Photoblogger Jesse Chan-Norris, apparently with a lot of free time, was in Union Square today to witness Indy Car driver Danica Patrick take on what was billed to be a "prominent New York celebrity." It turned out to be Tony Danza. Jesse informed us that it was "one of the weider things he's seen in Union Square" but that it's the "kind of thing that makes New York great." True on at least one count. The event was a promotion for Network Solutions and was taped for the Tony Danza Show. Unlike Danza's last race in a go-cart, there was no flipping and there were helmets involved. Looks like Uncle Tony has learned a safety lesson. Too bad, because the Unintentional Comedy Rating of another accident would have been pretty high.
