Most Team Spirit

Jodi Ricci & Brittany Dickie


Jodi Ricci and Brittany Dickie are two local girls – excuse me, they are encouraged to refer to themselves as ladies, not girls – who made it to the big leagues. The Lincoln natives have been dancing for years, but now they put their moves to work supporting New England’s favorite team, the Patriots. (Sorry, Red Sox.) Jodi is entering her third year as a cheerleader on the sidelines (there is a four-year max), and Brittany is a rookie. “I’m excited for that feeling, getting butterflies in your stomach when you see that arena full of people at game time,” she says. Jodi adds, “You can’t really explain it – it’s a once-in-a-lifetime feeling." While it might seem like a plum gig, Jodi assures that it’s a “part-time job and a full-time commitment.” In addition to their rigorous physical fitness and dance training, the ladies work on public speaking and run media drills to ensure a squad of well-rounded representatives for one of football’s elite organizations at their many appearances, including promos and charity work. The demanding schedule does have its benefits, however: Jodi has had the opportunity to travel to London, Jamaica, China and a Superbowl in Indianapolis. Next up, they were off to St. Lucia to shoot the team swimsuit calendar. Not bad for a part-time gig.
