Ochocinco plans to live with a Patriots fan

Although the influence of Pats coach Bill Belichick has diluted the flair of one of the most colorful players in the league, receiver Chad Ochocinco continues to find new and creative ways to entertain.

His latest stunt entails a plan to bunk with a Patriots fan.

“I’m going to do something different, I’m actually going to stay with a fan for the first two, three weeks of the season,” Ochocinco told reporters on Tuesday, via  “That should be fun, until I get myself acclimated and learn my way around.”

The criteria hasn’t been identified, but the mandatory requirements are simple.  “I’m not sure how it’s going to work, but they have to have Internet and have to have Xbox,” Ochocinco said. “That’s about it.”

Reminded that some fans are “crazy,” Ochocinco said, “I rode a bull.”

Maybe he should also rent Misery.

    Ochocinco has entered the realm of creepy.

    I wonder if they’re going to have bunk beds?

    That photo of Kathy Bates is pretty funny. Well done.

    Good God Chad how much was that pay cut to play for Billy?

  7. vahawker says: Aug 10, 2011 12:31 AM

    If he is as productive on the field as he is entertaining off it, he should have a monster season(having Brady throwing you the rock certainly will help with that)

    new reality tv show

    “livin with the ochocincos”

  9. drgfri says: Aug 10, 2011 12:49 AM

    Let’s just hope he doesn’t pull a Cromartie and impregnate those fans!

    Whats Brandon Marshall’s wife’s picture doing in a story about Ochocinco?

  11. richatthelake says: Aug 10, 2011 1:04 AM

    I really don’t think eight-tenths of one second qualifies as “riding a bull.”

  12. bearsrulepackdrool says: Aug 10, 2011 1:17 AM

    If he brings that hot chick from Basketball Wives I got a room in the basement juuuuussst for him, lol.

  13. dunks7fbb says: Aug 10, 2011 1:43 AM

    Love him or hate him, 85 is the most entertaining player in the history of the NFL. Who does this kind of stuff…?

    My guess is that he gets kicked out of the Apt after a week for never doing the dishes and eating the last of the lucky charms.

    Ass clown

  15. pone27 says: Aug 10, 2011 1:48 AM

    Hahaha, awesome…

  16. pbolyard says: Aug 10, 2011 2:03 AM

    Really Chad? This doesn’t sound like a good idea.

  17. hobartbaker says: Aug 10, 2011 2:21 AM

    The lucky Pat fan was identified only as Giselle B.

  18. pftequalsgreatjournalism says: Aug 10, 2011 3:11 AM

    Love the Misery reference…

    Child please!

  19. steelnucs says: Aug 10, 2011 4:05 AM

    And here we go….

  20. mandyross84 says: Aug 10, 2011 4:32 AM

    probably the coolest thing i have ever heard. ochocinco continues to entertain me outside of playing football. he is the only reason that i signed up for twitter. what a hero.

  21. gimmeabruschi says: Aug 10, 2011 4:57 AM

    Chad, using the word “rode” is perhaps an exaggeration from what I saw.

  22. jnbnet says: Aug 10, 2011 6:26 AM

    I’m a Patriots fan…..and I’m rolling my eyes

  23. cubano76 says: Aug 10, 2011 6:52 AM

    Hey remember that time they found that Patriots WR in that guy’s basement freezer? Yeah, that sucked.

  24. jersey73 says: Aug 10, 2011 7:09 AM

    I find Chad Johnson amusing at times. But his whole idea of showing he is serious about football and not schtick is not helped by something like this.

  25. starfan79 says: Aug 10, 2011 7:21 AM

    Still trying to figure out how to delete that guy from my Facebook account…

  26. cliverush says: Aug 10, 2011 7:27 AM

    Curt Schilling has a great pad a few miles from the stadium.

  27. davetrudes1984 says: Aug 10, 2011 7:31 AM

    TO musta finally kicked him outta the batcave. Hopefully his new roommate will have enough storage space for his ego…

    This guy cracks me up. Something tells me he would have found a way to become a household name even if he couldn’t run fast and catch footballs.

  29. gooboy6 says: Aug 10, 2011 7:41 AM

    How are you going to handle this one hoodie ?

  30. seabreezes51 says: Aug 10, 2011 7:42 AM

    Great pic……….. Ocho can stay with his biggest fan

  31. jetsfanjk says: Aug 10, 2011 8:14 AM

    I mean I am a Jets fan and all but this Freak Show Ocho, really should be on the JETS. He is the bearded lady at the carnival.

  32. vikesfansteve says: Aug 10, 2011 8:44 AM

    This just in, the head & partially eaten remains of Chad Johnson were found today in the refrigerator of his room mates eldery senile mother who lives in AZ. Johnson who has been missing for six weeks had moved in with the man just 7 weeks ago in the rural Boston area.

  33. ptcraddock says: Aug 10, 2011 8:46 AM

    The Patriots can always just SPY on the fan before he moves in to make sure its safe. PATS CHEATED!

  34. bceltics1010 says: Aug 10, 2011 8:58 AM

    You’re dumb PTCRADDOCK..enough said.

  35. aldashex86 says: Aug 10, 2011 9:06 AM

    Cue the 1st rape accusation of Ocho-Stinko’s career. Good luck with that.

  36. faulkana says: Aug 10, 2011 10:36 AM

    Chad is just damned funny.
    I’m not sure that I like the Pats picking him up, but Bill knows more than I do about football.

    However, I may know more about movies.
    Misery is a total rip-off of an old Clint Eastwood flick called, “The Beguiled”.
    Stephen King should have been sued on this one!
    The Clint flick is great. Do yourselves a favor and check it out.
    I think “The Beguiled” is from 1971. Don Siegal directed.

    This type of stuff is ok by me. I liked the “fun” Chad when he was in Cincy, but got tired of some of the stuff he pulled the last few years like the fraud w/ the car, etc. As long as he doesn’t start doing & saying stuff like he did the past couple years (the joking stuff w/ the edge like about CP and Marvin etc.) and some of the sideline antics, I’m ok w/ some harmless fun. To me, this goes into that category.

  38. joeypickles says: Aug 10, 2011 12:50 PM

    Ya, he shouldn’t be too much of a distraction this season… eye roll…

  39. drmichaelstevenlee says: Aug 10, 2011 1:54 PM

    This reminds me of that Family Guy episode with Tom Brady. “Shi-poopi…Shi-poopi”

    NE better get ready for some antics if he scores alot bc that is just who he is. Child Please….

  40. castleanthrax says: Aug 10, 2011 2:05 PM

    Chad is going to wake up somewhere in Southie with a large wooden block between his ankles and tied down to the bed.


  41. opie333 says: Aug 10, 2011 2:19 PM

    I love it! Whats her name? What does she look like? Damn I bet she’s hot! LOL

  42. kevinfromphilly says: Aug 11, 2011 8:02 AM

    Does the roomie have to do the riverdance every time Chad scores?
