FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Patriots receiver Chad Ochocinco is still settling into his new surroundings in New England, and he’s taking an unusual approach to his living situation.
“I’m going to do something different, I’m actually going to stay with a fan for the first two, three weeks of the season,” he said Tuesday. “That should be fun, until I get myself acclimated and learn my way around.”
Ochocinco hasn’t yet picked the fan.
“I’m not sure how it’s going to work, but they have to have Internet and have to have Xbox,” he said. “That’s about it.”
Asked if he was serious, Ochocinco said, “Have I ever lied to you before?”
Told there were some “crazy” fans, Ochocinco said, “I rode a bull.”….
“The way I learn a new city is by traveling out, adventuring out, getting lost on purpose,” he said. “This past weekend, I was a little frustrated because I was lost for about an hour, an hour and 30 minutes, and I couldn’t get where I needed to. (But) that’s it. Boston, or actually heaven, has been good.” ESPN.com
Living with a fan for the first few weeks of an NFL season might not be as fun and great as you think Chad. Picture this. You come home to your fan’s one story ranch after a grueling Sunday game where you caught contless passes over the middle. You hobble through the front door and you trip over three pairs of kids sketchers and almost roll your ankle that you tweaked just two hours before. Just before you think your in the clear, the family dog runs up and puts his two paws in your sweet spot. After getting the dog out of the way, you walk into the family room to meet the family you are staying with, only to find that the only seat left in the room is the hassock. Does this sound like a good time Chad?
Please rethink this, because theres no chance in hell your going to rest up well before/after games in a strangers house.
