All the buzz at Indy this year was the fact that Danica Patrick became the first woman to lead a lap of the Indy 500 and her fourth place finish is the highest a woman has ever placed. All of that brought the best TV ratings for the 500 in a decade. Woo-hoo.
But does anybody care about Indy racing anymore? I know some of you think NASCAR is boring, but Indy has to rank higher on the yawn scale.
In another peculiar development, NASCAR driver and former Indy driver Robby Gordon complained that Danica Patrick’s 100-pound frame was an unfair advantage. Some point to other athletes with physical advantages (Shaq) and say that’s the way sports are. Maybe Robby Gordon should just go on a diet.
