â†µAnd maybe today is set aside for, um, other people, but I think the plan is to hereby pull it back from that scourge of society and give it to womankind. Woo! Feminism!
â†µâ‡¥'It's a long time coming. Finally,' Patrick said. 'It was a fuel â†µâ‡¥strategy race, but my team called it perfectly for me. I knew I was on â†µâ‡¥the same strategy as Helio and when I passed him for the lead, I â†µâ‡¥couldn't believe it. This is fabulous.' â†µâ‡¥â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥The 26-year-old Patrick won in her 50th career IndyCar start, taking the led from Castroneves on 198th lap in the 200-lap race. â†µâ‡¥â†µ
â†µPatrick's win is also the first ever by a female racecar driver in IndyCar. Which is awesome. Almost as awesome as the fact that she cried way less than Master loser Brandt Snedeker. Crying when you win = acceptable. Crying when you lose = Duke basketball. â†µâ†µ
â†µAnd speaking of sore losers, there were probably a slew of them that found out they were rejected from the Ladies... newest tournament, which netted them a hot mess of new blog writers to work on the site. After a hard fought battle between hundred of candidates, a few lucky ones emerged to help crank out all hot male athlete commentary that blogland so sorely misses. Although I'm a little disappointed that they let a Carolina loving hussy in the door. (No offense, Cristina.)
