Danica's Disturbing Ad
Danica Patrick :: Marlena Bielinska/SI

A reader tipped me off to this, um, interesting picture of Danica Patrick signing something for a fan. However, after doing some research, I found out it's from a 2009 ad, and I was ready to pass on using the item. But then I realized that 1) many of you may not have seen it and, 2) why pass up a chance to link to Patrick's SI Swimsuit photo gallery.
