Cheerleaders Depart For Hong Kong


"Making this team was enough for me, let alone going to Florida twice for calendar shoots and to California for a magazine shoot," said Amy. "Now, going to Hong Kong for the Chinese New Year parade is awesome. Getting the chance to meet new people, enjoy a new culture and see how other people live and to be able to bring that back and share the stories with friends and family will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience."

Part of the Eagles delegation heading to Hong Kong includes the Eagles Television Network. Associate producer Chris Ubbens said that he wants to capture as much as he can so he can share it with the fans that are unable to be there.
