MHSM Girl In Your Corner - Nicole Hurdle

November 2008 - Girl In Your Corner

Name: Nicole Hurdle
Age: 21
Profession: Full-time student, Denver Nuggets Dancer

Rumor has it that you’re going to be a Snow Angel for the second time next month. What keeps you coming back?
My fans demand it. Ha ha, only kidding.

We’ll put you on the spot. If you had to pick just one, would you rather be a Snow Angel or a Girl in Your Corner?
That one is tough, but if I HAD to pick one, then I would choose Snow Angels. Year after year, it becomes more and more creative and I am so thrilled to be a part of it this year. It’s going to be an amazing issue that all the MHSM readers can look forward to!

Is it true that you’re the only Nuggets Dancer returning from last year’s team?
It is true; I’m very excited about our 17 new girls! They are all very talented, beautiful and the Nuggets fans will love them!

What did you do to all the other girls from last year’s squad? Did you have kooties?
That must be the answer! Actually, many of them are moving onto other chapters in their lives and I couldn’t be more proud of them.

What’s your favorite non-game activity at Pepsi Center?
It would definitely be the sandwich race in which we participate. Any time we suit up in those silly buns, there is a good laugh – guaranteed.

Who’s your favorite Nugget and why?
NenĂª is my favorite Nuggets player. His determination and strength is truly inspirational. He is a great asset to the Nuggets starting lineup. Plus, it is always fun to hear him sing “Jingle Bells” during Christmas time!

It’s Friday night and the game ends early. Where’s the first place you’re heading in downtown Denver?
Old Chicago! They have the best post-game food!

Describe the perfect date.
It would start with taking me out during the day to get a fabulous outfit for the date, then out to a nice restaurant that evening. After dinner, we’d have to grab some type of dessert (I love ice cream!), then probably a nice long walk on the beach. Did I mention that I would prefer the date to be in Hawaii?

You’re also a CU Buff. What do you think of Cody Hawkins?
I think he looks a lot like his dad. It was very brave of him to choose to wear No. 7as a quarterback here in Colorado. There are some big expectations with that number.

And his father, Dan??
The jury is still out, but so far I think he has done an excellent job with taking control of our football program and moving it in the right direction.

As a wily veteran, what do expect from your dance squad this year? Any surprises in store for Nuggets fans?
This year, we are going to be very versatile; the fans are going to see a lot of new styles of dancing mixed with some of our old styles. Our team this year is extremely talented and we definitely have a few surprises in store for all of you Nuggets fans!
