Can't start the season much worse then this. Race is delayed a day, then Danica Patrick crashes on lap 2, then awful truck fire causing a 2 hour plus and counting delay. They would have ended the race had any big name driver been leading the race but they didn't want Dave Blaney to win the race off a fluke.
Danica Patrick has crashed in all four of her races so far this year.
I've got to admit, I'm not a NASCAR fan but even I'm watching now just to see what else can possibly happen next. This race has been a comedy of errors. Hell, even Blaney himself wouldn't want to win like this --- can you imagine 'winning' the Daytona 500 under these circumstances?
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
I actually see that as more of a stereotype...but perhaps we are mincing words here...I guess I am curious as to how our pre-conceived notions of "MANLY" affect how we view the athletes in our lives Cheers, Erin
