Did you see the Miss Universe pageant? Olivia Culpo of Rhode Island won the Miss Universe title. She is the first Miss USA to win that title in 15 years. Even though Miss Brazil is usually number one in our hearts, BSP is extremely happy for Miss Culpo and the rest of the runner-ups. Especially Miss the Phillipines.
Forgive people for ogling Miss Culpo. Her father certainly seems to have gotten over it:
But, really, you go to the beach and see girls in bikinis, you watch volleyball and see girls in bikini. Why wouldn’t men have the same reaction when watching [a pageant]? It’s fine. She’s such a good kid.
He’s so proud of his daughter. When speaking of her future career ambitions, he says:
Olivia loves Boston, but in all likelihood, she’ll end up in New York or Los Angeles. We’ll support her whatever she wants to do.
Which is all a parent should do. I liked seeing Miss USA’s family values show during the pageant.
Of course, there are probably a bunch of crones out there hating on Miss Culpo or anyone else capable of capitalizing on their good looks, smarts, and good nature. BSP says “so what” to you. The governor of Rhode Island and her congressman called to congratulate her parents.
I wonder how come President Obama didn’t call her? I mean, if you can bring a bunch of NFL and NBA players up to the White House (at least 20 percent of whom are criminals), why not a fine upstanding lady who demonstrates family values? I mean, she’s going off for a year to fight HIV.
I suspect that’s a cause those professional athletes will support.
