Donovan McNabb clearly is not a big NASCAR enthusiast. Much like football, auto racing is not for everyone. On Sunday, Danica Patrick became the first female driver to ever win the pole in a Sprint Cup Series race. The fact that she accomplished the feat at the Daytona 500 makes it even more noteworthy. By topping 196 mph in one of her qualifying laps, Patrick earned the right to lead the field at the start of the most popular race of the NASCAR calendar year next weekend. Judging by the congratulatory tweet McNabb sent her on Sunday, it would appear that he thinks she accomplished more than just winning the pole. Congrats to the Illinois native Danica Patrick on her win today. The first female to win in a big race with this magnitude. Big win — Donovan McNabb (@donovanjmcnabb) February 17, 2013 Perhaps she will cap off the amazing story by winning the Daytona 500, but Donovan is a little bit ahead of himself here. Rather than simply acknowledging that he made a mistake, McNabb made a very sad attempt to clarify what he meant several hours later. To all the haters, in order to qualify you need to win and beat someone. Hmmm. Ponder on that one. Smh — Donovan McNabb (@donovanjmcnabb) February 18, 2013 Oh boy. McNabb may have some questionable opinions when it comes to professional football, but at least it is a sport he is knowledgable about. Kudos to him for taking the time to congratulate Patrick, but let’s not get carried away with the BS-ing. You thought she won the race itself — it’s okay to admit it.
