Danica Patrick led 26 laps at the NAPA Auto Parts 200 (NAPA Know How, NAPA Know How) on Saturday but her strong performance fell apart when she hit a shoe on the racetrack. If I was Danica I would’ve went into the crowd and found the only person with one shoe on, and punch them square in the face.
The shoe did enough damage to Patrick’s car and steering that ESPN’s Live Audio feed caught Patrick saying, “Something is wrong with my steering, Something is ****** Up!”
After having to pull into the garage for her team to examine the damage, Patrick finished 27th.
You know what always makes me feel better, Danica. The NAPA Know How song.

The extra stop cost Danica...
Danica Patrick hit an unlikely speed bump Saturday. Patrick was in the lead at Montreal when a spectator decided to toss a sneaker onto the track. It landed right in the path of the oncoming cars, and Patrick ran right over the lost shoe, sending it flying into the air. Now, one would think a sneaker wouldn't do too much damage. Patrick found out just how volatile a shoe on the...
Danica Patrick was leading the NAPA Auto Parts 200 in Montreal on Saturday until encountering a most unusual obstacle. Someone actually threw a shoe onto the track from the infield, and Patrick, who led 20 laps and was leading at the time, ran into it.
Patrick knew immediately that her steering was off, but her problems didn’t truly set in until she broke an axle later in the...
Maybe Danica Patrick needs to adjust her restrictor plate.

On Saturday, Danica Patrick was in the lead in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race in Montreal until she ran over a shoe that someone threw onto the racetrack. That led to some steering problems that caused Danica to drop the F-bomb as she was communicating the issue to her pit crew.
As luck would have it, ESPN happened to be airing the audio of Danica's communication live...

Poor, Craig Ochoa. The guy keeps getting these high-profile games because he’s the NFL’s top replacement ref, and the gaffes just keep coming. Here’s Craig last night during the Steelers-Colts game making a call to the wrong press box. Luck threw 2 INTs in the 26-24 loss (Peyton also had 2 INTs this week). As for Tebow’s week against the Giants: 5-of-14, 69 yards and 4 sacks...
