    I DO think it’s great that Danica set a few
    “firsts”, or records for women, which shouldn’t be forgotten at all,
    but I don’t think 8th place is that big of a deal, considering she ADMITTED on-air
    after the race that she didn’t have a plan for how to win the race after taking
    that lead. We were watching working at DISH, but my shift ended halfway
    through the race and I ended up watching the rest of the race live on my iPad.
    I have the new DISH Anywhere app (works on Androids & Apple devices), and
    it lets me watch all my live TV channels and DVR from anywhere I can get
    internet access. I flipped it on riding the light rail home, and although
    I was secretly rooting for Danica to pull it out, I’m hardly surprised she came
    up a bit short; the guys will definitely consider her a bigger threat next time
    though!
