Tyrann Mathieu, the fierce football player for LSU, gained notoriety this season as the "honey badger."
The honey badger – as you may have learned in the famous YouTube video (below) about the animal – takes what it wants. And it don't care.
On Thursday at Daytona International Speedway, new Sprint Cup Series driver Danica Patrick announced she wants to be NASCAR's version of the honey badger.
"The honey badger doesn't give a crap; he takes what he wants," Patrick said. "That's how I'm going to be this year – like a honey badger."
Patrick acknowledged her honey badger moniker would be "a little diluted" since that's kind of already Mathieu's thing. But she's so pumped about the concept that she even has a honey badger photo as the background of her cell phone.
"It's a mindset," she said. "It takes what it wants."
Actually, it sounds like Patrick loves the YouTube video as much as the honey badger's attitude itself.
"The video is great!" she 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."
