.

A few years back I attended a bar mitzvah in the Princeton area, my first such event in many years.

Upon seeing two Eagles cheerleaders in attendance as members of the DJ's dance team, I said to myself, self, "Bar mitzvahs have changed from what I remember."
