    I liked Queensland and South Australia, but Philly is pretty too.

    When is the pageant?

    The Sunderland girl plays hockey, I think we have no choice but to root for her.

    I'm going to guess that it's hockey as in field and not as in ice.:p

    That's not her fault though. Surely if there were ice available she'd swing that way. Her face says it all. We still have to root for her. Even more now! The poor girl doesn't have a rink!

    She also plays camogie. Now there's a real tough woman's sport.

    Always a good start to insult the audience, Philly Rose.

    Pretty dress, though.

    ETA: Then go ahead and insult the host and certain Muppets

    I wonder if she realizes that if she weren't pretty nobody would listen to her boring stories?

    If Ottawa's frock was a bit shorter, it might make a skating costume for a tango sp. That would bore us to death.

    I'm guessing that Ottawa's Mom watched the Royal Wedding and that Ottawa never saw the Jamie Sale commercial for Crest Whitestrips.

    Now she's going to murder "Eleanor Plunkett" (which I've always wanted somebody to skate to). :scream:
