Is she related to...? Yes, yes she is.

Doug Flutie's daughter, Alexa, is the newest member of the Patriots cheerleading sqaud, and she knows what you're thinking right now, because those eyes are staring right into your soul.

Via Yahoo!'s Shutdown Corner:

Alexa can relate to the grueling process that her dad went through of making an NFL roster. Cheerleading tryouts for the Patriots started with approximately 300 girls and was whittled down to 31 members after three rounds that included a two-week boot camp at the end.

"It was very hard, very draining, but [I'm] very excited to get through everything," Alexa said. "I've heard a couple people — maybe comments online or people just talking about [how] I got it because of my dad," Alexa said. "…The cheerleaders have been absolutely great, they don't judge me in any way whatsoever."

Good for her. She says she got rejected four separate times in previous years, so it's nice to see her finally get her shot. Kinda weird that the daughter of a football legend would want to dance in front of tens of thousands of drunk, creepy fans on a regular basis? Well yeah, of course.

But the alternatives could be worse.
