You know those average members of a team -- the right guard, second-string linebacker, special teams specialist -- who stand in the back grinning relentlessly as the star quarterback gets interviewed and praised for being so super awesome?
Well today that's IndyCar as the media swirls around Danica Patrick. IndyCar is kind of like the offensive linemen, standing in the back, icing their body parts and trying to figure out why their socks are full of blood as the news cameras gather around Peyton Manning/Danica and grill her on why she's so super-duper awesome. Even if Peyton Danica throws several bones to the O-line, they know -- and everyone watching knows -- who's the star.
Yeah, good for her. Yeah Danica. Some are saying "You see the IndyCar right there in the shot with the N-word car! Great exposure for IndyCar."
Pardon me while I buy a cake and plan a party! We're "in the shot." So is the third-string cornerback during the Super Bowl celebration. You can "clearly see the IndyCar logo!" Super-awesome. Except for the fact that I have some pride and prefer not to see IndyCar grovel for table scraps from Cabland or to have the series' nuts kept in a jar on Danica's nightstand.
Anyway, here's the news release. Get ready for SportsCenter to explode in orgasmic fury. Maybe IndyCar's logo will be clearly visible in some of the shots! Won't that be fortunate for us! Firestone and Honda gotta be pleased with the Chevy bowtie and Goodyear boot Danica is sporting in the photo above! WHAMMO!
Where's my scotch?
