Ochocinco amazed by power of bull

Chad Ochocinco, Ty Murray AP

On Saturday, Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco was thrown instantly from the back of a bull named Deja Blu (if Chad lasted 1.5 seconds on the bull, then Michael Spinks went 13 rounds with Mike Tyson).  Afterward, the most unlikely rodeo attendee since Borat talked about the experience.

Chad said that he doesn’t have the words to describe the power of the bulls as it came out of the gate.  And Chad said he wouldn’t have lasted any longer if he’d been tied to the bull.

Still, we give him credit for trying.  And for not dying.  And now we’ll wait for his next lockout hobby.  Maybe he’ll pick something safer, like jumping the Snake River Canyon, or being shot out of a cannon.

    haha chad looks like Rango in that picture. Yea i’m talking about the recent animated movie

    the replay shows how very, very close he came to being seriously hurt when on the ground as the bull leaps from one side of his torso to the other.

    funny, none of us are amazed by the power of ochocinco’s bull anymore….

    This guy certainly keeps it interesting and I have alot of respect for that. He doesn’t buy into whatever everyone else believes he should do/say…instead he’s just being Chad. The intimidating glare of the media forces many players to conform to some kind of politically-correct, “say all the right things” mold of a player. Chad will show you who he really is, and I think that is a commendable trait. For those of who you don’t care to hear Chad chatter any more…that bull nearly stomped on his face…props.

    Ochocinco may be annoying, but at least he acknowledges the fact that he is getting owned at soccer and bull riding. Seems like he is just trying everything during the lockout to get a sense of how hard other sports are.

    I just watched the video of him actually riding the bull – you might want to post a link to it. Anyway, yeah there’s no way he rode anywhere close to 1.5 seconds – you are right that he got thrown off INSTANTLY. More like he rode for exactly 0.0 seconds.

    Rodeo clown.

  8. kilo0986 says: May 15, 2011 4:32 PM

    I wonder if he felt the same way when the bull called Ray Lewis hit him

    Nice Evel Kneival reference!

    I think Ocho is going to be amazed by a lot of things over the next 5-10 years as he falls out of the league and no one is going to employ him, especially with that attitude. Crap doesn’t fly in the “real world”.

  11. thetooloftools says: May 15, 2011 4:54 PM

    Is he going to run for Sheriff of Rock Ridge any tome soon?

    There is a video floating around somewhere right after this hit where Chad is on the sidelines talking to one his coaches about trying to block Ray Lewis, I can’t remember exactly what was said, but I remember it being hilarious.

    If there’s one person who shouldn’t be amazed by the power of “bull”, it’s 87.

  14. wenwon says: May 15, 2011 5:04 PM

    i’m amazed that this is the third time you guys have blogged about chad riding a bull…

  15. bostontim says: May 15, 2011 5:08 PM

    “Maybe he’ll pick something safer, like jumping the Snake River Canyon, or being shot out of a cannon.”

    I think the latter would be perfect for a man of his caliber.

    Huh? Since when is “ocho cinco” 87?

  17. backindasaddle says: May 15, 2011 5:48 PM

    I think he would be better as a Rodeo Clown.

    You will be surprised at who employable he will be. For starters he won’t need a job. He still has him money. The man doesn’t have vices or lived a huge lavish lifestyle. He doesn’t even drink. He likes to have fun. Sure people will hate on him for that but he don’t care. He understands no matter what he does he will be criticized, it won’t stop him. In the end this attitude will win over the haters sitting on a comment thread.

    When he is out of the league he will have plenty of opportunities floated his way. What “Crap” are you talking about. His hard work and discipline to not treat his body like a toilet. Sorry but guys in the NFL don’t last if they don’t know how to work hard and stay focused.

    what a reversal….the bull throwing him! LOL!

  20. palinforpresidentofnorthkorea says: May 15, 2011 6:32 PM

    Soccer world – not impressed.

    Bull – not impressed.

    Tom Zibakowski – waiting to knock Ocho back to being a Johnson

  21. commandercornpone says: May 15, 2011 6:32 PM

    looks like a reall bull is much more powerful then the bull spewed by chad. whoda thunk it?

  22. hobartbaker says: May 15, 2011 6:39 PM

    Just to have a little fun at the rookie’s expense the old cowboys ran the tether line around the bull’s neck as usual, but then continued it out of sight, through the front legs along the bull’s belly and secured it to his balls. Then they told Och to “keep that line tight, and whatever you do don’t loosen your grip!”.

  23. dietrich43 says: May 15, 2011 6:39 PM

    Chad isn’t nearly smart enough to be the sheriff of Rock Ridge.

    “Ochocinco amazed by power of bull”
    Marvin Lewis and Mike Brown aren’t amazed.

