The new Miss Oklahoma almost died

8:33 AM EDT on June 12, 2007

This weekend a new Miss Oklahoma was named. Her name is Makenna Smith, and she competed in the competition as "Miss OCU." She beat fellow out finalists "Miss Tulsa State Fair," "Miss Green Country," "Miss Altus," and "Miss Bricktown OKC" for the honor. She follows in the footsteps of Jennifer Berry and Lauren Nelson, both of whom went on to be named Miss America. So, no pressure, Makenna.

Interestingly, Smith is also one of the people that former OU football players Mark Clayton and Lynn McGrudger rescued after a car wreck back in 2003, providing lazy announcers with an anecdote that can be used on NFL broadcasts for years to come. What I find very disturbing is that Smith credits wearing her seat belt for saving her life, and that her platform is "Seat Belts Save Lives," and not "If You're Going To Get Into A Wreck, Make Sure It Is Near A Vehicle Carrying Two Oklahoma Sooner Football Players."
