While many NFL players have spent the offseason and lockout trying to stay in shape by working out wherever they can, Chad Ochocinco or Johnson or whatever is living every coach’s nightmare. Sure, the aging wide receiver has been running and working out in Atlanta to be ready to torment Marvin Lewis next season, but he also decided that he wanted to ride a bull at the professional level. He could have waltzed into a bar in some podunk tourist trap and tried his hand at a mechanical bull like any good sorority girl would, but no. He wanted to ride a 1,500-pound living, breathing, pissed off bull.
In this case, Chad’s 1,500-pound bull was named Deja Blu and he almost stomped the life out of the 33-year old Saturday night at the Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Georgia. Chad made it a whopping 1.5 seconds on Deja Blu to earn himself a $10,000 appearance fee, before the bull angrily tried to crush Chad’s helmet with his hind legs.
“I was mad that I couldn’t ride it out of the chute,” said Ochocinco, who received a $10,000 appearance fee.
“I knew I was in over my head,” Ochocinco said.
“I’m sure the NFL is pissed, but I don’t follow their rules anyway,” Ochocinco said. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
Forget the NFL, I have to think that somewhere Chad Pennington saw this story and just yelled, “Are you f*cking kidding me?”
