  1. Looks like the Miss Universe still has a pulse getting up to a 1.3 for the final half-hour. I’m a sucker for watching all of the beauty pageant that air on TV throughout the year so I was definitely choosing to watch it over football with my Raptors on in the background. It secured an alternative to watch after a horrible day of football for me.
