BU Dance Team Tournament Day 5 - #4 Miranda Trohan vs. #3 Sarah Shelton

Yesterday we saw two powerhouses go at it and we received a rather even matchup that went down to the final minutes. In the end, Rachel Scott walked away victorious to move onto the second round to play the winner of tomorrow's matchup.

Here is a peak at what the bracket currently looks like as the tournament progresses:

Enough living in the past, it's time for another good matchup: Senior Miranda Trohan vs. Freshman Sarah Shelton.
Of course, before you get carried away with the competition, be sure to remind yourselves of the voting criteria:

- Dancing abilities
- Spirit
- How well you think she cooks
- Smile
- Skills in a mud wrestling cage fight
- Driving abilities
- Provided bio

With that in mind, let's meet our contestants

#4 Miranda Trohan
Name: Miranda Trohan
Number: 4
Hometown: Danvers, MA
Education: CAS/COM '08 - Psychology and Advertising
Dance Background: Studio dance since I was 3, Competition Team since I was 8, high school dance team for four years, All-Star dance team for 2 years. This is my 4th year on BUDT!
Campus Involvement: Vibes Hip-Hop Dance Troupe
Favorite BUDT Memory:Definitely team dinners/sleepovers! It's so nice to hang out outside of the studio. I love just getting away from the world and being girls for the night with 14 of my best friends.
Interesting Fact: I bartended next to Dustin Pedroia and Mike Lowell :)
Career Goals: I'm moving to Miami to pursue a job in Advertising but eventually I want to come back to Boston and settle down...maybe work for Arnold or Hill Holliday as a creative director/copywriter

I stole that from her bio page. But wait, there's more.

Miranda is one of four seniors on the dance team and somehow manages to belong to two separate dance groups, meaning that yesterday she labored through double the workload as both the BUDT and VIbes, BU's Hip-Hop dance group, performed multiple times a piece. I would hate to mess with Miranda in a mud wrestling cage match as she often shows her gymnast skillz during halftime performances. Plus I heard she has a left uppercut reminiscent to that of The Hot Dog in prime form. Don't mess with Miranda.

A little extra credit: An anonymous poster commented on The Hot Dog's post on 3/11/08 audaciously stating his opinion on Miranda: "#4 is easily the hottest dance team member in the history of AE dance teams."

Not convinced? I know Miranda has David Ortiz's vote.

#3 Sarah Shelton
Name: Sarah Shelton
Number: 3
Hometown: Wichita, KS
Education: CAS '11
Dance Background: Trained in Jazz, Tap, and Ballet for 11 years
Favorite BUDT Memory: Taking corny family pics every time we get together
Interesting Fact: I was in a professional production of Disney's High School Musical during summer
Career Goals: Not sure yet...but I know I want to keep dancing

Sarah's bio says it all.

Sarah has earned the nickname "Kansas" because she is from the mean streets of Wichita.

I am slightly concerned that Sarah will end up like Jeremy Bloom with this whole professional dancing ordeal listed in her bio. Hopefully, the courts don't subpoena her like they did to Mr. Bloom, and BU will be blessed with a true professional.

But how could the NCAA ever argue with this washable tattoo?
I don't even want to think about it
So there you have it. Another Freshman vs. Senior matchup, and the freshmen look to stay undefeated in the 2008 tournament.

Choose wisely.

Voting is now closed. Congratulations to Sarah Shelton as she registered 54% of the vote in the most voted in matchup to date.

so deep down, sarah will be the loser

The Hot Dog said...

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone who has read that is now dumber for having to read it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

when did this become a beauty pageant

The Hot Dog said...

Anonymous poster #6 makes a good point.

The answer - it's never been a beauty pageant. Nor should it/will it be.

Sarah is definitely the most amazing girl :)

This is getting feisty! But I agree, Sarah is most certainly the champ. And the tramp.

After a late flurry by Miranda spawned by Dave Man, it seems like Shelton has weathered the storm.

Miranda said...

Dave Man? Huh??

The Hot Dog said...

Miranda you must've missed our radio show/bracketology. We dissected the bracket and you got a lot of support from a certain "bro" who guys by the name of Dave Man. If Sarah wins he said he's never going to call into our show again. He said he wanted the underdog to win.

Miranda said...

ooo lol thanks for the clarification!

All of us back here in Kansas are rooting for our little Sarah. Rock Chalk Sarah !!!
