One day after future Hall of Famer Derek Jeter retired from the New York Yankees last October, he began the next phase of his life by debuting a new web site.
The premise was simple: a site about athletes, written and edited by athletes. And Jeter named it, appropriately enough, “ThePlayersTribune.com”.
One of the first “senior editors” Jeter “hired” was NASCAR star Danica Patrick.
Three months after her first column for TPT (where she talked about her relationship with fellow driver and love interest Ricky Stenhouse Jr.), Patrick is back with a new feature called “What the (Blank?)” – a fill-in-the-blanks kind of Q&A.
As TPT stated, “Just like on the first day of elementary school, we asked our athletes to answer 10 questions about themselves so you could get to know them better. Next up is Danica Patrick.”
It’s pretty clear Danica had fun with this little exercise.
We thought we’d give you some highlights, particularly as she let her hair down in a couple of answers, so to speak (her answers are in italic quotes):
* I am the best “hair model” on my team.
* My biggest nightmare is “split ends and failing at anything.”
* “California” is my favorite road city.
* If my entire team participated in a Royal Rumble, the last (wo)man standing would be “I really think me.”
Those are just appetizers. There’s six more questions and Danica’s answers.
