Yahoo Sports- If Ricky Stenhouse Jr. popped the question to Danica Patrick, he's not going to get a "no" answer.
In a taped interview with Darrell Waltrip during Fox's prerace coverage of Saturday's Sprint Cup Series race at Texas, Waltrip asked about the answer to a possible proposal. Patrick said she would say "yes." And then when his brother, Michael, did his usual insipid tour of pit road before the race, he told Stenhouse what Danica's answer would be.
Yes, writing about Danica Patrick and a future wedding is a pretty popular story. We're fully aware of that. But we also want to take the opportunity to say that it's juuuuust a bit awkward to ask a question about a potential marriage proposal response in a nationally televised interview.

Stop the tape! Stop the tape! Did you guys hear that? No, not the old southern bumpkin spoiling an eventual marriage proposal. I'm talking about that very same hick talking to the most accomplished female in racing like she just sat and rolled over on command. I mean, "oh, good girl"? Really Darrell? She said she would marry him. She didn't say she would stop chewing up his shoes and shedding on the furniture.. Way to go Danica, congrats on not shitting on the carpet today, here's a treat for your efforts! I feel like the lunacy of that slip got swept under the rug since they started talking about her dog directly after. Beautiful segway production team. Maybe they should be giving you the doggy treats. Unfortunately, I know what some good old fashioned, possibly inadvertent, sexism sounds like. Here's a little hint Mr. Waltrip, don't ruin the most special moment of a couple's engagement, and definitely, DEFINITELY don't talk to a grown ass woman like she walks around on four legs and sniffs her own asshole.
P.S. Thanks Danica. I try to stick up for you and you go ahead and talk about how you eat dog treats 20 seconds later. Way to spit in the gift horse's mouth. Just completely undermine my blog with one bite of a 'Beggin Strip'. I haven't been this disappointed in you since your refusal to get up during your last 'Go Daddy' commercial.
