Congratulations Danica Patrick

Pin It

Danica Patrick was on "The View" this morning and that was as good a reason as any for me to take note of her historic Indy Japan 300 win last Sunday.  If you hadn't heard, the 26 year old Danica had her first IndyCar Series win.

Melinda W at Gather.com has a very interesting post comparing Danica's achievement and that of the amazing Marlee Matlin who just this week got bounced from "Dancing With The Stars."  Here's a quote:

Breaking barriers, fighting the good fight, that's why as little girls we were all sat down and told we could do anything boys could do, and likely do it better.

Now I'll be the first to admit I don't know a Nascar from a kiddie car, but any woman who can beat the big boys at their own game, on their own turf, is someone I have to acknowledge.  You go---fast---girl.
