The Hater Nation has poked fun at Lebron Patrick in the past because, well, it's just really really fun. But we would never go out of our way to jinx her and openly root for her to lose by putting her on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
That's a real jerk move.
But at some point, do you think she would ever ask herself, "Maybe I shouldn't do these kind of things until I actually win an Indy race or something?"
And maybe she will do that this weekend, but still. This whole thing smacks of the WWF pushs of Rocky Miavia that made the public turn against him.
And maybe that's the anwer we are seeking.
Maybe Patrick needs to do a heel turn here at Indy and grasp a new image. Running over a dude in the pits was a pretty good start. But maybe she needs to go the Tony Stewart route. That would be a whole lot more refreshing than the "Will she do it" routine we are fed every year, like it's a very special episode of Saved by the Bell.
