A press release put out this afternoon by the New Jersey Nets brings word that the NETSational Seniors Dance Team will have its debut at Wednesday night's game against the Detroit Pistons. And what exactly is the NETSational Seniors Dance Team? How soon your forget. It's the basketball team's troupe of senior-citizen cheerleaders, selected at open-call auditions about two months ago. New York's Arianne Cohen was at the tryouts, where she checked in with four aspiring NETSations, who varied in age between 61 and 82. They didn't sound so enthusiastic back then.
