Newly crowned Miss America, formerly Miss Wisconsin, gave a shout-out to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers shortly after introducing herself to the audience.
“If you’re watching, Aaron Rodgers, call me,” said Laura Kaeppeler. Kaeppeler is 23 years old and hails from Kenosha, Wisconsin, so it’s not big surprise she’s a Rodgers fan. She made the focus of her future charity work as Miss America working with children of incarcerated adults.

A man was apprehended and arrested after being identified as the individual who shot two 49ers fans outside an Applebee’s restaurant in Georgia. The man, a Saints fan, became angry when the two 49ers fans were cheering inside the restaurant after the 49ers victory on Sunday. He attacked them as they left the restaurant, shooting one man in the stomach and injuring the other. One man remains in critical condition while the other suffered a minor wound to the head.
The shooter was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
From Russell Brand to…Tim Tebow?
After her highly publicized split from actor Russell Brand, Katy Perry’s mother is already keeping her eye out for potential suitors for her pop star daughter. OK! magazine is reporting that Mary Hudson, Perry’s mother, hopes to introduce her daughter to the Broncos quarterback and devout Christian. According to the magazine, Hudson said that, “Tebow is the perfect guy for her daughter. He’s handsome, charming, intelligent and above all, a good Christian.”
Katy Perry may not be so innocent now, but she started out as a Christian singer and both her parents are pastors.
A source at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am has confirmed the tournament is seriously considering sending the Broncos quarterback an invitation. And if Tebow accepts, the tournament wants to match him up with Tiger Woods.
It was announced on Monday that Woods would be entering the tournament for the first time since 2002. Woods last won the tournament in 2000.
The tournament takes place the weekend after the Super Bowl.

Jockey International is putting $1 million worth of underwear on the line, betting their spokesman Tim Tebow will bring home a championship trophy. The bet is being called the $1 Million “Super” Challenge sweepstakes.
Of course, Jockey recognizes that in order to achieve this feat, Tebow must first bypass Tom Brady. The comparisons between the two quarterbacks have only increased as Tebow has led his team into the first round of the playoffs. So, Jockey commissioned a national survey to find out who people were rooting for and which quarterback they’d rather see in his underwear.
The results? More than half (54%) of the 1,000 respondents were rooting for Tebow, but 57% percent said they’d rather see Tom Brady in his unmentionables.
If Tebow and the Broncos take home the championship trophy, the sweepstakes will spread $1 million worth of Jockey products among 40,000 fans. One lucky fan will win $15,000 in honor of Tebow’s number 15. The contest will run through Feb. 5. Fans can enter online at Jockey.com/Tebow.

Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl knows how to have some fun while in office. After all, he became the city’s youngest mayor when he was elected in 2006 at age 26.
Ravenstahl made good on a promise with Denver Mayor Michael Hancock that if the Steelers lost to the Broncos, he would be take the “tebowing” position while being photographed. He posed in Steel City’s Roberto Clemente Memorial Park after the Broncos defeated the Steelers 29-23 on Sunday.
“This is not something I ever thought I’d have to do, and it’s certainly not something I’m looking forward to,” Mayor Ravenstahl said in a statement. “However, we’re good sports here in Pittsburgh and I want to congratulate Denver on a great win.”
Had the Steelers won, Mayor Hancock would have had to wave the Terrible Towel at a public event.
We told you awhile back about the importance of the BCS Championship game and how teams are picked to play in the final showdown of bowl games.
Tonight, the game will be taking place at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans at 5:30 pm PST. You can catch it on ESPN.
Here’s a breakdown of what you need to know before watching the game:
The game tonight is basically a re-match of the two top teams in the Southeastern conference. They have proved to be the two best college football teams in the nation: the LSU Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide. LSU won the first match-up 9-6 in overtime.
The LSU Tigers are ranked No. 1 not only in the BCS, but in the AP Top 25 and the Southeastern Conference. Overall, LSU has the best record in NCAA football: they are the only undefeated team with 13 wins and no losses. The Tigers have gone undefeated in a dominant fashion, too: aside from their overtime win against Alabama, all of their games have been won by at least 13 points. They also have the best turnover margin in the nation.
The Alabama Crimson Tide’s worthiness of being in the BCS Championship game is a bit more debatable. They have an overall record of 11 wins and 1 loss, which is not much better than Oklahoma State or Boise’s 12-1 record. Some argue that it’s not fair for them to be competing for the BCS Championship when they’ve already been given a chance to beat the best team in the nation and are in the same conference as that team. Still, their statistics are impressive. They have not given up more than 21 points in any game this season and have held seven teams under 10 points. All of their wins have been by at least 16 points. They rank first nationally in total defense, passing defense, rushing defense, and scoring defense.
So now that you have all the facts, go ahead and enjoy the game tonight!
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs is the latest posterboy for animal rights group PETA. In the group’s latest campaign, Suggs appears shirtless exposing his tattoos with the words “Ink Not Mink.”
Suggs challenges his fans to watch footage of an undercover investigation of how animals are killed for their fur in China. “I hit people for a living, and even I couldn’t bear just to handle the cruelty to these animals. … If you can endure through 10 seconds of the video, you gotta watch it,” says Suggs.
