Fly Like a Brick

In my best G-Rob newscaster voice, two "stories" that should be wrapped up with the phrase:

"And in other news... water is still wet back to you Diane"

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP)—Danica Patrick paid a $196 fine to settle a speeding ticket after the star race car driver was caught going 54 mph in a 35 mph zone last month.

Patrick, the first woman to win an IndyCar race, was due in traffic court Monday, but a Scottsdale City Court clerk says she paid the fine Wednesday.

The 26-year-old driver was pulled over by Scottsdale police Dec. 9 in her hometown while driving a 2007 Mercedes. A year ago, she was ticketed for driving 57 mph in a 40 mph zone in Scottsdale and was ordered to attend traffic school.

Scottsdale court records show the recent tickets are among several she has received in the past three years.

A call to Patrick’s racing team wasn’t immediately returned.

And of course... Vikes will predictably choke today despite devotion towards buying countless pieces of Purple Jesus apparel, sitting through all the train wreck years like a good fan, and whining about what could have been in 1998.

I love my Vikes, but McNabb looks like he finally mastered counting up to four without using his fingers and unless Jared Allen mistakes him for someone who stole his bike and goes Bobby Boucher on his ass the Vikes' season will be over before I hit the bottom of my third beer.

SKOL Mo'Fos!!!
