We know that NFL cheerleaders get paid so poorly for their services (in some case as little as $50 a game) and most have to have a full time job somewhere, but this is the first time we heard of one who had actually passed the bar. And by BAR we don’t mean the one down the street you visit to get drunk. We mean the BAR exam that lawyers take.
Apparently cheerleader for the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons, Irina Khasin, is not only graduated law school, she also holds a job now as an assistant district attorney, meaning a Falcons fan could get drunk during a game while watching her shake her pom poms, get arrested for DUI on the way home and then maybe see her in court again the next day.
At right, a picture of Irina in “work” and “play” mode.
Whether you’re a law student or a Supreme Court justice (yes, Ruth Bader Ginsberg once shook her pom-poms on the field), moonlighting as a cheerleader has its perks. What better way to learn how to BE AGGRESSIVE! B-E AGGRESSIVE! B-E A-G-G-R-E-S-S-I-V-E! in the courtroom? Today’s legal cheerleader has an impressive rack résumé: she used to work in Biglaw, she’s now working as an ADA, and most importantly, she moonlights as a cheerleader for the Atlanta Falcons. Wouldn’t you like to have a lovely litigatrix like her on your side? Let’s take a look at her cheerleading bio and, because this post would be WWOP, some photos of this gorgeous glamazon…. Meet Irina Khasin, a 2009 graduate of Vanderbilt Law, and a former associate at Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton.
