And Another Thing


The curse of Danica

So I'm guessing this will become a Big Deal now, in the way every little thing Danica Patrick does these days becomes a Big Deal.

My reaction to that reaction: Please, child.

A couple of things about this, before anyone mounts his or her high horse.

1. This is stock car racing, not Olympic dressage. And Danica's a stock-car driver. So if you're at all disposed to be shocked that something as un-lady-like as a curse word might pass her lips now and again, it's time to board the reality train.

2. Some jackhole on a pedestrian bridge throws a shoe on the track(!), she hits it, and, yes, it (bleeped) up her steering. While she's leading the stinkin' race.

And she drops only one F-bomb?

I call that admirable restraint, frankly.
