Not to be confused with girdle, I came accross this cool little tool that allows you to¬† render a bunch of words into an artistic text cloud. You can adjust colors, layout and fonts. Since we’ve got an unruly tag cloud ourselves, I decided to go with it and this is what I came up with:

The only caveat is that our two-word tags (like player’s names and two-word team names), were interpreted as spearate words. But it’s still interesting that “Mark” is the most common word in our tag database; it’s obviously a popular baseball name.

Too bad we can’t use the cloud above (or at least, a two-word version of it) for reals.
