I half expected Tuesday's announcement by Danica Patrick to be an update on the coat drive she told the world about during her "Good Morning America" appearance last week.
I mean we've come to expect a lot of nothing on the Danica-to-NASCAR front over the last several months with speculation and conjecture outweighing any real news.
That finally ended with Tuesday's press conference in Phoenix - sort of.
Patrick will indeed try her hand at stock car racing with JR Motorsports in 2010, the entity owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his sister Kelley.
She will pilot a No. 7 Chevrolet sponsored by GoDaddy.com, which will also back her Indy Car Series effort with Michael Andretti's team.
Tony Eury Jr., Earnhardt's cousin and former crew chief, will call the shots for Patrick with her stock car debut coming in the ARCA Series opener at Daytona in February. And Patrick will tune-up for that debut by taking part in the ARCA open test at Daytona December 18-20.
Other than that, nothing else was unveiled.
How many races Patrick runs in NASCAR has yet to be determined according to Kelley Earnhardt, who is the General Manager of JPM. It's expected the schedule will be front loaded before the IRL season begins in March and then pick up again after the final Indy Car checkered flag in October.
That makes sense and will allow Patrick to concentrate on her open wheel effort without the added pressure of jumping back and forth.
But the question of how fast Patrick can adapt to the full-bodied stock car world remains and there are many skeptics in the NASCAR garage.
Open wheel drivers with better credentials than Patrick have struggled in trying to make the jump to stock car racing with some, like Dario Franchitti and Jacques Villeneuve - standouts in Indy Car and Formula One racing - unable to cut it in NASCAR.
Juan Pablo Montoya finally came into his own this year, his third full season in NASCAR.
Whether Patrick can become competitive in a handful of Nationwide races while still juggling her iRL slate is a big if in this whole equation.
What isn't a question is Patrick's ability to be a lightning rod and attract exposure and attention, both things NASCAR can use these days. She will immediately shine a brighter light on the NASCAR world with her decision to dip a toe into the stock car racing pool and the ARCA test at Daytona may be the most attended in the long history of that Midwest-based series.
The cat's finally out of the bag and it's up to Patrick to prove herself.
I think it will be fun to watch.
