champcar fanatics

(posted on 7-22-08 commenting on Jack Arute and his defending of Danica Patrick)

I don't normally reply in this manner, but I'm feeling frisky tonight after my first official infraction from Higher Authority.

JACK ARUTE: She looks at driving the same way that A.J. and Mario did in their day.

Minus the winning.

JACK ARUTE: I don't know why some media want to roast Patrick every chance they can.

Perhaps the members of the media are sick of people invoking memories of past greatness in the face of such overwhelming mediocrity. Maybe they are fed up with people comparing a driver with mediocre talent (at best) to the lions of the sport.

Let's remind Jacko that Danica has exactly ONE WIN in her car racing career. Not just her IndyCar career... her 13-season car racing career.

Imagine a goaltender becoming a starting netminder for the Canadiens without ever having won a game in Bantam, PeeWee, Midgets, Junior B, or minor pro.

JACK ARUTE: It might be because she does not tolerate their foolishness.

Or it might be because she's an overrated primadonna utterly lacking in substance.

Recall the words of Winston Churchill. Upon hearing a subordinate complain that the Yanks were so bloody arrogant, Winnie replied, "Well, they have a lot to be arrogant about."

Danica does not have that. And that's why the arrogance is misplaced, and downright offensive, and why 'some members of the media' want to roast her. And not in the Friar's Club sense of the word.

JACK ARUTE: Is there anything that they like about Patrick?

Yes. She is not 100 pound of Ebola-infected flesh.

When you can honestly say someone is not 100 pounds of Ebola-infected flesh.... shoot, who wouldn't like that?

I dunno, a turd bucket?

Is this a trick question?
