Danica Patrick doesn't look horrible.
Patrick recently shed her racing suit for a bathing suit for the annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. And surprisingly, it's not as horrible as you would think.
Patrick has traditionally looked about as sexy as a quarter of Quaker State in some of her famous photo shoots. Go Daddy and even Playboy couldn't get rid of that vapid stare that she normally has in her "sexy" photos. Patrick typically looks about as uncomfortable as Matt Leinart in a father-of-the-year contest in most photos. But photographer Ben Watts actually put some life into Danica's eyes and that is not an easy thing to do.
Now, you tend to get a lot of people bashing the SI issue because other magazines such as Stuff and Maxim publish this monthly. But those rags look like the underwear section of the Montgomery Ward catalog compared to what SI normally puts out. Even Playboy's recent photography can't seem to match what SI is putting out with the swimsuit edition.
Sports Illustrated is still the best at this sort of thing and almost makes up for the fact they still keep Peter King employed.
