So Chad Ochocinco (nee Johnson) has gone from the Cincinnati Bengals to join the Brady Bunch in Foxborough.
If a guy wants to change his name to his uniform number, more power to him, but why not just change it to Chad Eightyfive? What's Spanish got to do with it? He was born and raised in Miami. Hmmm. On second thought, nevermind.
Consider -- if Chad goes blazing down the field and Tom Brady throws him a 50 yard pass -- would be call it the "spanish fly" pattern?
At that, I wonder about a couple things. What would have happened if he got to New England and the #85 was already taken by another guy, that wouldn't give it up? Say they assigned him #1. Would he change his name to NumeroUno? That might not sit well with...
The man in the hoody, head coach Bill Bellichick, who is known not to tolerate a whole lot of ego crap out of his players. He runs a tight ship. If the new guy starts flapping his gums and pulling the same antics he did in Cincinnati, between Bellichick and the veterans in the Patriots locker room, they'd likely put him out to dry blowing in the wind like freshly laundered sheets..
Which begs the question..... would he then be a -- gasp -- hanging Chad?
That was in Florida too, wasn't it?
Funny how things go proceso completo (full circle) sometimes.
