Yesterday in spite-related name-change news, we learned about the man who became War Machine.  Today, the word on the street is that lithium-needing Bengals receiver Chad Johnson has officially changed his last name to Ocho Cinco.

According to Miami radio station 790 The Ticket, which is in Johnson’s hometown, the receiver has legally changed his last name to “Ocho Cinco.” Johnson’s — sorry — Ocho Cinco’s reported name change has been rumored in NFL circles for weeks, and according to the station today, it’s official.

Johnson forewarned the public that a major surprise was coming during a recent interview with Chris McKendry on ESPN’s SportsCenter.

Some folks are already calling him an idiot, but I have to say, I think this is terrific.  We should all get to choose whatever name we want.  Pleasure to meet you, I’m Rock.  Rock Thunderballs.
