The mouth of Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco never seems to quit. In a recent article with NFL.com Ochocinco elaborated on his new plans to stay busy during the lockout.
After having tried out for a professional soccer team. Challenged his head coach to a a cage fight. And showed the world how long it takes to fall off a Bull (1.5 Seconds FYI). Ochocinco feels he needs to “one-up” Bengals Owner Mike Brown and do something Brown didn’t even mention during his “snake wrangling” quote.
I just one-upped [Brown]: I am going to wrestle alligators. Don’t laugh, like I am serious and you’ll see it. And I am living life.
In Okeechobee [FL], I am wrestling alligators. Actually, catching them in the wild. Which is going to be really interesting, I am catching them in the wild. I forgot the individual’s name who is going with me, who does it for a living. It’s pretty dangerous, I could lose an arm, lose a leg, you know… so was bull riding. So the chance of me getting hurt on the bull is similar to the chance as me winning the lottery, slim to none. And the same thing with alligators. If he bites me, I can still play with one arm. I can kick, seriously.
That’s right folks, you read it right. Ochocinco is going to go wrestle with alligators. After obviously mastering all things Professional Bull Riding, Chad feels he needs to do the next natural thing; wrestle an alligator.
Hopefully some part of Ochocinco actually remembers how his other
publicity stunts ventures turned out. Because not making a soccer team, and falling off a bull are a little bit less dangerous then wrestling with an alligator. (Specifically in the fact neither the soccer team, Bull or Rodeo Clowns tried to bite a chunk off one of his limbs.) If Chad does get this last event in before the CBA conflict resolved, more power to him. I know one thing is for sure, I don’t think Bengals fans will have to worry about A.J. Green having his arm bit by an alligator.
