Miss America asks Aaron Rodgers to call her

After the Green Bay Packers came up short on Sunday, the state of Wisconsin may be feeling like a bunch of losers. But never fear, cheeseheads. Though the Packers couldn’t win a playoff game the season after winning the Super Bowl, Miss Wisconsin did come through for you. Kenosha’s own Laura Kaeppeler was crowned Miss America on Saturday night.

Though her platform is to support children of incarcerated parents, Kaeppeler used her spotlight to try to grab the attention of another beloved Dairylander. During Saturday night’s pageant, Kaeppeler introduced herself by saying, “If you’re watching, Aaron Rodgers, call me.”

On Saturday night, Rodgers was preparing to lose to the Giants, so he might have missed Kaeppeler’s greeting. But with the Packers out of the playoffs, he has plenty of time on his hands. Give the girl a call, Aaron. Though you couldn’t lead the team to a playoff victory, you do have an open phone line to Miss America. Who needs the MVP trophy after that?

Miss Maine USA to Skip Big Pageant for Wedding–2779

Miss Maine USA is going to sit out Donald Trump’s Miss USA Pageant to attend her big sister’s wedding.

NBC moved the Miss USA Pageant from its traditional slot in April to June. Emily Johnson says the new weekend is the only one in which she had other plans — plans that trump the contest.

Johnson, a Baylor University graduate and accomplished pianist, is allowed to keep her crown, but she’s giving up the title, prizes and appearances.

Mackenzie Davis, executive director of the Miss Maine USA pageant, says she understands Johnson’s reasoning, but she says Miss Maine is a serious commitment and that she’s disappointed Johnson withdrew from her duties.

The state’s participant in the Miss USA Pageant will be the first runner-up, Ashley Marble, of Cumberland.
