Moves like Badger

Every once in a while I can keep it short and simple for ya, and tonight is one of those times…hopefully.

With the NFL draft starting tomorrow evening I thought we could celebrate early with a fun video about a former LSU tiger turned current Arizona Cardinal that we all know and love, Tyrann Mathieu.

I found this link a while back and wanted to share it with people who would also get a kick out of it and that is you fellow tiger fans!

The song is a remake of the popular hit “Moves like Jagger” and features lyrics that give definition to Mathieu’s style of play and level of talent. It’s one you can listen to over and over and you would hardly realize it isn’t the original.

The lyrics go a little something like this:

“This is the honey badger. Oh the honey badger is just craaazy, pretty bad a$$. Look, Ooooh!

He takes what he wants, if it feels right. He drops a few taunts when it’s game time. He comes to play, he’ll never behave.

He’ll have his way! The most fearless animal in all the animal kingdom. He’s in control and he’s shaking. He puts on a show cause he’s making big plays everywhere, the badger don’t care, he don’t like to share.

And I say take me to the game and I’ll show you, he’ll take anything he wants he’ll own you. He’s got the moves like badger. He’s got the moves like badger. He’s got the moooooooo-ooooves like badgeeer.

Who you tryin to throw that ball to? Look into his eyes and he’ll own you. He’s got the moves like badger he’s got the moves like badger he’s got the moooooo-oooves like badgeeer.

He runs so fast he can stone you, knock you on your a$$, explode you. Strip you of the ball, laugh while you fall, he’ll take it all.

He’ll run back a punt then you’ll blow up. Some sucker who jumps he leaves him so broken and scared, the badger don’t care, he goes everywhere.

And I say take me to the game and I’ll show you, he’ll take anything he wants he’ll own you. He’s got the moves like badger. He’s got the moves like badger. He’s got the moooooooo-ooooves like badgeeer.

Who you tryin to throw that ball to? Look into his eyes and he’ll own you. He’s got the moves like badger he’s got the moves like badger he’s got the moooooo-oooves like badgeeer…..”

 

And they carry on for 6 minutes and 39 seconds. It’s media like this that re-instils the love of LSU football in fans even after shaky seasons. These parody type songs, phrases and memes give us hope that not only is LSU football loved by those in the great state of Louisiana but also all around the globe and there are hundreds of talented fans and alumni who spend hours putting together these creative pieces depicting the indescribable wonder of the game and the team who has played a major role in college football for years and years.

Now I might be a little biased here, being so die hard, but the unlimited creativity that surrounds the fan base of LSU is indescribable. With everything from harlem shake videos like this one that made it on the top 10 college harlem shake’s video to hype videos like this that send chills down your spine. Then there’s memes like this and this that will make you laugh. The fan art of players, past and present remind you of the true spirit of the legacy that is LSU.

So yes, there are millions of other things on the internet and everywhere depicting every other team, but of course LSU’s media is the best, and the people who create it inspire me too. I can only hope to one day be recognized as the blogger who gave fans hope, and renewed their love and passion for Louisiana State University football. After all, come draft day, LSU will lose several legendary players but this fall we will see a new crop of awesome and inspiration will hit us like a ton of bricks once again… so geaux forth and celebrate the team that represents not only power, dominance and endurance but also creativity, true fans and the love of the game.

 

Geaux tigers!
