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.
