Favorite MIT Cheer Moment: At practice where we worked on pyramids and Swedish Falls. It was comforting that every time the stunt fell every one was ready to dive under the falling person to protect them. It is nice to know that you and your team are close friends as well as teammates that do not want you to get hurt.
