One of the recent fears among those invested in professional athletes is that that all of this new media stuff like blogs and twitter and facebook will inadvertently lead to some superstar saying or doing something that damages their career. Like "They pay my sorry ass too much" or "I hope the terrorists bomb Dallas next" or "Yo, just shot a hooker...LMAO!"
Often though the fears are that they'll say something bad relating to a sponsor. You can't be paid a ton of money from Pepsi and say "Enjoying a might fine Coke at the movies" and not expect to it to cost you dearly. Perhaps Danica Patrick might be learning this lesson soon.
It's probably disconcerting enough for potential sponsors that Mrs Hospenthal rarely mentions her sponsors in the ways other drivers do (yet another reason to think she wont be racing in N****R anytime soon) but she does come through for her sponsors in other ways. Witness the fact that her twitter account is backed by "Tissot", makers of finer watchery products.
And speaking of twitter, and of sponsors, here's what Danica said on her twitter page yesterday.
oh ya sorry for the lack of tweets.....i didnt know what the charges would be in canada?!
So I guess we just learned that Boost Mobile doesn't offer any Canadian plans.
