    No word on whether he's ever surfed atop a van.

    Teen Wolf is, of course, an awesome movie. It has Michael J. Fox, a girl named "Boof" and, well, werewolves. Also, it has Styles, Fox's lovable sidekick-type friend that has huge sunglasses and sports crazy antics. Yeah, he's awesome.

    Greg White, Tampa Bay defensive lineman, thinks the character is so awesome, actually, that he has officially changed his name in order to honor the guy.

    Tampa Bay's second-year DE has officially changed his name. On Monday, a Hillsborough County Circuit Court granted White's request to change his name from Gregory Alphonso White Jr. to Stylez G, White.

    Circuit Judge Steve Scott Stephens signed off on White's petition and as White walked through the Bucs locker room Monday, he gleefully distributed copies of the final judgment.

    White said he picked his new name from a character in the 1985 movie "Teen Wolf,'' starring Michael J. Fox.

    This is, naturally, not the first name change we've seen in the NFL this year. You may recall Chad Ocho Cinco, some guy for the Bengals who made some noise about getting a different name at some point this season.

    Of course, 85's logic was that ... well, there was no logic. He's just desperate for attention. White on the other hand seems to legitimately believe that Stylez is an awesome name (it does have a "z" in place of an "s", so there's an immediate cool factor there) and that Teen Wolf is the end-all, be-all of pop culture bad-assness. He, naturally, would be 100% correct.
