While the Dallas Cowboys are no longer the force they used to be in the NFL, the allure and prestige of being a Cowboys cheerleader is still a thing to envy for some girls (and maybe even boys), and is generally a pleasing thing to see when the ladies join forces to create a swimsuit calender, posing in bikinis on the Mexican island of Cozumel.

It doesn’t really matter if the overall consensus is that Cowboy girls aren’t even the number one cheerleading squad on the hotness rank among NFL fans. A terrible team like the Jacksonville Jaguars enjoyed the popular opinion crown in that aspect, but it doesn’t change the fact that these girls working hard in Mexico to please guys who pin up calendars on their walls are doing something wonderful and important in the world.

Maybe, just maybe, the joy inspired by looking at these pictures will also push the Cowboys to somehow not mess it up this season and actually make the playoffs.
