As exciting as the 2011 NBA Playoffs have been, there is plenty of other juicy sports swagger news to discuss this week.

Danica Patrick had a rough week, but it ended well for the female racer according to Bob Kravitz at the Indy Star.

"And after the longest hour-and-a-half of her professional life, she ripped off four laps at an average of 224.861 mph, good for the 26th spot on the grid. She emerged from her car and, for the first time all weekend, smiled. Joy suffused with utter relief."

It's not always easy to be a trendsetter, but Patrick has embraced the role since breaking out onto the scene.

Additionally, the 2011 French Open is underway, and there will be plenty of drama that unfolds as the tournament plays out. 

We'll touch on all these stories and more, so stay tuned into the swagger channel.
