Chicago born and bred, Maria was destined to cheer for the UIC Flames. She is smokin' hot, after all. See what I did there? Pretty clever, huh? I think it must be the Greek/English/Italian mix she's got going on.
Maria also seems to be a pretty all-around kind of girl. She was a 4 sport athlete in high school (cheerleading, soccer, volleyball and basketball), but she also plays the oboe. And honestly, of all the woodwind instruments, the oboe is obviously the sexiest (with the piccolo a close second obviously).
Maria is a freshman at UIC, so that means we're going to have plenty of chances to enjoy her and her squad over the next 3.5 years. Guess I'll have to start following the flames a little more closely. Looks like I just found my new favorite Horizon League team.
