Those Socially Conscious Rams Cheerleaders Stage an Impromptu Sit-In During a Game
During the recent NBC Sunday Night Football battle between the Rams and Seahawks in Los Angeles, a group of dedicated social activists took to the field in protest.
Oh wait, check that.
Actually, it was just the Rams cheerleaders and mascot giddily losing track of time in the end zone after the two-minute warning during the first half.
We apologize for the error.
Indeed, these devoted leaders of cheer were just having too damn much fun, and the fact that the game was about to resume did little to damper their infectious enthusiasm:

Sadly, their oblivious joy was rudely interrupted by that menacing announcement from the officials.
The politically charged pop culture references aside, they did eventually leave the field, still smiling of course.
While we're quite sure that Rampage and the gender diverse Rams cheerleaders have definitive thoughts and passionate opinions on climate change, their protest lacked the cohesive message of the one staged at Harvard/Yale:
At halftime of Harvard-Yale a sit in protesting climate issues has broken out on the field, at least delaying the second half and the way the protest is growing I would be shocked if the game continues. pic.twitter.com/2BWCU2fLuI— Joel Sherman (@Joelsherman1) November 23, 2019
Anyway, the wacky scene did at least produce this observation:
