Alabama Animal Clinic Takes Shot at Honey Badger (Picture)

The fans in Alabama care a lot about their football. You already knew that. So it’s no surprise to see them gloating after their win over LSU in the National Championship Game. As Kegs ‘N Eggs pointed out, The Fairhope Animal Clinic in Fairhope, AL wasted little time taking a shot at LSU’s Honey Badger, Tyrann Mathieu, following the Tigers’ loss to Bama on Monday.

Sure it’s a pretty classless move by an animal clinic, but at least nobody is poisoning trees.

Danica Patrick Wants to be the Honey Badger of NASCAR

It seems like everyone is using the honey badger as motivation these days. First it was LSU CB Tyrann Mathieu who earned the nickname because of his style of play. Then it was 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh sharing the video with his players. Now it’s driver Danica Patrick, who will be racing in the Sprint Cup Series for the first time beginning in February.

“It was last year, I think, somebody showed me this video of the honey badger, and the commentator on it was very, very funny,” she said. “Anyway, the honey badger, he doesn’t give a (flip), he takes what he wants. And that’s how I’m going to be this year, like a honey badger.

Even though Patrick plans to embrace the honey badger style, she recognizes it’s getting a little played out.

“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. I bet he’s not feeling like a honey badger,” she said in reference to LSU’s loss to Alabama. “I don’t know, it’s a mindset. I even have a honey badger picture on my screen saver on my phone to inspire me. It takes what it wants.”

Patrick’s first NASCAR race will be the Daytona 500 on February 26th. My guess is it will be someone like Kyle Busch taking what he wants, not Danica.

Jim Harbaugh, 49ers Using the Honey Badger for Motivation (Video)

You didn’t think that LSU CB Tyrann Mathieu was the only honey badger in sports, did you? Turns out there are other teams playing off the viral video of the world’s most fearless animal.

Last month, Jim Harbaugh spliced some footage of the honey badger into highlights of the team’s season and it resonated with the players. Observe:

Harbaugh was recently asked about the characteristics the team shares with the honey badger.

“We showed it to them. I’m not sure what game it was. But, it resonated with them. Often, the guys will kid each other about that or kind of taken on some of the characteristics of the honey badger. Honey badger don’t care.”

Harbaugh better hope his team has a better showing in the postseason than LSU’s H. Badger. That guy was eaten alive by Bama like one of the cobras from the video.
