"Down goes Team Cleavage! Down goes Team Cleavage! Down goes Team Cleavage!" It's at least as big an upset as Joe Frazier getting decked by George Foreman.

We told you earlier that many of the finalists to become a Houston Texans cheerleader clearly fell into two camps: Team Cleavage and Team Modesty.

So who did better?

Maybe the judges were all Rick Santorum supporters outraged at the glimpse of flesh, or maybe Team Modesty were just better dancers, smarter and had more personality, or maybe everyone's a winner and it's just great to be nominated, but the scoreboard doesn't lie:

Team Modesty 5 Team Cleavage 2

Not even close.

The results by poster:

Tip for next year: Turtleneck sweaters. Long-sleeved.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
