Everyone knows The Honey Badger. But what about Optimus Klein?
The nickname, which plays off the beloved fictional leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime, popped up earlier this week on twitter and has gained a bit of momentum from fans since. A reader suggested yesterday Optimus Klein would look good on a T-shirt, and a fan sent in a humorous Optimus Klein question to ESPN’s Big 12 Mailbag as well. So it’s out there.
If Klein makes it to the NFL, we may just get the showdown we've all been waiting for. Optimus vs. Megatron (Detroit Lions' WR Calvin Johnson). I guess we'll save that for the sequel.
