Ochocinco Wants a Piece of Roddick
So you thought loudmouth Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco only talked trash to NFL cornerbacks, huh? Well, think again.
Ochocinco, a devout Twitter user and the star of VH1’s Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch, is now touting his tennis game.
The six-time Pro Bowler, who happened to be a regional tennis champion in his younger days, has challenged Andy Roddick to meet him on the court for the second time since January. Ocho tweeted, “How long are you gonna keep duckin me on court, say the place, grass, clay or hard surface, don’t be scared!” Roddick confidently replied, “I might just try to beat u with a frying pan.”
Apparently the two are working on a time and place to meet, but don’t expect this event to happen any time soon. With Roddick preparing for the U.S. Open and NFL training camp not too far down the road, these guys are a tad bit busy at the moment.—Brad Kallet
