GoDaddy's Daddy Drools For Danica


This really qualifies as old news but since it was overshadowed earlier by Motorola and we were prompted by our monthly GoDaddy email, we'll share with you that GoDaddy has, in addition to Motorola and many others, hooked up with Danica Patrick to sponsor her Andretti Green Racing car. In a video that includes the unveiling of the new #7 Team Motorola IndyCar, GoDaddy CEO Bob Parsons interviews his new "GoDaddy Girl" in a most excruciatingly awkward manner that can only be likened to Joe Simpson obsessing about his daughter Jessica's 34DD's. While Bob reads from cue cards, Danica sits next to him and through her bored demeanor, you can just hear her say, "What the fuck am I doing here with this cheese ball?"

Bob gushes about his new GoDaddy Girl saying, "Danica thrives on competition, speed and power. She is edgy, innovative and fun! All qualities we identify with at Go Daddy. She is redefining racing and is appealing, no doubt about it." Of course what he really wishes he could say while he sits there on the couch with her is, "Screw Candice Michelle, Go down on Daddy right now Danica!" Oh, she'll also appear in a GoDaddy commercial next year but Bob wouldn't comment on whether or not it would be in a Super Bowl ad or whether there'd be a Super Bowl ad at all.

Cheese factor aside, Bob does know how to get his press.

Why the eff is everybody fawning over this bitch? There have been at least two other female Indy racers...where are all their endorsement deals? So far, Danica is the Anna Kournikova of auto racing...but clearly not as hot.

She did an FHM spread. That sealed it for her.

She needs implants to take her to the next level.
Racing, that is, you know, safety issue...
As a spokesmodel, she does a credible job when given the opportunity. She is articulate and pleasing to look at with good lighting and makeup.

During the height of Danica-mania, I was on pit lane and in the interview room for last year's IRL race at Kansas Speedway.

All I know is that it was 100 degrees outside and after driving 300 miles she gets out of her car, takes off her helmet and looked perfect. That's hot.

KFad's statement about Danica being hot and snake's statement about her being articulate tell the entire story. The roundie round world which has been a boy's world for a long time needed her, in front of the public and press and she does a great job. For those who want to cry there have been other female drivers, so what.

Wow... That belongs in the Howard Draft Hall of Fame. And yeah you're right... You just know he wishes he could write unlimited head time into the contract. Is she going to sub for the chick with the big tits in the next Super Bowl extravaganza!!!
