DENVER -- A Colorado man faced off against 200 women in the hopes of becoming the Denver Broncos' first male cheerleader last weekend.

Sacha Heppell participated in the first round of tryouts Sunday. One member of the judging panel said it's an open call, so anyone could try out.

Heppell called the opportunity "amazing," but admits he messed up a few times.

He was cut after the first round.

While there has never been a male cheerleader in real life for the Broncos, fans of the 1980's sitcom "Mork & Mindy" will recall that Mork, played by Robin Williams, successfully made it onto the squad. He dressed in their skimpy uniform and all, but got cold feet after getting out in front of the crowd. You can watch it here.
