Re cheerleading ban: I would imagine your mother had other, unspoken reasons.

A nation of fat people, watching a tiny minority of athletes perform. Something kinda Roman about that. But sportsmania seems to occur worldwide, emerging whenever a sufficient number of people are prosperous enough to have some freedom from want. I think sports offer sublimation of more violent activities (war, for example). Let's be glad for the passivity.
