And The Mock Dock gets a mention! Check out the last paragraph.
Is that not the coolest? I mean, yeah, the author thought I was a “he.” BUT STILL. Obviously, other than not realizing I was a girl and whatnot, he TOTALLY UNDERSTANDS ME. And besides, when I wrote him to thank him for the mention, I let him know that I was, in fact, of the female persuasion, and that I loved his article.
He writes, “When Mr. Ashley Judd – this would be Dario – drove past on his victory lap, he was booed without mercy. Either Dario was not as popular a champion as Brent Musburger was telling the gearheads at home, or Boog Powell had replaced him as driver of the bright red No. 50 car. Then when I looked up at the video screen, I saw Mrs. Franchitti waving her floppy hat and skipping down the pit lane. The boos were mostly for Ashley Judd, not Dario Franchitti.”
Yup. Because regular people with Actual Brains find her to be an obnoxious, pretentious, thunderstealing blowhard.
Plus, she’s puffy.
