Ochocinco to ride bulls amid lockout

Posted by Will Brinson

Not much is entertaining about the lockout, but give Chad Ochocinco credit: his excursions into other jobs are pretty interesting. First, he was a "professional" soccer player with the local Kansas City MLS squad, Sporting KC.

Now, Ocho will be joining the PBR on tour. Yes, the Professional Bull Riders. At least that's according to OCNN News.

"#OCNNBreakingNews Due 2 the lockout I'll be participating n the PBR as a professional bull rider n Duluth,GA. May13th-14th Lil Taco #winning," Ochocinco tweeted on Thursday afternoon.

I tried to navigate the PBR website and dig up a press release about this, but I just ended up getting really thirsty.

Instead, I'm going to assume that Ocho will be handling this similarly to his soccer escapade.

Meaning, he'll be out there riding a bull and he'll be a part of the tour and the event, but he won't actually end up in any sort of dangerous position that could compromise his future as a football player.

After all, Ocho might have plenty of money and he might not be playing in Cincinnati next year, but surely he'll be playing somewhere -- provided he doesn't end up getting gored in May or anything.
