    Miss Virginia 2008

    See her in the Miss America Pageant.

    Watch her stop pucks.....


    Tara Wheeler, Miss Virginia 2008, is one of the great dichotomies I've ever encountered: already judged to be one of America's most beautiful women, but also so accomplished a hockey goalie that at 17 she attended a tryout for the 2002 U.S. women's Olympic Hockey team. She didn't make the team, but she would go on to enjoy a standout career at Penn State, rewriting numerous team goaltender records. As Miss Virginia, which is a full-time job requiring 3,000-4,000 miles of travel a month Wheeler canvasses the state addressing students, advocates for a notable and worthy children's charity, the Children's Miracle Network, highlights the dangers of smoking as part of the group Right Decisions, Right Now, and champions the cause of . . . hockey.

    And then she goes in net against the Virginia Tech men's hockey team

    I love the way she stopped that punk who did the spin-o-rama.

    Wasn't a bad goalie at Penn State, either. Was a tough kid. Even threatened to kick the women's hockey beat reporter's ass (as did a few of her teammates) once upon a time.

    So, what's her weakness? The five-hole?

    She looked pretty competent in the clip...square to the shooter....moved laterally OK.