  24. thevikes85 says: May 15, 2011 7:11 PM

    I don’t like Chad Johnson,i’m not calling a man a number.but much respect for the things he has done during the lockout,yo adrian shut your mouth about being a slave and do something to occupy your time,moron.Also much respect for dietrich43 for the blazing saddles reference.

  25. vahawker says: May 15, 2011 7:30 PM

    Looks like he’s straight of Blazing Saddles

  26. norcaleagles says: May 15, 2011 7:35 PM

    Chad needs some football in his life. I like the guy, but maybe he should be focused on football just a little bit more. Last year he did his whole Dancing With the Stars thing and we all saw what kind of season he had after that. I’d be trying to convince other teams that I’ve got football on my mind. Chad is strarting to remind me of the show “Shaq Vs.” Always competing in other sports, but always losing. I agree with another post that I read that said at least Chad realizes he’s getting owned at these other sports. Its nice to see that he’s humbled and not just out there running his mouth.

  27. qoojo says: May 15, 2011 7:35 PM

    I think it took a lot of nerve to get on that bull. I think a lot of you haters are taking him too seriously.

  28. stairwayto7 says: May 15, 2011 8:07 PM

    Who cares about Ocho-stinko! He can’t win a playoff game, needs a 50 yard head start vs a horse, afraid to face Phelphs in swimming and lasted 1.5 sec on a bull???

  29. murraysons says: May 15, 2011 8:14 PM

    The snake river canyon? It will not fly…

  30. whatsafairway says: May 15, 2011 8:23 PM

    After seeing him in that hat, I’m just trying to imagine Chad talking like Jeff Foxworthy…

  31. coolheir says: May 15, 2011 8:50 PM

    ..gotta love ocho..he just never seems to take things too seriously while at the same time he’s not afraid to try new experiences in his life, all while having a great sense of humor about things. I find the guy extremely entertaining and agree with the posters that say good employment beyond his playing days won’t be a problem for this guy.

  32. jbaxt says: May 15, 2011 8:59 PM

    Why did you put up a picture of the sheriff in Blazing Saddles?

  33. cover2blitz0 says: May 15, 2011 9:19 PM

    he should be amazed by the power of bull hes made a career out of it. sadly enough hes known as much if not more for his off field antics than being a talented wr

  34. jtfris says: May 15, 2011 10:38 PM

    I really really hope he will try Australian Rules Football next. I would watch that.

  35. mhs8031 says: May 15, 2011 10:41 PM

    Ocho’s next big challenge: Jeopardy contestant

  36. jimmysee says: May 15, 2011 11:00 PM

    More guts than brains.

  37. voyager6 says: May 15, 2011 11:47 PM

    Hugh!!!!!! (said after getting thrashed by the bull)

  38. voyager6 says: May 15, 2011 11:50 PM

    @mhs8031 said: Ocho’s next big challenge: Jeopardy contestant

    Nope. An appearance on “I’m smarter than a fifth grader”!

  39. dfinpds says: May 15, 2011 11:56 PM

    Complete and utter egotistical TOOL!!!!!

  40. MichaelEdits says: May 15, 2011 11:59 PM

    If the poverty-stricken owners ever scrape up enough donations to start the NFL back up, and the Bengals are playing an away game, will fans be treated to footage of Ochocinco being flung off the bull on the Jumbotron?

  41. tashkalucy says: May 16, 2011 12:12 AM

    The “power of bull” is what has gotten this slightly above average NFL WR where he is today.

    Why is he amazed?

  42. ernestbynershands says: May 16, 2011 1:20 AM

    2 thoughts:
    1. His name is now Chad Unosegundo.
    2. His next lockout tryout is authoring his memoir/cookbook: 100 ways to fix Crow.

  43. ernestbynershands says: May 16, 2011 1:22 AM

    Another thought…
    Has Ochocinco been Ochocinco for Ochocinco games?

  44. ernestbynershands says: May 16, 2011 1:25 AM

    I heard the bull renamed Ochocinco. His name is now B!¥€&.

  45. faderwader says: May 16, 2011 7:18 AM

    Please just stop, Chad. Your end zone dances were sweet. Your celebrations were entertaining. Now it’s just sad, distracting and hurting your trade value. Please just stop.

  46. garyman1 says: May 16, 2011 7:57 AM

    Look, I know that I have never ridden a bull like that myself….but come-on… Betty White could have lasted that long.

  47. kevinfromphilly says: May 16, 2011 8:22 AM

    Did they give the bill one of Chad’s ears?

  48. raijinnokumo says: May 16, 2011 9:03 AM

    In the near future of his career he’ll prove to be better at riding pine than riding bull.

  49. rayguyreturns says: May 16, 2011 11:17 AM

    I’m surprised none of the Cowboy fans have quipped that he wears his hat like a true dude. What a farce.

    Cleavon Little was a more convincing cowboy.
