Rejoice! Samantha Casey, Miss Virginia USA, is a Big Caps Fan.

While you’re Rocking the Red at the Verizon Center during this playoff season, you might accidentally run into such esteemed ticket-holders as David Gregory from NBC’s Meet The Press, Pat Sajak from The Wheel of Fortune or even Redskins’ TE Chris Cooley. But RMNB thinks there’s one more famous Caps Fan you should now keep your eyes on the lookout for. Her name is Samantha Casey.

A 21 year old Business Administration major at the College of William & Mary, Casey is a bit of a multi-tasker. Not only is she heavily consumed with getting her degree – which has a concentration on Marketing and Entrepreneurship, Samantha also manages to promote student diversity at the campus through a multicultural organization called ColorBlind, co-founded the development of the Student Chamber of Commerce & has tried to increase awareness about child-sex trafficking through promotional activities for Love146, a non-profit dedicated to prevent international child sex slavery and exploitation.

But really, that’s only the beginning.

Samantha Casey is also the current Miss Virginia USA, and will be competing in Donald Trump’s Miss USA 2010 pageant LIVE in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 16th on NBC at 7 pm (please support her on Facebook here). Along with her title, there are certain duties she must perform as well such as doing autograph signings, answering fan mail, doing magazine cover photo shoots & oh yeah, a reality TV Show (the first couple episodes of which are up here).

The crazy part is that Samantha does all of this while still maintaining a 3.7 grade point average at one of the most demanding colleges in the nation. But what has us in love with the stunningly beautiful Casey is not her schedule, but the fact that she manages to squeeze Caps games and practices into it while living an hour and a half away in Jeffersonton, Virginia. We dig the dedication!

Recently after befriending the blonde-hair, green-eyed beauty queen from the Virginia heartland, we asked if we could do a Q/A with her so that Caps fans could get to know her better and also learn more about her upcoming May Cover of Northern Virginia Magazine with Mike Green and Nicklas Backstrom – which has recently been profiled on Capitals Red Line. Thankfully, she agreed.

So below the fold learn more about the Capitals most beautiful fan, enjoy the gripping trailer of the reality tv show she participated in & find out what she thinks the chances are for the Capitals to win the cup! And oh yeah, one last thing, sorry for all the pictures I’ve included in here, but I think you’ll understand once you see them.

#beardpact Days 3 and 4: Not Unlike a Wool Sweater

Whew!  How ’bout that game last night?  The Washington Capitals beat the Montreal Canadiens in a plum zinger of a hockey game.  John Carlson and Nick Backstrom summoned some playoff heroics for us, but there’s a problem: they’re both clean-shaven.  Do they know something we don’t?

Just between you and me, RMNB might have taken the celebration too far.  The word hangover seems understated; it’s more like an aftermath.  Compounding the problem, Caps Nation is looking increasingly more haggard.  Scanning the #beardpact channel, I’m seeing a broad spectrum of growth.  Before we get to the parade of stubble, let’s check in with the Russian Machinists.

KHL Team’s Fans Name Their Heroes From The Past Season

Everyone who follows the KHL knows that Vityaz Chekhov is the roughest team in the KHL. Former Hershey Bear Reid Simpson and Toronto Maple Leaf Nathan Perrott have played there. Former Washington Capitals Darcy Verot, Chris Simon and Brandon Sugden play there now. And for that Caps fan with an especially vivid memory, you may recall rumors during the past offeseason about Donald Brashear potentially signing with the club.

Well this season Vityaz participated in a superbrawl against Jaromir Jagr’s Avangard Omsk, where 840 PIM’s were awarded in this game. No, that’s not a typo. I’ll repeat, 840 PIM’s were awarded in that game. Somehow this talented group of testosterone-charged meatheads didn’t make the playoffs, so now it’s time to draw a proper conclusion. And their own Russian fans were kind enough to do it (with translated english captions). They created “cowards awards” for the worst teams and players in their opinion. Please watch the above video and find out who wins some tampons and the inglorious yellow underpants.
