Bengals wide receiver changes last name to Ocho Cinco
Now I don't normally post on the weekend but I couldn't resist this bit.
The Cincinnati Bengals receiver has legally changed his name to Chad Javon Ocho Cinco in Broward County, Fla., a switch that became official this week. Johnson, who lives in Miami, didn't return a message left on his cell phone Friday night.
Now for those who don't know, when it comes to football the wide receivers and the corner backs are the divas of teams with good reason.
Your out there by your self isolated from your teammates on the field.
And when that ball comes your way all eyes are on you ready to praise you or call you a scum bag
You have to have ego to play that spot.
And no one out side of Terrel Owens has more ego than Chad Johnson.
Chad just has more crazy with mixed with his.
The gold teeth, blond mohawk, end zone theatrical productions, my man is a couple of steps shy of living in Dennis Rodman world.
I could see this coming, Chad, I mean Ocho, has been playing spoiled brat all year with his team because he hasn't felt loved enough.
He wanted out but his team showed him love by telling him hell no, so he has been dragging his foot all preseason.
The press has been taking him to task for it, sort of mocking him, and a couple of ESPN announcers poked fun of the fact that he wanted to be called first by his nick name Ocho Cinco.
So what does he do he pulls a Marvin Hagler, one of my favorite fighters who decided that since the press wouldn't call him by his nick name "Marvelous" he would change his name to Marvelous so that they would have no choice.
I'm not mad at him, I like the nuts in the sports world gives you something to talk about.
I look forward to seeing the announcers call out your name this year Senor Ocho Cinco.
