“She came to my team and our pit box in a very bad way with bad words,” Duno said. “If you come in a nice way, perfect, we can talk. If you come in a bad way, you are going to find my bad side.
“I don’t like drama, and I told her ‘go away, you are not welcome.’.”
Those would be the words of Milka Duno, everyone's favorite fan friendly actress and author who happens to drive around during IndyCar races. She was less than pleased at being visited by the world's fastest Motorola representative after an on-track incident in practice on Saturday.
Yes, the Danica Pit Invasion tour continues, although this week she reportedly stayed on the proper side of the pit wall this time. According to the intrepid Curt Cavin, who is certain to be nominated for a Pulitzer for this work, Milka did not hide in her car or try ot walk away. No, she not only remained in her pit box during the invasion, she reportedly threw a towel in the face of Danicker during the latest outbreak of anger management.
And why would Milkalicious dare to throw a towel, and probably a sweaty one at that, in the face of the open-wheel's beloved swimsuit exhibitionist? Let's go to Mrs Hospenthal.
“I wanted to know if she saw me (on the track) ..... it’s hard to locate people once they get away from their car,” she said. “I stayed behind the wall. I just wanted to ask what happened.
“Unfortunately, things involving me tend to evolve. I’m on the hot seat when I do something and when others do something (connected to me). It’s kind of the line that I walk because I’m popular.”
Umm, no. It ain't misfortune, ma'am. Those are your two feet and that's your mouth, and ain't nothing going on with none of them that you can't stop or start. It's OK if you want to go argue something with some other driver - in fact, it's kinda fun to watch - but don't make it sound as if your public discussions are a byproduct of popularity. Please. Own your feelings and the expression thereof.
And now we're at the part where your humble host has to pull this set of quotes out again from the one-time kinder, gentler Danica.
"I realize, over time now, how unproductive being angry all the time is and how it doesn't really do any good for my driving ... I think that being positive does."
"But I'm trying to grow up. I'm trying to be better all-around for all kinds of reasons: for myself, for the people around me and for the people I don't know who are around me."
Uh huh. Keep trying there. At any rate we shall see on Sunday if this "evolves" into a high-speed version of roller derby.
