Our new Miss America is Miss Georgia, Betty Cantrell, and she may have won the crown thanks to some remarks she said about Tom Brady. As was reported by Deadspin, which also has video of what happened, Miss Cantrell was asked about Deflategate by country star Brett Eldredge. The question was simply “Did Tom Brady Cheat?”
Miss Cantrell may have cheated herself by claiming not to have heard the question, but her answer was as follows:
“Um… that’s a really good question. I’m not sure. I think I’d have to be there, to see the ball, and, uh, feel it, make sure if it was deflated or not deflated. But, um, if there was question there? Then yes, I think he cheated. If there was any question to be had, I think that he definitely cheated and that he should have been suspended for that. That’s not fair.”
Well, though Judge Richard Berman tossed out Brady’s four-game suspension, it’s hard to argue with that answer despite it being answered under a 20-second time limit. And it was good enough to give Miss Cantrell the crown!
Is that enough to reopen the conversation? You decide, devoted readers!
