Have you heard about some of the zany things that Chad Ochocinco has done this offseason? You probably have. But if not, you should probably know that he's ridden bulls and tried out for a Major League Soccer team.
These "stunts" resulted in Bengals owner Mike Brown joking (maybe) that Ocho should pick up snake wrangling. Now the wide receiver says he will wrestle alligators.
"I just one-upped (Brown): I am wrestling alligators," Ochocinco told WXIX-TV following a recent training session. "Actually, catching them in the wild, which is going to be really interesting, I am catching them in the wild."
"Don't laugh, like I am serious and you'll see it. And I am living life.
"It's pretty dangerous, I could lose an arm, lose a leg, you know ... so was bull riding," Ochocinco said. "So the chance of me getting hurt on the bull is similar to the chance as me winning the lottery, slim to none. And the same thing with alligators. If he bites me, I can still play with one arm [because] I can kick, seriously."
Ochcoinco CAN kick ... but whether or not he can safely manage to wrestle alligators is an entirely different story altogether.
It may not matter, of course -- there's a new labor deal (hopefully) on the horizon, and once the lockout's lifted, Ochocinco can bank his current -- and any other future -- employer making sure that he's aware of certain clauses in his contract which prohibit him from engaging in dangerous activities.
Although, really, can it be any less safe than associating himself with Terrelle Pryor?
