With March still a-ways out I wanted to spend some time othe lighter, fun side of the Sounders. Because I can’t wait. #isitmarchyet
This is the first of two videos for the post. It’s been a well-known video. It’s called the Crazy Nasty Honey Badger. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch it now. It’ll explain a lot later in this post.
The Honey Badger.
That was nasty right?!? But it was awesome! Now I am a little biased but I think Ozzie Alonso is the best holding midfielder in the league right now. He played all minutes last season minus 90 (for yellow card accumulation).
I give you Osvaldo Alonso, the honey badger.
The one thing that also helps the comparison is the red birthmarks on his forehead that totally remind me of a honey badger.
He was once asked, “Have you heard about your nickname, The Honey Badger?”
“Yeah, I’ve heard a little bit about it and that’s fine. If that’s what people want to call me, I’m not going to argue with them. I’m just glad they have a good nickname for me.”
