Danica Patrick's Unfair Advantage???

This perhaps must be the most ridiculous thing I've EVER heard in the history of sports. Danica Patrick (who has yet to win a race in 47 IRL events) is being penalized by the IRL because she weighs too little! Yes, it's true! The preposterous notion that Robby Gordon off-handedly mentioned (and deservedly got lots of flak for) last year has been adopted by the IRL! Is it her fault that she stays in shape and has a small frame? Should a driver that weighs 250 pounds be allowed to take weight out of their car because they weigh too much? I guess so, if we follow this logic. Sheesh!!!

Needless to say, this is sure to stir up a hornet's nest. For more on this story, please read Roy S. Johnson's Blog Baller's, Gamers & Scoundrels... The entry on Danica and the IRL's crazy decision is entitled To The IRL, Size Matters (Too Much).
