This whole “Honey Badger” trend/jargon/catch-phrase is getting almost Tebowesque. Imagine what would happen if Tim Tebow said after today’s NFL playoff game versus the New England Patriots that he was ready to go “Honey Badger”- the entire web just might collapse.

Danica Patrick has a new NASCAR season on her hands. And she may have to make some serious adjustments this racing season as the governing body (I’d really like to govern Danica’s body! hey-yo!) has introduced rules designed to inhibit the two-car tandem drafting common at restrictor plate tracks Daytona and Talladega. So Danica’s team may have to consider some new tactics.

But Danica had some colorful words about what’s ahead.

“And the honey badger, it was last year, I think, somebody showed me this video of the honey badger, and the commentator on it was very, very funny,” Patrick said between test sessions at Daytona International Speedway on Thursday. “Anyway, the honey badger, he doesn’t give a crap, he takes what he wants. And that’s how I’m going to be this year, like a honey badger. But I feel like it’s a little diluted with the football player that has the honey badger nickname, too. He’s No. 7, as well.”

The football player she’s referring to, of course, is LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu. LSU lost 21-0 to Alabama in Monday night’s BCS title game.

“I bet he’s not feeling like a honey badger. I bet — anyway, the video is great,” Patrick said. “He eats a poisonous snake and he falls asleep and wakes right back up. The video is funny, so I encourage you all to watch that. I think Randall something is the commentator or the name on the YouTube video.
