Miss USA Pageant tonight...Katie George representing Kentucky -- Sunday Cardinal Couple


Thanks to Donald Trump, finding this one on TV will be harder than keeping Katie George away from the net during a volleyball match. We've heard it is on the Reelz channel tonight. Still looking, still searching for Reelz.

We all hope Katie wins. At least here in Louisville. IF she doesn't win...I'd be OK with this girl winning: 

One of the women in the spotlight will be Anea Garcia from Rhode Island.

Garcia was raised by her grandmother who emigrated to the U.S. from the Dominican Republic. When Garcia was 13, her grandmother lost her job. Over the next seven years, they were homeless off and on, often sleeping in their car in a Wal-Mart parking lot.

"There were times where I couldn't shower, or we'd wake up hungry and go to sleep really hungry, but I would go to school early to eat and pack some snacks in my backpack to bring for my grandmother and I," she said. "I definitely had to grow up faster."

She eventually earned a full scholarship to an all-girl Catholic school which also gave her a place to wash up and eat in addition to getting a good education. She said she and her grandmother still struggle to pay bills and rent, but the 20-year-old has a scholarship to Roger Williams University in Bristol, R.I. where she's double-majoring in legal studies and philosophy.

Roger Williams U. I didn't know that Louisville Baseball's pitching coach had his own school...

  1. Good Luck to Katie (but she's more attractive with less make up).

    Quite a story on Ms. Garcia. Impressive path to the contest.
