Donovan McNabb is still a dope. His well-intentioned Tweet congratulating the very sexy Danica Patrick on her Daytona 500 win, well, it was a bit premature.

On Sunday, Patrick won the pole at Daytona (there’s something hot about that line, and don’t you tell me that there’s not), which means she will start the Daytona 500 in the front row. It was a big deal because she was the first woman to ever win the pole (heh) in Sprint Cup race. But upon hearing this news, obvious race fan dude who just wanted to catch the attention of Danica Patrick, Donovan McNabb, tweeted and since deleted (and I'm a fucking poet…):

Always the sensitive type, McNabb labeled those who corrected him as “haters”:

No, shaking my head. Like in football, race qualifying can actually end in a tie. But we wouldn’t have expected McNabb to know that.
