    I just have to share the exchange I had with the opposing captain of my 9.0 mixed league tonight. Sooooo - my team is named the Honey Badgers (after the wildly popular YouTube video). When I went over to introduce myself to the opposing captain, the first thing she says to me was "why did you name your mixed team after my Fall 4.5 team? I think that's a little strange." She actually thought that she was the only person to have ever heard of the awesome Honey Badger. She actually thought I trolled 4.5 women's leagues in search of possible team names (I am a guy and have never even been to a women's league match in my life).

    I told her that over 80 million people have viewed the Honey Badger video on YouTube and that there were probably hundreds of leagues that have had the same idea. This just underlines the fact that we tennis players are a crazy bunch.

    Some people graduate from high school but never leave. I have a feeling that lady must have been the Original Mean Girl.

    Hmm, not being a big YouTube watcher myself, I would just have assumed you were a bunch of LSU fans!
