Excerpt:

FORT WORTH, Texas –  Danica Patrick will have to get used to being called “old man” sometimes. That’s the phrase Tony Gibson, her new NASCAR Sprint Cup crew chief, has so often used to refer to drivers he’s working with, including Mark Martin and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Gibson said Friday it just comes out for some odd reason and he’ll probably call Patrick “old man” a few times. He was already apologizing and hoping Patrick would forgive him when he does. Patrick says she doesn’t really care what people call her. Gibson, who is taking over as the chief of the No. 10 Chevrolet this weekend in Texas, says he’ll try to stick to calling her “D” like he has when they’ve talked on the phone.

Key:

  • Aggregate Sentiment is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s overall sentiment.
  • The Mean is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s average comment sentiment.
  • The Standard Deviation, when there are enough quotes, will indicate an individual’s consistency of sentiment (i.e. a Standard Deviation of 0 would mean they were very consistent in their sentiment and 1 would mean they were very inconsistent).

Note that quote stats are likely to be meaningless beyond the aggregate score due to the tiny sample size. However, they are always provided just in case you find something useful there.
