  What an evening it was during the Miss America 2016 Pageant! A night filled with glitter, tears, deflated balls and a “comeback” by Vanessa Williams that seemed nothing short than forced. It was all the elegance of a contest between women to see who was the most beautiful in order to get a scholarship that no one knows what it’s used for.

Sidebar: I have tried searching for the judge’s facial reactions everywhere on the internet and came up with nothing. Well, not exactly because I did end up finding this:

  It doesn’t do the contest justice, but if you watched you know exactly what I’m talking about. Their faces were some of the funniest moments of the entire program. 

But let’s get back to Vanessa for a moment….

   I had no idea why it was such a big deal that she was making a comeback. I understood that she was the first African American to ever win Miss America (1983) and that is truly a big deal, however, why was the president of the pageant publicly apologizing to her? Why did she get to sing? WHY WHY WHY?

   Well, upon further digging I discovered it was because that after she won her crown she was made to give it up due to some nude photos leaking to the public several months into her reign. Nowadays, it would’ve been a different story, however, it was a much needed and seemingly long overdue gesture towards her. Still…..why on EARTH did she get to sing???

What really mattered that night were the contestants, the dresses and of course………that fantasy league!!!

Sunday night was nothing short of intense with points being scored left and right based on color of outfits, jewelry, talents and much more! More importantly, for the first time ever in the MAFL’s two year history we had not ONE but TWO people have all of their contestants eliminated, thus scoring +200pts right off the bat. However, there were no shortage of points being thrown around as you can see below…
