Two things I LOVE are Racing and Country Music. Like any fan of music, there are artists I love and artists that I don't love as much as the others. And like any fan of racing, there are drivers I love and drivers that I only love when their car blows up and they're out of the race.
I love Miranda Lambert. She pretty much rocks.
I don't love Danica Patrick. I want to. I love the IDEA of Danica Patrick... a beautiful girl that gets out there and takes on the guys. That's pretty cool. My big problem with Danica though is the whining. She whines. A LOT. And don't get me wrong, when somebody by the last name of Busch whines, I don't like them a whole lot either. Ironically, my favorite driver is Tony Stewart. Does he whine? Yep! But not as much as he used to. And his whining is different than a Busch brother or Danica whining. I can't explain it. It just is. Tony Stewart is THE MAN.
Anyway, I want to like Danica. I'm trying. The fact that she is driving for Tony Stewart helps. It's just hard to get past the whining.
And then I saw this video to Miranda Lambert's new song "Fastest Girl In Town." Danica just scored a ton of points in my book.
What's funny is that I saw ESPN do a piece on Danica this past weekend and they were playing this song in the background. I remember laughing to myself, thinking "Fastest Girl In Town... haha... I get it, but that's NOT what this song is about, ESPN!" And then look... Danica shows up in the video!
I admit it, this is a pretty good video. Danica's growing on me...
