Hi Lakers Fans!

My name is Kelsey and this is my first season as a Los Angeles Laker Girl! It is such an honor to be a part of such a prestigious organization. I am so lucky to have the opportunity to dance along side with the other Laker Girls, while given the chance to go out into the community and meet the fabulous Lakers Fans!

When I look back at my rookie year so far, many special events come to mind that I will never forget! A special moment for me was being apart of the “1971-1972 Lakers 40th Anniversary Celebration” that occurred last home game against the Rockets. At half time the 71-72 Lakers Championship team was honored. The Laker Girls had the opportunity to present one of these individuals with a commemorative ring, it was exciting! All of the amazing Lakers fans gave the honorees a standing ovation that they well deserved! It was definitely an experience that gave me the chills……it is so nice to see that the Lakers organization has such supportive fans!

Another unique experience that we get to be a part of, is the D-Fenders playoffs this year! As the official D-league team of the Lakers, the D-Fenders have been playing so well all season! I cannot wait to continue cheering them on towards a victory! Or even a Championship this season! In fact, their play-offs start this week. Be sure to check out their upcoming play-off schedule at www.d-fenders.com, so you can possibly make it to one of the games and cheer them on! Let’s go Gold!

This past weekend, we concluded our “Laker Girls Lunch Date at Carl’s Jr.” tour. Laker Girls visited 20 different Carl’s Jr. locations within the Los Angeles area. We had so much fun! It was nice to meet all the Lakers fans and it was great to see everyone in their Lakers gear! Hopefully you had the chance to stop by and say hello! Carl’s Jr. is always a convenient restaurant to stop at, and get a yummy bite to eat.

I am looking forward to the annual Lakers “Fit for Life” events this season. The Lakers organization has teamed up with Anthem Blue Cross to spread the importance of physical fitness and nutrition to the community. As a fitness instructor, helping others with their physical health is a passion of mine. I believe that if your body feels good…. then you should too! You can visit the Lakers “Fit for Life” homepage for tips on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. While you do that, you can also check out the Laker Girls fitness profiles.

I cannot believe how fast the regular season has flown by. I will definitely be dancing and cheering my heart out on the court! Even when the Lakers are on the road, me and my family will watch them and be supporting them from afar! Lakers fans, keep cheering our team on, right into the NBA playoffs! Be sure to wear your Lakers gear proudly and cheer loud…. Let’s go Lakers!

Hope to see you at a Lakers Game!
