Ohhhhhh-cho Loco

I Twittered a few weeks ago about how Chad Johnson, WR CIN Bengals, filed in Florida to legally have his last name changed from Johnson to Ocho Cinco and it seems that he has actually gone forward with it.

You see, Chad Last-Name-To-Be-Changed was fined by the NFL in 2006 for wearing "Ocho Cinco" on the back of his jersey. As I recall when watching the game, there was a grand production that centered around ripping the "Ocho Cinco" off to reveal his true last name, at the time.

NFL policy states that a player may only wear his (or her) last name on the back of the jersey. Now that Chad has changed his last name, will we see Chad "Ocho Cinco" on the back of his jersey this year?

You know what I'd really like to see? Trade Chad I-Haveta-Have-My-Name-In-The-Spotlight-Constantly to a team that has the number 85 retired. That list includes:
  • DET #85, Chuck Hughes
  • CLE/LA/STL #85, Jack Youngblood
Hmmmm... not prominent enough for Ocho-Loco. That boy will have to go to a large media market in order to fully test the limits of his ego. As a friend of mine said the other day, "Too much of a good thing is sometimes too much."

Anyone got an over-under on the time until Chad Johnson-Ocho-Cinco goes muy loco?
