Danica Patrick Willing To Cheat For Victory
Total Pro Sports – What would you do to win? If you ask most MLB players, like Manny Ramirez, the honest answer would no doubt be “steroids”. How about Indy Car drivers?
Would Danica Patrick take performance enhancing drugs for a victory?
In an interview with Dan Patrick (yes, the names may get a bit confusing) for sports illustrated, Danica was asked that very question. The conversation went a little something like this:
Dan: “If you could take a performance-enhancing drug and not get caught, would you do it if it allowed you to win Indy?
Danica: Well, then it’s not cheating, is it? If nobody finds out?
Dan: So you would do it?
Danica: Yeah, it would be like finding a gray area. In motorsports we work in the gray areas a lot. You’re trying to find where the holes are in the rule book.”
Since the comments went public, Danica has taken back her comments, but does she really mean that? It is amazing what some people would do to win. Now the only question is do you applaud such efforts that show how much desire one has to win, or do you frown upon these cheaters. I would choose the later, and hopefully in the future Danica does too.
Either or next time I see Danica Patrick, I’m gonna ask her if she can sign my chest!!
