Ocho on Marvin Lewis: 'I'm going to whup his ass'

Posted by Will Brinson

This is going to sound like a story we've already written once or twice this summer (no, no, it has nothing to do with Kenny Britt), but apparently Chad Ochocinco and Bengals coach Marvin Lewis are not BFF's at the moment.

In fact, Ocho recently told a radio station that he was going to "whup [Marvin's] ass" because of the shots that Lewis has taken over the summer at Ochocinco.

"I don’t know. Hopefully Marvin is doing this maybe to help me out," Ochocinco told The 2 Live Stews, via Sports Radio Interviews. "Maybe he is trying to cause some friction between himself and me. Maybe he doesn’t like me for real. He doesn’t like me well I don’t like him either. Maybe he’s doing this to help the situation out.

"Maybe he’s trying to do this to show Mike Brown I don’t think I can coincide with Chad, but dammit I can’t coincide with him either and if he really feels that way when I see him I’m going to whup his ass.”

I could have SWORN that Ocho already said this about Marvin Lewis at one point this year, but maybe I'm wrong.

Let's see here … *flips through file* … he's ridden bulls, he's reportedly lost his work ethic, he's scouted incoming rookies, he's threatened to change his name (again), he's promised to wrestle alligators, he's tried out for an MLS team, he's -- ah, here we go.

He's complained about Marvin Lewis using the word "ass" already this offseason.

Hopefully you'll pardon me for the confusion.

Chad Ochocinco is going to wrestle alligators

Posted by Will Brinson

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?
