I like to think that I don’t ask a lot of you, the reader.  I try to put out a collection of fun, educational, and entertaining pieces about things of interest to me several times a week for your literary pleasure.  In return I ask for a couple comments and emails (I would like to point out that I’m still oh-for-life on chest shots emailed to me) and occasionally for you to spread the good word if you like what you find here, but that’s about it.  That all changes today…

This goes out to the folks to the great state up north and those who spent and/or spend time cheering for the University of Wisconsin.  If you haven’t heard, the Badgers have recently accepted the transfer of star NC State quarterback Russell Wilson to their football team.  This kid is not Cam Newton, meaning he doesn’t guarantee the Badgers a Big Ten title let alone a National Championship but he’s pretty darn good and will ensure we’re in contention for the first if not both crowns.

Here’s a story to get you caught up to speed if this is news to you: http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=6708649

The fact that Wilson chose the Badgers (over the defending champion Auburn Tigers no less – who are lacking a QB as well) matters not.  It’s great, he’ll be fun to watch, and this ensures the Badgers will be good next fall when they may be the only form of football worth noting on the weekends.  What is important is what we’re going to call this kid (stay with me here).

Every sports star needs a nickname (that’s not entirely true but the payoff is worth it) and there’s a perfectly good nickname sitting out there for the taking.  So let Chi-Guy.com become the place that kicks off the official campaign to welcome Russell “Honey Badger” Wilson to Madison.  “Honey Badger” you ask?  Damn straight Honey Badger.  Watch.  Learn.  Spread the word.  That’s all I ask…

This is going to work, just remember where you heard it first.  Russell “Honey Badger” Wilson don’t take no shit from nobody.
