You've probably heard of this Danica Patrick individual -- the one who's definitely better than you are at driving a car. She was in attendance for Game 1 of the Chicago Blackhawks' series with the Minnesota Wild, sitting in the front row, right at the glass.

But maybe she should have been sitting on the bench. The Blackhawks' invited Patrick to play "Shoot the Puck" -- the most creatively named intermission game in hockey -- between the second and third periods, and it took just one shot for the auto racing trailblazer/Go Daddy spokesperson to show that she's got the stuff.

No reaction to scoring the goal. Yep, act like you've been there before.

Her secret, if you're wondering: sensible footwear. Look at those tan flats.
