The Official Danica Patrick Fan Site
Looks like we'll be getting another weekly chronicle of Danica from Brant James in 2013
I really enjoy these behind the scenes articles.
If he is going to do this again this year, it may be valuable to create a single discussion thread to capture the links to all of his articles?
I find this a remarkable and very heartening article. For one thing, it highlights how forcefully Bob Parsons has her back. I can think of few statements so strongly making that clear as his arranging for her to be the parade grand marshal at the bowl game carrying the name GoDaddy.com (even if he is no longer sole owner), an appearance that follows so soon after his putting her again front and center in GoDaddy’s Super Bowl ads.
For another, the article often focuses on aspects of Danica’s personality – the enjoyment, for instance, that she gets from interacting with fans – that are only touched on elsewhere. It was really fun to be given such a thorough description of her working a room, along with relevant comments by a man, the first black mayor of Mobile, Alabama, who is not only able to perceive her talent for it, and to value it, but who is himself a prime exemplar of that talent.
And thanks be to God for Brant James, who is obviously very much a Danica Patrick supporter and who can be counted on to keep her name in the public consciousness in a positive way, even between seasons. I would be in favor of creating a Brant James thread.
