Racing used to feature race queens. They'd wear sashes and heels and their hair was up and their smiles were constant. But they have become an endangered species. There are fewer of them every year. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn't seem to care.
The Super Bowl is their coming out. They're back, baby. Although they don't dress like race queens, the spirit behind the sashes perseveres.
One woman, and I have no idea who she represented, exposed her midriff. Another exposed pretty much everything else. A tan blonde, she wore a credential that said she worked in TV. Pictures at 11.
The most creative of the Latter Day Race Queens (LDRQ) wore a revealing white wedding dress, white hose, garters and red high heels.
She proposed to Tom Brady, who turned her down. She said she planned to propose to Eli Manning, whom I suspect also did.
Although the bride was jilted by the quarterbacks, at least 25 other males approached her to get an interview or a picture.
Some people might consider the queen business sexist. But if it creates jobs in this struggling economy, and spreads joy among guys who in real life don't get to talk to women in bridal outfits and red heels, who aside from the EPA can complain?
