Since Sen. Ted Cruz in January managed to claim total ownership of sports website Deadspin by posting the photo it requested of him (actually, his stand-in, Duke’s Grayson Allen) playing basketball, we thought we’d try to scoop the sports pros by posting this pic of Cruz trying on Kyle Busch’s 2015 NASCAR championship ring.

Since the basketball photo managed to trigger Deadspin’s writer and editor so badly, we’re anxious to see if any of Cruz’s staff wants to take another shot at the boss.
