Watching the college football national title game Monday night, you might have noticed that Brent Musburger referred to LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu as “the Honey Badger” as much as possible.

And when I say “you might have noticed” I actually mean it was painfully obvious to anyone who watched even a nanosecond of the game. Was he trying to be hip? Did he not know the player’s actual name? Does he just love the nickname? Was he trying to kill by alcohol poisoning the people playing the “Musburger says Honey Badger” drinking game?

Or has a generation of mindless acronyms instead of original nicknames (A-Rod, D-Will, I-Rod etc.) made us all go bucknuts when we hear an actual nickname for an athlete?

Watch two Honey Badger videos after the jump. Both narrators are men with extremely homosexual sounding voices by the way.
