I admit to being a bit pissed that ON PIT ROW got dissed by Danica Patrick recently. But you have to give the diva of open wheel racing – and her handlers – some cred for NASCAResque promotional cahones.
I got this from Marc and Full Throttle – which is another example of FT being the best there is in NASCAR’s blogosphere. Go Daddy has a new Super Bowl promo featuring the overrated one in a video ogle-off that ought to light up the Go Daddy site from now through February.
I haven’t seen anything nearly as original – or as fun – as this from anybody on the stock car side of things this whole winter. Apparently the subjects of the kingdom of France are all too busy whining about how tight money is. Better get going you guys. One of Tony George’s crew just stole some of your February monopoly.
FYI, Ms Patrick was in our town this week to speak at an annual, Italian-American Sports Hall-of-Fame dinner. A dinner at which, Dick Vitale, the late Al Maguire and recently, Mario Andretti have spoken. When Andretti was here, we had him on the show. Danica, however, couldn’t be bothered.
Do you think her butt looks big in red?
