Ms. Racing Queen

I spent my St. Patty’s Day as a judge for the Ms. Racing Queen pageant at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale! Not only was it exciting to help select the 5 ladies who will compete as finalists with 5 additional finalists from the Santa Anita Race Track in So Cal, but I was able to educate myself a bit in the sport of horse racing as well!! This was the second week I have been able to participate as a judge…each week they have been narrowing it down, culminating in the FINALS next Sunday, where they will crown the queen — uh, did I mention she will take home a cool $100k!?!? Not a bad gig, eh??? Good luck to all the ladies…see some of my pics from today’s event!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Panthers Ice Dancers

The Florida Panthers just finalized a new team of Bova Panthers Ice Dancers…and I was called to sit on the panel of judges for the auditions at Broward Mall this past weekend. NHL dancers are a relatively new phenomenon and not all NHL teams have these “promo” girls on board, but in Florida…they do! AND — since this is the first year the ladies will actually be dancing on the ice, I took a turn and tried it out as a prelude to the auditions! See…not only do I judge, but I also find out exactly what goes into it!! ๐Ÿ™‚
