Ocho - Oh No!

NFL circus star Chad Johnson, who recently changed his name to Chad Ocho Cinco - was told by the NFL and Reebok in order for him to sport his new jersey name he'd have to eat the cost of all his old jerseys with his old name on them.
If Reebok asked Ocho Cinco to pay for the cost of making the unsold jerseys, the total could reach upwards of $4 million (or $50 million pesos). That's kind of an expensive name changed. The Bengals and the NFL really don't want him to go forward with it because of the negative attention it brings the NFL.

Chad and his "arrogant" attitude is said to make Terrell Owens look like 'Humble Henry' so with a boastful personality such as Chad's; typically people want to humble that type of person themselves. And that is what it looks like the NFL is trying to do.

So will we see Ocho Cinco; maybe not if it cost mucho dinero (not funny play on words).

Dance Brother Dance...

JERUSALEM - A performer with the famed Alvin Ailey dance troupe on Tuesday said he was twice forced to perform steps for Israeli airport security officers to prove his identity before he was permitted to enter the country.

I suppose it is world wide now; forcing black men to dance. The most amazing thing is that he actually danced. This is what having a Muslim name can get you when you fly into an Israeli country in 2008 (7 years after 9/11). Full story here.
