You gotta hand it to the happy couple - one of the best parts of this whole Dan/Danica thing is that both drivers are completely playing it up. To wit, here's what Wheldon said today in USA Today:
"When you tug at a guy in the pit lane, I think that is taking advantage of your gender, because it puts me in an awkward position," Wheldon said. "She was acting like a spoiled brat. I don't respect that. ... I tried to step away. She kept grabbing on me like a dog that wanted to bite my ankles."Meanwhile, I happened to catch an interview on 1310 The Ticket SportsRadio yesterday (gotta love the internet broadcasts) where Danica had the following exchange with some sportstalk radio simpleton.
Hayseed: "You should have kicked his ass out there!"
Danica!: "I gotta tell you, I think I’d have had a shot."
OK then. TMS is reportedly billing this as "The Battlin' Brit vs. The Phoenix Firebird", so all we need now is Vince McMahon. It's On!
