There is also some banter about a woman kicker attending the NFL Combine. They say her odds of being drafted are zilch, but that it is big news because she is the first woman ever to attend the combine.
I bring it up because it is news...however false. Pretty sure Tom Brady was at the combine a long time ago.
Really? I just don't believe that women have to get into every sport, club, male college just to prove a point. Football is football, it's a man domineered sport with yelling, screaming, a&& patting, beer drinking...you get my drift. I'm a girl and I'm saying this. Danika Patrick is a different story, such as female boxers as their opponent are females. But, gee, isn't this going a little too far?
Well, the fight was entertaining. Ronda Rousey won with her signature submission hold, but it took almost a full round and her opponent did give her a battle there for a awhile. What that victory did do is assure that she will be headlining more UFC Pay-Per-View cards.
8th is good enough for the best finish for a woman. Too bad she got boxed in there and the end and couldn't make a move, or waited too long to make a move. I think Danica will be winning some races real soon.
Danica did a lot better than many people had expectations for. She hung up there all day, but in my opinion played it too cautious, and never tried to make a move. If she did however, no one might have gone with her and she finishes out of top 15. She has a lot to learn, but the main thing for her is making allies, and getting respect from the rest of the drivers. That will pay off in these restrictor plate races.
I totally agree with you. Had she made a move it could have backfired. One step at a time I guess. Now she knows she can run with the big boys. It must have been incredibly frustrating for her to play it safe there, but probably a wise decision in the long run.
