    'Ochcinco' Will Adorn The Back Of His Jersey

    Fri May 15, 2009 10:58 am EDT

    'Ochocinco' will adorn the back of his jersey
    By MJD

    The Bengals wide receiver who was born "Chad Johnson" finally gets his wish this season for a really clever and awesome name on the back of his jersey. Sort of.

    I think he wanted "Ocho Cinco," which is Spanish for "Eight Five." He'll be settling for "Ochocinco," though, which is just as nonsensical in Spanish as it is in English.

    Why doesn't he get the two-word version he wanted? Because that's not how he filled out the form. He wrote "Ochocinco" on the legally binding name-change document in Florida, so that's his legal name, and that's what will be on his jersey. One might think that when a man changes his name for the rest of eternity, he'd be pretty careful when filling out the form. Guess not.

    He wanted to make the change last year, but couldn't, because Reebok had already printed up all the "C. Johnson" jerseys that they planned to sell in '08, and if Chad wanted to change, he'd have had to pay for them all. The coast is clear in '09, though, the NFL and Reebok are on board, and are, in fact, already selling the Ochocinco jerseys.

    I hope it's worth it for him. I hope whatever thrill or giggle he gets out of taking the field with "Ochocinco" on the back of his jersey makes him as happy as he thought it would. At this point, I don't think it amuses anyone else all that much.

    I guess "Loco en la Cabeza" wouldn't fit on the back of a jersey.

    Don't know how to say it in Spanish, but in Polish the word is "dupa." And that will definitely fit on the back of his jersey.

    Hmmm...Dupa Ochocinco, kinda has a ring to it don't ya think?

    WHAT SAY YE?

    It should say Ochenta Y Cinco to say Eighty-five. The way his name is written, it says Eightfive without a space. It's like those people that get tattoos written in some foreign language and then find out it doesn't really say what they thought it said.

    I just love the fact that the NFL is kinda screwing him over by using his actual legal name. It's his own fault that he didn't put a space and a capital for the Cinco part of his name. I'm sure he's pissed that he didn't write it out correctly!

    This is ridiculous in my mind. But hey the Cincinnati Bengals fans will be running out to buy his new jersey.

    Imagine if this was the trend years ago.

    William Refrigerator
    Jim Hacksaw
    Ted Mad Stork

    just to name a few....

    So what?

    If the whole world suddenly perceived me as being a complete moron, I'd pay more than he makes to get my reputation back.

    All those millions he's going to make, and he's powerless to seperate "ocho" and "cinco" on the back of his jersey, or the idiocy of the whole situation. Priceless.

    He better hope his stock as a player doesnt fall, or else the possibility of him going to another team only to have #85 already taken would come about..man the irony that would be..
