Danica Rules

It's good to see in this overly serious and sensitive world that at least Danica Patrick has a sense of humor.

Fellow IRL drive Ed Carpenter: "I think Danica's pretty aggressive in our cars. I mean, you know especially if you catch her at the right time of the month ... "

Patrick: "That sounds like a good joke to me, it's pretty funny to me."

So-called Feminists could learn a thing or two from Danica. She still maintains her femininity in a hyper-aggressive, male-dominated sport and she can take a joke.


Right *she* has a sense of humor. However the fact that this is even considered newsworthy shows how "overly serious and sensitive" the world is.

Still, it's pushing the envelope. What if Patrick said "Carpenter can't beat me, his [use your imagination] is too small." Probably something best reserved for trash-talking between friends, rather than the media. Sometimes you have to use your best judgment, and not say stuff like that. Despite attending plenty of Madonna concerts and WNBA games, Ozzie Guillen has learned the relatively hard way.

Danica Patrick has been accepted as "one of the boys" and is subject to the same kind of light-hearted ribbing that any other driver would. Unfortunately, the media saw this ribbing as a opportunity to differentiate her from her peers based on sex rather than driving ability. I get this kind of ribbing all the time; it's all about perspective and the media (in this instance) has none.
