Danica Patrick finishes
eighth in Daytona 500

USA Today, by Jeff Gluck

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/24/2013 5:01:07 PM

Daytona Beach, Fla. - Danica Patrick finished eighth in the Daytona 500 on Sunday. She appeared to check up on the final lap when a crash erupted behind her. NASCAR did not throw a caution flag. "You needed a hole. You needed people to help you out," she said. "I had a feeling I was going to get freight-trained (if I went low)." Jimmie Johnson won the race. Patrick led a lap at the Daytona 500, not quite halfway through the 200-lap event. She ran in the top 10 most of the day, and was running third toward the end of the race. Patrick, the first woman to ever win the pole for a Sprint Cup Series race,

Finishing in the top ten is a good thing.

She went from 3rd to 8th on the last lap. I don´t call that good. She was in the #1 car and finished 8th by being lucky avoiding some nasty crashes. Again, not that good.

NASCAR itself is boring...boring...boring these days. I was mostly watching bowling with an occasional flip back to the race to see if there were any more crashes. Bowling was better, IMO.

Danica was fantastic. She didn´t get a lot of help, which every driver knows is necessary to win a race. She electrified the crowd, and I imagine the TV ratings too. All the haters who like NASCAR but not her ought to wake up. She is going to make your favorite sport more popular than ever. Way to go, Danica!

You go girl.

Today was a day of real accomplishments.

NASCAR
Match Play Golf

and then tonight the gypsies tramps and thieves will trample the red carpet.

The first two events of the day were worthy of real America.

It was a surprisingly incident-free race. It seemed to me that the drivers were keeping their distance from each other due to the new car designs. It also appeared to me that, in the last lap, Danica was intentionally blocked to push her back to 8th. WHen they interviewed her, I could tell she wanted to complain about it, but held back. Gotta give her credit for biting her lip on that.

Everyone in a restrictor plate race gets shuffled back. Danica got shuffled at a bad time, the end of the race. Otherwise she drove very well, even leading for a lap, something a lot of drivers would like to have done. Good Job Danica!

Danica did a great job today, and proved herself as a driver, rather than just a woman. Yes, it was a day of historic firsts for women in NASCAR, but now it´s time to move off of her gender and her love life, and let her do her job.

Thank you, #7 and #18. If not simply for her gender, there would have been no story at all for any racer who fell from #3 to #8 in the blink of an eye.

What the story doesn´t say is that the final 5 laps began after a yellow flag, so it was anybody´s race. That she fell back so quickly means only one thing: SHE WAS SCHOOLED.

My apologies to anyone that may have posted here that finished 7th or better in the race today.

If the men refused to perform behaviour for her during the race that they would normally perform for a male driver, then sounds like the men need to be taken to the woodshed, not Danica being criticized by ignorant posters.

Finishing in the top 8 was very good. Finishing this race is pretty special in itself. Attrition takes its toll.

The resident misogynists always have to slam her. She´ll keep keepin´ on. Maybe someday she will have the support that the male drivers have.

Other racers know she is really quite good. A smart driver.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday accused Secretary of State John Kerry of presiding over a “trifecta” of foreign policy disasters. McCain lambasted his former Senate colleague at a hearing in which Kerry faced wide-ranging criticism about the administration’s handling of crises in the Middle East and Ukraine. “I think you’re about to hit the trifecta,” McCain declared. “Geneva II [a Syrian peace meeting] was a total collapse, as I predicted to you that it would be. ...

Murrysville, Pa. - One person was in custody after emergency officials reported five or six people were stabbed at a high school near Pittsburgh. Dan Stevens, the spokesman for Westmoreland County emergency management, says the suspect is in custody at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville. That´s about 15 miles east of Pittsburgh. It wasn´t immediately clear if the suspect and the victims are students, adults, or a mix of both. But Stevens says it does not appear any of the victims suffered life-threatening injuries. Early reports are that a person ran through the school slashing or puncturing students with

It´s deep, it’s dark and it’s mysterious. It could also swallow the world’s tallest building, end-to-end, four times — and still have room for more. The Tasmania-sized area of the southern Indian Ocean where Flight MH370 is believed to have crashed is not only tempestuous and broad. It is also chillingly deep — so much so that natural light cannot penetrate the blackness and even whales cannot dive to the bottom. As the hunt for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet drags on, we look at the mysteries of the sea and examine the search challenges below the waves.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve found myself in a bunch of conversations in which the unspoken assumption was that the main goal of life is to maximize happiness. That’s normal. When people plan for the future, they often talk about all the good times and good experiences they hope to have. We live in a culture awash in talk about happiness. In one three-month period last year, more than 1,000 books were released on Amazon on that subject. But notice this phenomenon. When people remember the past, they don’t only talk about happiness. It is often the ordeals that seem most significant. People shoot for happiness but feel

Toyota Motor Corp, the world’s largest automaker, recalled 6.76 million vehicles globally. The shares extended declines. The five recalls involve 27 Toyota models, the Pontiac Vibe and the Subaru Trezia, the company said in an e-mail. Given some models are involved in duplicate recalls, the total number of vehicles remedied is 6.39 million, it said. Toyota, which isn’t aware of any injuries or fatalities, said it’s recalling the vehicles for issues ranging from spiral cables to seat rails and engine starters, it said. President Akio Toyoda has pledged to improve Toyota’s recall process after regulators punished the company for covering up information

Washington - The Pentagon plans to remove 50 nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missiles from their silos over the next four years but not eliminate them from the U.S. arsenal, a move aimed at complying with a 2010 treaty with Russia and avoiding a fight with members of Congress from states where the missiles are based. Lawmakers had feared reductions in nuclear forces required under the New START treaty would eliminate an entire ICBM squadron at one of three Air Force bases in North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming where the U.S. keeps its 450 Minuteman III missiles — a potentially major economic

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws.

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by
