There’s no getting around it: The Honey Badger sucked me in. I let my guard down on a day I should not have, and when Tyrann Mathieu tweeted out that he ran three miles today without a brace, I dutifully retweeted the good news. Of course, he then deleted it — not after I added my “good news” note and dozens of fans retweeted that — and then Mathieu delivered the “April Fools” punchline. I knew there was optimism in his rehab. But I should’ve known better about three miles of running in April after the nasty knee blowout he had. You live and you learn. I owe him one.
Anyway, there was something real to say about the Honey Badger Tuesday — there is a new episode of the web series “Tenacious,” which is chronicling Mathieu’s rehab from his knee injury.
In “The King In Me,” Mathieu talks about his belief in how everybody, including himself, is a “King.” “I try and inspire people to not run from the world,” Mathieu said.
He also touches on the monotony of rehab. “I don’t try to look at the (big) picture right now,” Mathieu said. “I try to keep my mind on the first game of the season, what I am going to do when I get back on the field. That’s what I think of, because thinking about this process, it can drive you crazy.”
