Ram Cheerleaders Predated Laker Girls in L.A. Lineup

I enjoyed your article on the Laker Girls by Julie Cart but would just like to respectfully remind you that it was David Mirisch who in 1978 was hired by the late Carroll Rosenbloom of the Rams to put together the first professional Los Angeles cheerleading team. Of the 805 girls who showed up on that day of tryouts at the Coliseum, and two went on to motion picture and television fame: Appolonia (Patty Katero) and Jenilee Harrison, who starred in "Three's Company." David Mirisch Enterprises is currently based in La Costa and has produced over 400 celebrity sporting events that have raised more than $600,000 for charities. He has never lost his touch with cheerleaders--for the past 13 years he has produced the California State High School Cheerleading Championships at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
