Though it remains to be seen whether the Bengals want to keep receiver Chad Ochocinco around for the last year of his contract, Ochocinco is back in Cincinnati. For now.
The folks at CincyJungle.com spotted several tweets from Ochocinco, indicating that he plans to work out with teammate Jerome Simpson, and that he’s treating 100 locals to a free dinner at Buca di Beppo’s, an Italian restaurant chain. (And the phrase “Italian restaurant chain” is enough to make every Italian grandmother spin in her grave — except the ones who aren’t, you know, dead yet.)
If you want free assembly line Italian food served family style in the hopes of obscuring the fact that it’s not real Italian food, show up at 7:00 p.m. ET.
Hey, at least you won’t get sprayed by the undercooked kidneys of a chicken thigh/back that the “certified cook” failed to properly crack.
